The track & field team faced its stiffest competition of the season this week, prevailing over the Inly School 64-56. The eight-point margin was the narrowest of the year for the Blue & Gold who have been using a balanced attack to score points across all events. The win improved the team’s record to 6-0 and set the table for the potential of the first undefeated season in program history when the team squares off against Carroll next week. Leading the way for Belmont Day are a program-record nine state qualifiers including four athletes who have each qualified in three events: Sam Leviton (1600m – 800m – 400m), Quinn Clark (1600m – 200m – 100m), Clive Sutton (shot put – 400m – 100m), and Aidan Tan (long jump – 200m – 100m). Joining this impressive group at the State Championships early next month are Alexander Meredith, Roudi Youssef, Violet Hancock, Pippa Ellner, and Simon Wright. It’s already been quite a season for Belmont Day track & field, but the best may yet to come.

  • The boys’ lacrosse team split their week with a 6-3 loss to Austin Prep and a 9-6 over Shady Hill. Yaseen Saeed and Foster Larabee shined in both games.
  • Lucy Walther, Genevieve von Rekowsky, and Fatoumata Bah all scored twice during the girls’ junior varsity lacrosse’s 12-6 loss to Fay this week. Eden O’Sullivan chipped in with spirited play.
  • The girls’ varsity lacrosse team toppled Austin Prep to improve to 4-3 on the season. Julia Casey (4) and Sara Colangelo (2) led the scoring and Samantha Cuming controlled the draw.
  • The JV tennis team ran into some tough competition this week, losing 8-0 to Fenn. Madoka Hubbard and Anna Bibler battled hard and repeatedly tracked down shots during their 6-3 loss.
  • Varsity tennis co-captain Rhys Kaplan continued his stellar play during a hard-fought 6-4 loss at third singles this week. Fay prevailed 8-0 in the match, but Belmont Day played well.
  • The varsity ultimate team split their week with a win over Needham and a loss to Shady Hill. Kiernan Patel played great defense and Calum Dunbar made some impressive catches.
