BHS After School Activities Cancelled, 2/7

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Staff:

 

All afterschool activities will be cancelled for this afternoon and tonight. The buildings will be closed to the public.

 

The only after school programming that will take place are the “after school care” programs in our elementary and middle schools.

 

For our staff that means that after students leave we will have our Wednesday Department or Principals meetings and then close the buildings.

 

As stated all after school and night events are cancelled.

 

Thank you.

 

Respectfully,

 

John P. Phelan

Superintendent of Schools

Belmont, Massachusetts

BHS Girlhood Project

On Friday, 2/2/18, 16 female students and Assistant Principal, Ms. Hurtubise, attended The Girlhood Project (TGP) Conference “Redefining Girlhood: From Margin to Center.” It was a day of celebration, co-creation, community, and critiques, featuring keynote speaker Dr. Dominique C. Hill from Amherst College.

Beginning on 2/13/18, the same cohort will attend an 8 week course called Girlhood, Identity, and Girl Culture taught by Dr. Amy Rutstein-Riley at Lesley University as part of a service-learning project with her undergraduate students. We will learn about the social and cultural construction of girlhood and how cultural practices help form girls’ identities. You and the other girls will be mentored by undergraduate students on topics such as fitting in, negotiating identities, and the possibilities for social change. We are grateful for a generous grant from the FBE (Foundation for Belmont Education) which funds this project.

Congratulations BHS Boys Varsity Swim & Dive Team

Belmont has proven to be the best in the Middlesex League with a perfect 7-0 record, and an outstanding victory at the 2018 league championship meet this Thursday 2-1-2018.

 

The freshman group this year deserves some recognition. Swimmers such as; Jason Iler-Keniston, Dylan Jones, Norman Fu, Jack Hayes, Edward Lee, Christian Kokoros, and Tor Metelmann were a huge asset coming into the 2017-18 season. 2 freshman relay records were broken. The freshman Medley Relay: J. Hayes, T. Metelmann, D. Jones, E. Lee; 1:56.07, as well as the freshman 200 Freestyle Relay: T. Metelmann, J. Hayes, C. Kokoros, E. Lee; 1:39.59 during our last dual meet of the season against Watertown. Six other freshman records were broken by Tor Metelmann; The 200 Free: T. Metelmann; 1:59.94, 200 Individual Medley: T. Metelmann; 2:03.76, 50 Free: T. Metelmann; 23.19, 100 Free: T. Metelmann; 50.62, 500 Free, T. Metelmann; 5:07.37, and 100 Breaststroke: T. Metelmann; 1:01.22 ’18. Tor was certainly a huge asset this year, and as a freshman shows huge potential in the pool. Tor’s breaststroke time also set a new varsity record, and a previous 200 IM time set the pool record during our first meet back in December 2017.

 

At Leagues, Tor placed 2nd in the IM, 1st in the breaststroke, and was a part of the 2nd place Medley Relay team, and 1st place 200 Freestyle Relay team which both broke varsity records.

 

Freshman, Jason Iler-Keniston, and Norman Fu, both did an amazing job this season. At leagues, Justin placed 5th in the 500 Freestyle and Norman Fu placed 7th in the 500 Free.

 

Sophomores, Michael Pizzuto and Justin Dong, are among the few swimmers preparing the next few weeks for states and sectionals. Justin Placed 5th in the 100 Backstroke at our recent League meet, missing 4th place by only 1-100th of a second (.01). Justin was also part of the 400 Free Relay, which placed 3rd at the league meet. Another sophomore, Ilias Arredouani, placed 1st in the diving event for the second year in a row with a score of 187.15, which allows him to compete at the sectional meet next week.

 

Juniors, Damien Autissier, Rickey Ye, and Sam Thompson, also earned us a lot of points at the league meet this past Thursday. Damien placed 3rd in the 200 Freestyle, and 2nd in the 500 Freestyle. Sam placed 4th in both the 50 and 100 Freestyle events. Rickey Ye placed 5th in both the IM and the Breaststroke.

 

Last but not least, our seniors and 5 Captains, Will Findlay, Antony Bulat, Nate Green, Bruce Westgate, and Luc Durand all ended their high school swim careers with a bang. Nate placed 11th in the Backstroke. Bruce placed 11th in both the 50 Free and Butterfly. Antony placed 6th in the IM, and 3rd in the Breaststroke. Will placed 5th in both the 50 and 100 Free, and was part of the 1st place 200 free relay which broke the Varsity record, and 3rd place 400 free relay.  Luc Durand finished his season off taking 2nd place in the Fly, breaking our varsity record with a time of 55.13, and 2nd place in the Backstroke. He was also part of the Medley Team which broke the Varsity record, and 400 Relay team at leagues.

 

After our 1, 3, 5 sweep of the Breaststroke event, we only needed to place 5th in the final event, the 400 Relay, in order to beat out Lexington to win the league meet this Thursday. Every single swim and point counted towards our overall score of 437. Lexington placed second with 411 points and reading placed 3rd with 393. This league championship was probably the most competitive I’ve seen my years as a coach and swimmer in Belmont.

 

Belmont league All-Stars:

Ilias Arredouani (So.), Damien Autissier (Jr.), Anthony Bulat (Sr.), Luc Durand (Sr.),

Will Findlay (Sr.), Tor Metelmann, (Fr.), Samuel Thompson (Jr.), Rickey Ye (Jr.)

 

Our season was again one of the best Belmont has seen in over 20 years. My swimmers have made me a proud coach, and their accomplishment will live on for many years to come.

 

Congratulations Belmont boys, you certainly earned it!
