After a few weeks away, the boys’ varsity lacrosse team shook off the rust and squared off against DCD in a competitive match-up on Thursday afternoon. Playing without team captain and leading scorer, Liam Brodeur, the boys’ team entered their game with a challenge to create more offensive chances. Andrew Green answered the bell and kicked things off with a win on the opening face-off that he took directly to the cage for the first goal of the game and the team never looked back. Green paced the Belmont Day offense with 4 goals and 2 assists, getting help from Oliver Gottesman, Quinn McCaffrey, and Ezra Wolfson who all chipped in with timely scores. The defense was equally as impressive, with team captain Ellis Anderson limiting DCD to a pair of goals and cementing a second-half shutout for a 7-2 win. In an afternoon full of standout performances, none was better perhaps, than the play of second-year goalie William Li. Li was dynamic in net, recording 13 saves on 15 shots, and frustrated the DCD attack all day. Boys’ lacrosse now sits at 2-1 after the win.

  • The JV ultimate squad was rained out this week, but Hugue Marsan, Wyatt Baker, Christian Atem, and Jordan Levine had a great week of practice, continuing to improve their skills.
  • The varsity tennis team made the most of a rainy week behind strong play from Alex Kadnar and Kavi Kumar-Warikoo who focused on finding their rhythms and finishing at the net.
  • The girls’ lacrosse team outscored DCD (4-2) in the second half, but came up short 10-7. Team captains Avery Schneider, Quincy Treisman, and Aria Goodpaster led the comeback.
  • The track & field team edged out Fenn/Nashoba 73-64 on a muddy track on Thursday. Zach Kromah earned 13 points with a 1st Place finish in long jump and shot put.
  • Julia Street attempted some big jumps, rolled over obstacles, and crushed some challenging terrain, during the mountain biking team’s rides this week. The group rode some bridges and obstacle courses.
  • The varsity ultimate team lost to Wellesley 15-8 this week with eight different players scoring points. Jaden Park and Luke Brenneman both had impressive scores for the home team.
