Athletics Update: MTB Shreds Great Brook Farm

Belmont Day’s mountain biking team has grown exponentially in gnarliness since its inception four years ago. This year’s squad benefitted from extended Monday rides, leveling up throughout the season, and culminating in the first-ever MTB “away game” at Great Brook Farm on Wednesday. The “opponents” were the roots, rocks, bridges, boulders, trees, and even a horse on the path. Aside from the horse, the team skillfully dispatched the opposition. Ella “Kamenskillz” Kamenski and Clark “Rutherfire” Rutherford showed their resilience on a steep climb, “Captain” Sal Pattisall used their eighth grade leadership and horse knowledge to guide the team around the four-legged beast, and Altay “Jomazing” Jomazer, Eyan “Mount” Morales, and Ewan “Double Ew” Wheeler were nimble and relentless. The team logged a 5+ mile shred that not-so-coincidentally ended up at the Great Brook Farm’s homemade ice cream stand. It was the last obstacle of the day, and they proved up to the challenge.

  • The track & field team recorded the first undefeated season in program history following a narrow 73-64 win over Carroll. Roudi Youseff and Violet Hancock swept the field events for BDS. Clive Sutton had the race of the day in the 400m.
  • The girls’ JV lacrosse team finished their season on a high note with a strong performance against Carroll. Mame Gensler netted her first goal of the season. Fatoumata Bah was excellent on the draw and Lucy Walther was great on offense.
  • Carroll toppled Belmont Day’s varsity lacrosse teams yesterday in a pair of hard fought games. Eighth grade captains Andrew Green, William Li, Annika Vittal, and Liv Dawson all finished their careers on a high note for the Blue & Gold.
  • The tennis program swept Beaver with a pair of dominating wins to end their seasons. Captains Lucy Yin, Rhys Kaplan, Kalkidan Shiferaw, and Josie Stevenson led the way for their respective teams with strong play and great sportsmanship.
  • Both ultimate teams collected dramatic, one-point wins on the road against Beaver yesterday in their final games. First year players Murilo Santos, Soleil Flanagan, and Annika Cash all shined for Belmont Day and will be the future of the program.
  • The intramural tennis team improved tremendously this spring. Newcomers Wren Kass, Sam Springer, Bea Stevenson, Henry Ward, and Maren Whitman will all look to make the jump to an interscholastic team next spring after a successful campaign.
