With back-to-back wins against Austin Prep (3-0) and Shady Hill (7-2), the girls’ varsity soccer team improved to 4-1-1 on the season and are hitting their stride just in time for their showdown with Meadowbrook a week from today. The team scored 10 goals in two games thanks to strong offensive play from Julia Casey, Claire Huang, and Cassie Greiner. Likewise, the defensive unit of Sammie Cumming, Julia Popa, and Grace Sullivan locked down the opposition, only allowing a pair of goals in the two games. The girls’ JV soccer team is also seeing positive results from their hard work, earning their first win of the season with a commanding victory over Newton Country Day. Nuria Kumar-Warikoo got the scoring started early in the first frame with a beautiful strike from the top of the box and Belmont Day never looked back. Other highlights included team captains Penny Gottesman and Abigail Chang connecting on a skilled volley off a beautiful corner kick, Reema Wulfsberg’s breakaway goal at the end of the first half, and Lucie Mora’s reliable play on the wing. Both teams will look to continue their winning ways next week.
