The girls’ basketball program won their season openers on Thursday afternoon behind a pair of high-speed performances. The junior varsity team opened up at home against Fayerweather, jumped out to a quick lead, and never looked back. Eleanor Stine and Violet Hancock paced the Blue & Gold in the scoring column en route to a commanding 18 point win. Kalkidan Shiferaw and Sophie Cutie chipped in with some big plays of their own, and the JV team is now off and running. Down the road in Brookline, the varsity team was also taking care of business. Seventh grade teammates Sara Colangelo (13 points) and Julia Casey (11 points) combined to score 85% of the team’s points in a hard-fought 29-25 win. The home team couldn’t keep pace with the relentless Belmont Day attack, which didn’t slow down on either end of the floor. Team veteran Annika Vittal was the pacesetter for visitors, using speed to the basket and aggressive defense to set the tone. The team will look to keep things rolling at home next week against Pike.

  • Wrestling opened their season with a 28-21 win over LCA with decisive pins from team veterans Alexander Meredith, Quinn Clark, and Jun Murakami. The team also received wins from newcomers Colin Parry, Joshua Harriette, and Jaden Park.
  • The boys’ varsity basketball team nearly doubled up Park with a 52-27 win. Andrew Green paced the team with 28 points and Rami Flummerfelt chipped in with 11. Vicente Aguerrevere came off the bench and buried a huge three.
  • The varsity fencing team took down ISB 17-10 this week. Hughy Marsan won all three of his foil bouts, Carter Bradshaw only surrendered one point (5-1, 5-0, 5-0) in epee, and Anna Bibler had a dramatic 5-4 comeback in sabre.
  • The boys’ junior varsity basketball team lost a heartbreaker (33-32) at home against Fayerweather. Mylo Rosenfeld controlled the offense. Murilo Santos made some big shots, and Zeke Fine battled on both ends of the court.
  • The badminton & squash team traveled to the Murr Center at Harvard two times this week. Adam Ahmed showed his skill on the Ivy League hardwood while newcomers August Wilmot, Brynn Franklin, and Veronica Wang all looked strong.
