As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close, and the cleats, balls, pinnies, skis, and batons are put to rest for another year, this is a great opportunity to reflect on all the athletic successes of this school year.
BFA Fairfax’s athletic participation numbers are among the highest ever, and we are providing the broadest selection of opportunities in our school’s history.
2017-18 saw our first home night soccer games, multiple fundraisers for both local and global service causes, a new football cooperative team with Lamoille Union High School, tournament basketball at Barre Auditorium, the annual Fairfax Relays and Pink Game, record increases in participation numbers for track and field and club lacrosse, the approval of Ultimate Frisbee as a new Varsity sport, training trips to Quebec and Florida, multiple Mountain Division championships and track and field podium finishes, and as of today at 4:30, the Division 3 softball semifinals at Green Mountain Union High School.
At BFA Fairfax, athletic participation is not only valued, it is viewed as a core component of the educational experience. The participation numbers serve to validate the passion held by our students, our school, and our community year after year. Congratulations on yet another successful year, Bullets! You have made us proud once again!
