Athletics Update: Cross Country Finishes Strong with Win Over LCA

Last weekend the cross country team traveled out to Devens, Mass. to participate in the State Invitational. Among the hundreds of runners from across the state, the Blue & Gold were easy to spot thanks to their bright gold jerseys, vocal support of their teammates, and strong finishes across all races. In an event that could pose a logistical challenge, Coach Anne Armstrong, as always, had her team dialed in and ready to run. Following the successful showing at States, the team squared off in a dual meet against Lexington Christian Academy on Wednesday afternoon. Behind a dominant 1-2-3 finish by Sam Amaratunga (13:49), Sam Leviton (14:00), and Calder Wilmot (14:14), Belmont Day cruised to an impressive victory in the final meet of the season. In addition to the strong finishes at the top of the score sheet, Oliver Gottesman and Marlon Kasse both saved their best for last, running their best times of the year. Congratulations to the entire cross country team on a memorable season.

  • The varsity football team rolled over Carroll to finish the season 5-2-1. Eighth grade classmates Ruby Kokinos and Nikos Axiotis finished their season on a high note and were active on both sides of the ball.
  • Owen Bantham-Livermore and Theo Kelman provided a strong defensive presence while Marco Frazzoli-Cassi and Caleb Frehywot did the rest during boys’ soccer’s 2-1 win in their finale against LCA.
  • The field hockey team blanked LCA in their final game of the season. Newcomers Olivia Dawson, Fiona Holland, and Nina Cohen-Perlmutter all played well. Avery Schneider and Aleta Sandoski netted their first goals.
  • The JV football team finished their season with a win over Park, improving their record to 5-1-1. Bodhi Demers and Ellis Anderson both had big games offensively for the Blue & Gold. Gianni Sqillante shined on D.
  • The girls’ soccer team upped their record to 4-5 following a lopsided win over LCA this week. Annika Vital, Alex Kadnar, and Quincy Treisman all popped in their first goals of the season in front of a great home crowd.
  • Betel Zewude and Nadia Lomeli had standout performances on the defensive side of the ball in JV soccer’s season finale. The duo cleared the zone effectively all day and helped push the ball upfield.
