Fall Weekend 2023: a Success for PDS Athletics

Princeton Day School’s Fall Weekend is a longstanding tradition celebrated year after year among PDS students, parents, and alumni. Continuing this legacy, attendees looked forward to the annual fun run, tailgate, and athletic events that took place this year on October 15 and 16.

Though, in past years, all athletic teams played the same school for their games on fall weekend, this year was a bit different due to scheduling complications. According to Katie Fay, the athletic director at PDS, “since we joined a new league, we were not able to get one school to play against all of our teams on the same day.” Because of this, boys soccer, girls soccer, tennis, volleyball, and field hockey all played their games and matches against their respective opponents. Despite this change, Fay remained happy about this year’s events, saying “our fall teams are all having great seasons this year, and fall weekend reflected it well!” 

Student athletes and other spectators at PDS also had a great time on fall weekend. Sophia Zhou, a junior at PDS and a member of the varsity girls soccer team, says “I was really happy to play and watch games,” she adds “I think  [fall weekend] was a great chance to see what our teams have to offer.” She notes that events like fall weekend allow her to see friends in their “athletic element,” a side she would not otherwise see them involved in.

Similarly, Amanda Chen, a senior at PDS and a member of the girls varsity volleyball team, says “I really like seeing everyone together and involved in supporting our teams.” Chen appreciates the sense of community fall weekend provides among students, faculty, and other attendees; “it really brings us together,” she adds.

With the success and hard work of Princeton Day School’s sports teams, it looks like this year’s fall weekend was a great success, reflected in the event’s high attendance and support from the school’s parents, faculty, and students. Though this year’s fall weekend wavered a bit from tradition, it seems that, with the help of dedicated faculty, staff, and students, it stayed true to its legacy.
