Athletics Update: Basketball Program Gears Up for Stretch Run

Following almost three weeks off, the basketball program hit the ground running this week as they prepare for a busy interscholastic schedule. All four of Belmont Day’s teams will square off against Shady Hill next week, which is always a good litmus test to start the second half of the season. The varsity squads will be counting on veteran players Copeland Maier, Sam Rodriguez, Laurice Bandar, and Claire Hunag to take their games to the next level during the stretch run and become impact players on the court. On the other side of the curtain, the junior varsity teams will look to build on the positive momentum they established before break and keep Rowan McCoy, Eileen Luo, James Shields, and Deniz Kas all moving in the right direction in their development.

  • The wrestling team will be back on the mat next week against Roxbury Latin. Newcomers Altay Jomazer and Sam Doyle will look to continue their upward trajectory.
  • A trio of seventh grade classmates (Vatche Balikian, Jonathan Laipson, Edwin Voiland) are already making an impact on the varsity fencing team this winter.
  • After a handful of successful squash experiences before winter break, the badminton team returns to campus. Sam Springer and Harvey Borisy are off to great starts.
