The track & field team opened up the interscholastic season with a home meet against Shady Hill on Tuesday. The squad came out firing on all cylinders and battled to an 18-18 draw after the field events. Zach Kromah, Edwin Voiland, and Anurag Mujumdar finished 1-2-3 in the shot put. Kromah repeated his first place finish in the long jump and was joined by Caleb Frehywot (2nd) and Gabriel Burd (3rd) who rounded out the scoring in that event. On the track, Belmont Day swept two of the most exciting races of the afternoon with Caleb Frehywot and Emme Taylor both taking home first place in the 200m. Newcomer Jun Murakami (200m) and team veteran McKenna Daley (400m) chipped in with a pair of runner-up finishes in races that were decided by less than one second. Sam Leviton rounded out the highlights with dominant wins in both the 800m and 1600m. The speedy seventh grader won both events by more than 20 seconds and will be tough to beat this spring en route to the State Championships in June. At the end of the day, Shady Hill squeaked by with a 79-62 win, but Belmont Day is poised for a successful season with talent across the board. 

  • Andrew Green and Ezra Wolfson each popped in goals during their gritty performances against Shady Hill this week for boys’ lacrosse. The duo was all over the field and bounced back up after every hit they took during the team’s hard-fought 7-4 loss. 
  • Girls’ varsity lacrosse opened their season with a frustrating 12-8 loss to Shady Hill. Julia Casey, Perin Fine, and Quincy Treisman scored two goals apiece. Laurice Bandar and Ilana Brauner rounded out the scoring for Belmont Day.
  • Shady Hill outlasted varsity ultimate 15-8 in a game that was closer than the final score. Joshua Flanagan brought energy to both sides of the field, Giddy Borisy made some great cuts, and Calum Dunbar shined on defense for the Blue & Gold.
  • JV teams will open up their competitive seasons next week. Liv Dawson and Brynn Franklin will bring some experience to girls’ lacrosse. Madoka Hubbard and Kalkidan Shiferaw are ready to rock for tennis. August Wilmot has looked strong for ultimate.
  • Bodhi Demers and Lucy Yin had a great week of practice for the varsity tennis team. Both athletes have made improvements in moving their feet and are hitting the ball with more accuracy and power. The team takes on Fessenden next week.
