Boys' soccer at Peddie Day 2019
Go Bucs…& Falcons! Blair & Peddie Share the Cup
Suzy Logan

For the second year in a row, the Bucs and Falcons tied and will share the Kelley-Potter Cup until the two teams meet again in Blairstown in November 2020. As the sun set over the football field in Hightstown, Head of School Chris Fortunato and Peddie’s Headmaster Peter Quinn shook hands on the football field’s 50-yard line and congratulated all athletes on a job well done. The final score of the day’s competitions was 5-3-5 and, since Peddie had the home advantage, the Falcons will keep the Cup for six months before turning it over to Blair.

Athletic Director Paul Clavel ’88 commended all Blair athletes for their extraordinary heart, grit and sportsmanship, and said he hopes everyone is proud of their performances over the course of a very successful fall 2019 season.

"Of course, we go into every Peddie Day excited to bring the Cup home, but I couldn’t be prouder of the effort our teams put forth,” he said. It was a beautiful fall day in Hightstown, and Blair fans came out in force to cheer for the Bucs, enjoying one another’s company at games and matches across campus and in the hospitality tent for alumni and parents.
