Brearley Athletics was happy to welcome back the years-old tradition of Homecoming! Although this past Homecoming was not the same as in years past, we all found a way to show our Brearley pride. The Upper School celebrated Homecoming Week with AA-sponsored Spirit Days, wearing Homecoming T-shirts and making team banners. Wednesday kicked off the athletics events with a nail-biter tennis match against Chapin. Thursday our ⅞ Soccer and Volleyball teams played well to clinch two wins over Chapin. Friday the Beavers enjoyed another day of wins with Cross Country and Junior Varsity and Varsity Volleyball all beating the Gators soundly. Cross Country was happy to host a big crowd of fans in Central Park while Volleyball knew fans were cheering from afar—at a viewing party on the 610 pier where 11 pizzas were devoured in record time! Saturday gave us beautiful weather, great competition and tasty tacos. Field Hockey fought hard to the final minutes of overtime to lose by a goal, but Soccer made Chapin pay with a 3-0 blanking, marking the end of a fun, festive and couldn’t-come-soon-enough Homecoming 2021.
