The track & field team traveled off campus this week for a tri-meet against Shady Hill & BB&N. The Blue & Gold jumped out to a fast start with notable performances in the field events. Eighth grade classmates Alexander Meredith (26’2”), Quinn Clark (24’3”), and Clive Sutton (21’3”) swept the shot put, while sixth grader Violet Hancock recorded an impressive 11’5” in the long jump. On the track, Belmont Day swept the 1600m with Sam Leviton (5:29), Quinn Clark (5:34), and Alexander Meredith (5:54) all coming in with sub 6:00 times. Other strong showings included second place finishes for Pippa Ellner (1:18) and Clive Sutton (1:10) in the 400m, a third place finish from Aidan Tan (30.39) in the 200m, and another first place finish from Sam Leviton (2:39) in the 800m. The team will look to continue their success next week on the road against Fessenden.

  • Sixth graders Evan Bae and Graham Chisholm have earned starting spots on the boys’ lacrosse team and will be counted on for big minutes in the team’s season opener next week.
  • Maraki Shiferaw will be between the pipes for the girls’ varsity lacrosse team this spring, earning the position in part from her strong performance last year on junior varsity.
  • Anna Bantham-Livermore, Nihka Linhart, and Eileen Luo have shown steady improvement over the first three weeks of girls’ junior varsity lacrosse.
  • Siblings Alexander and Henry Kiraly will be a dangerous 1-2 punch for the varsity tennis team this spring and may even be paired together as a doubles team.
  • Anna Bibler joins a strong group of veteran eighth grade classmates on the junior varsity tennis team this spring.
  • Mackenzie Ekechukwu and Sohan Shah will look to provide some consistent leadership on the intramural tennis team this spring. The seventh grade duo is off to a solid start.
  • Eighth graders Carter Bradshaw, Tadhg O’Sullivan, and August Wilmot are all newcomers to the varsity ultimate team but will be counted on to make plays this spring.
  • Joshua Harriette and Harvey Borisy have brought a steady approach to the junior varsity ultimate team this spring and have been working hard to improve their skills.
  • Altay Jomazer and Clark Rutherford have been ripping up the trails for mountain biking. The sixth grade teammates pushe the pace every day and are eager to get after it.
