Historic Fall Season In the Books

It was a fall athletics season like Belmont Day has never seen. The uniforms never came off the shelves. The visiting teams never arrived. The scoreboards never were turned on. But … the coaches showed up, the athletes laced up their sneakers, and athletics continued. Over the course of ten weeks and through three unique offerings, middle school athletes played field hockey, sprinted up Old Concord Road, orienteered through the woods, completed fitness circuits, went on sustained runs, mountain biked on the trails, competed in flag football games, ran in weekly cross-country races, learned how to parkour, squared off on the soccer field, jogged through pine alley, and camouflaged themselves in the trees. Yes, the program looked and felt different, but athletes and coaches found opportunity within the change. It will be a season we’ll never forget.
