On a spirited day of school pride, the Peddie football team defeated Blair 41-7 to clinch a tie in the Kelley-Potter Cup standings. The Falcons under head coach Chris Malleo celebrated its first undefeated season since 1988 and also clinched outright the Mid-Atlantic Prep League title.

Against the backdrop of a crisp, blue sky on Maurice P. Shuman Field, Head of School Christopher Fortunato and host Head of School Peter Quinn agreed to share the Cup for the second year in a row until the games return to Blairstown next November.

Each school won five, lost five with boys' Thirds soccer, girls' JV and varsity soccer teams all battling to draws.

The Falcons enjoy a 19-8 advantage in the series dating back to 1988. This year marks the fifth tie.

Intense competition. Nail-biting finishes. Hundreds of cheering students.

This is Peddie-Blair Day. For everyone who has worn the blue and gold, whether an athlete or not, Peddie-Blair Day is a beloved tradition. And Peddie-Blair Week is likely to be one of the most memorable weeks of any Falcon's life.

Built upon the oldest high school football rivalry in the state, Peddie-Blair Day is the culmination of our fall sports season. A full day of athletic competition against friendly rival Blair Academy, every game counts equally, and the Kelley-Potter Cup is awarded to the school with the greatest number of wins. Often, the awarding of the cup comes down to the final results of the football pairing, but it can (and has) come down to the wire as hundreds of fans crowd in to watch the back-and-forth action of a JV girls tennis doubles match.

Peddie-Blair Day leaves Peddie students with lifelong memories hard-fought wins and losses, but also sportsmanship, school spirit and friendship. As our students become part of the tradition, the tradition becomes a part of them.
