MCDS Football season begins

Miami Country Day School’s campus was buzzing Friday night as the Spartans took on the Bulldogs of Bridgeprep in their home opener. In a remarkable display of school spirit, the 100+ students in attendance were clad in all white for the “white out” theme. The school achieved its highest attendance for a football game in history, setting a new benchmark for Spartan pride.

Out of the many students in attendance, Sam Weisberg, beaming with pride, said, “it was amazing to see everyone cheering for our school”. The school’s football team led by head coach Chris Polite, felt the incredible energy from the newly created student section. The game itself was a nail-biter, as the final score resulted in the Bulldogs winning 21-20. Although the Spartans were defeated, they will take on the Bulldogs again at home on Thursday, September 14th.

The record-breaking turnout for Friday night’s game proves to many doubters that school spirit at Miami Country Day is possible. It serves as a reminder that with passion and dedication, any institution can achieve what the Spartans did on Friday night.
