Winter Season Shaping Up to be Best-Ever for Athletics
Thanks to the restructured middle school, enrollment growth, and an expansive new facility, Belmont Day Athletics isn’t just writing a new chapter, it’s starting a whole new book. This winter, 103 athletes chose between five unique offerings – badminton, basketball, fencing, volleyball, and wrestling – and will compete on eight different teams. With the Barn opening just around the corner, excitement is at an all-time high within the program. Our middle school athletes, teams, and coaches have always set the standard of excellence among our interscholastic community. Now, Belmont Day will have the facilities and offerings to match.
- The boys’ varsity basketball team added a trio of hardworking eighth graders, Kelyn Kiecza, Cole Lemack-Bremen, and Brennan Thomson to the roster this winter.
- Out of a competitive group of athletes, Emi Biotti and Margot Klug were the lone sixth graders to earn spots on the girls’ varsity basketball team this winter.
- The fencing team returns a trio of talented eighth graders this year as Stella Balter, Sonya Lyons, and Ronan Mullan all suit up for their final winter in a BDS uniform.
- Eighth graders Max Simon and Dylan Skenderian begin their wrestling careers with a familiar face in charge. Head coach Brian Laskowski reunites with the duo he coached this fall on the varsity football team.
- Classmates Eli Burger, Everett Dalton, and Colton Largay will be counted on to keep the badminton team focused and working hard despite not having any interscholastic games this winter.
- As the only two sixth graders on the volleyball team, pioneers Claire LaFarge and Sarah McPeek are hopeful that the sport will be offered interscholastically next year.
