Despite the soggy weather, rain couldn’t dampen the Crimson spirit on Saturday, September 23 as Morristown Beard School celebrated Homecoming and Reunion. An enthusiastic crowd cheered on the Crimson football team as MBS defeated Newark Academy, 33-7.
The afternoon provided a great opportunity for folks to reunite with old friends and classmates, chat with Head of School Liz Morrison, and watch the Morristown Beard football team compete. Alumni gathered in the “MBS Skybox” in Wilkie Hall to enjoy food and drink with a warm and dry view of the game.
Senior Marcello Laracca ’24 led the way for the Crimson in the Homecoming game, amassing a total of 350 yards and five touchdowns on 23 carries. Sophomore Oscar Speranza ‘26 added 58 yards on nine carries for MBS.
Although the 31st running of The Kirby Mile couldn’t be held during the Homecoming festivities due to the weather, it has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 14 during halftime of the MBS football game against Pingry. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
