MBS Celebrates Homecoming
Community gathers on campus for MBS sports
On a beautiful fall afternoon, Morristown-Beard School alumni, parents and students gathered on campus to celebrate Homecoming on October 15th. The day provided a perfect opportunity for folks to reunite with old friends and classmates, and watch the Crimson sports teams compete.
Everyone had plenty to cheer about as the girls’ soccer team, the field hockey team, the volleyball team and the football team were all in action.
The girls’ varsity field hockey team picked up the only varsity victory for MBS on the afternoon with a 4-3 win over Randolph. Lizzy Pellicane '12 led MBS with two goals, while Delaney Flinn '14 and Gabby Hyman '15 also scored for the Crimson. The Morristown-Beard JV volleyball team defeated Lacordaire Academy for the other MBS victory of the day.

Sophomore speedster Kyle Larsson '14 placed first in a blazing time of 5:03, followed by Nick Cornine '13 in 5:08 and Ryan Casey '12 in 5:25. Micaela Reilly '14 was the first place girl in 6:28, just ahead of Natalie Pruitt '18 and Caroline Bernardon '18.
