With a program record of thirty-three athletes playing tennis this spring, Belmont Day has added a third team to the athletics offerings. Led by Alex Tzelnic, intramural tennis will kick off its inaugural season with eight to ten players eager to learn the game and hone their skills. The team will not compete against other schools but instead focus on improving their foundational skills in a supportive environment surrounded by teammates with similar experience levels. On the flip side, the varsity team returns five players. Penelope Bern, Griffin Targum, Louis Cantor, Rhys Kaplan, and Lucy Yin are all back for Coach Jim Walker and will be counted on to help bring the new players up to speed. The varsity team will look to improve on their 4-4 record from a year ago and open up their season at home against the Pike School on April 3.

  • Eighth graders Liv Dawson, Brynn Franklin, Annika Vittal, and Jovana Zivanovic will lead the talented girls’ varsity lacrosse team this spring. Coach Nyland has high expectations for the squad.
  • Isadora Eiref and Aidan Tan are the only seventh graders on the track & field team this spring. The roster is made up of 19 athletes consisting of an even split of team veterans and first-time runners.
  • Seventh graders Calum Dunbar, Kiernan Patel, and Ethan Zipkin are back for their second season on the varsity ultimate team. The trio will be counted on as impact players on the field this season.
  • First-year riders Ella Kamenski and Ewan Wheeler are off to a great start for the mountain biking team. The crew wasted no time getting out on the trails and has been riding hard all week long.
