Cross Country

Select Team:

Overview

At Bement, cross country is a co-ed sport, with runners training together and supporting each other on their mutual quest to get stronger and faster. The sport of cross country presents a unique opportunity for young people to gain a deeper understanding of their true limits, as thoughtful, consistent training opens the door to new understandings of what is possible. Bement's coaches pride themselves on inspiring their athletes to see the metaphorical power of distance running, as runners learn that they can employ the same dedication to self-improvement that characterizes their training time to all facets of their lives.

Coaches

  • Belcher davidDavid Belcher
    Head Coach
    Dave Belcher joined the Bement faculty in 1990 out of seminary as the dean of boarding and a history teacher, and he has remained here in one or the other of those roles - or both - ever since. His passion for historical study is rivaled only by his passions for running and children, not necessarily in that order. Bement has provided him the opportunity to teach, coach, and help children grow into amazing adults for over a quarter century, and he has no plans to do anything else for as long as he can keep up with them!
  • Benson danDan Bensen
    Assistant Coach
    Dan Bensen has been involved with Bement for almost as long as he can remember, having grown up in Bement House and attended school at Bement for six years prior to becoming a math teacher and dorm parent in 2013. He enjoys applying a thorough, scientific approach to all aspects of life, with a particular focus on baking and all manner of sports and outdoor activities. An accomplished endurance athlete, Mr. Bensen has won multiple triathlons in addition to being a category 2 road bike racer, and when he is off duty, he is usually found biking or skiing throughout the hills of New England with his wife Rachel.
