On a beautiful fall afternoon, an enthusiastic crowd turned out to celebrate Homecoming, Reunion and the Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday, October 2nd and cheer the Crimson football team to a thrilling 7-6 win over Long Island Lutheran.

The afternoon provided a great opportunity for folks to reunite with old friends and classmates, enjoy some food and drink at the tailgate events, and watch the Morristown-Beard School football team compete.  Trailing 6-0 with under a minute left in the game, senior James Marinello ’22 scored a touchdown and sophomore Ethan Roitman ’24 kicked the extra point to lead MBS to victory.

During halftime of the football game, a large group of participants turned out to run the 29th annual Kirby Mile. Junior Will Kuppenheimer ’23 won the race in a blazing fast time of 5:13 followed closely by his cross country teammate Jonas Weinmann ’23.

As part of the Homecoming and Reunion festivities, Morristown Beard School welcomed Robert “Bob” Doran ’74 and Colin Larmond, Jr. ’08 into the MBS Athletic Hall of Fame. At MBS, Bob Doran ’74 earned a total of 12 varsity letters playing on the football, basketball, baseball, and track teams. He served as captain for six varsity teams. During his sophomore year in 1972, he was the all-state quarterback for the MBS state championship team. Colin Larmond, Jr. ’08 earned 11 varsity letters (football, basketball, and track) at MBS and led the football team to its first state championship game in School history in 2007.
