A Spring in the Step
As Term 2 sports at Brentwood came to an end, the final term of sport sprung into action quite smoothly. Indoor sports were replaced with outdoor sports as students made the transition from a cool winter to a warm spring. Everybody is hopeful that the school will be able to enjoy a full term of spring sport where, unfortunately, last year it was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the offerings in the spring are Basketball, Climbing, Cross Country, Cross Training, Dynamic Yoga, Learn to Row, Outdoor Pursuits, Rugby, Squash, Tennis, and Varsity Rowing. Soccer and Weight Training are also available for the girls.
While many sports are offered throughout the school year, each only has one where it is competitive. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 all of those seasons have been cancelled. Everyone is hoping that sports at Brentwood will return to normal by the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
Director of Athletics, Mr Gage, says “Term three sport is always such an exciting time of year as our outdoor spaces are all so alive with activity. Even with Covid restrictions in place, the positive energy that comes from running around outside in the sunshine is contagious and makes for a very happy campus.” Multi sport athlete Ifeanyi A, Whittall ‘21 says “I love how Brentwood conducts the sports program which allows me to enjoy each of my three favorite sports throughout the school year while also seeing my fellow students doing what they love.”
The athletic portion of Brentwood’s education has looked much different this year but that has not stopped the school community from enjoying two successful terms of physical activity. Fingers are crossed that the final term runs just as smoothly as the last couple and that the coronavirus situation continues to improve!
