AOTI: Luca Mezzanotte ’23

Coming off of a successful Head of the Charles performance, placing 10th out of 90 boats in the Belmont Hill Four, Luca Mezzanotte ’23 has thrived as an athlete during his time at Belmont Hill. The captain of both the Alpine Skiing and Crew teams, Mezzanotte has had his share of achievements.


Looking back on his time at Belmont Hill and his most recent season, Mezzanotte recalls the team culture which he has enjoyed so much, commenting, “I love the energy on the XC team, being able to wear ridiculously short shorts with cookies on them and run around Boston with the boys is a unique experience.” He adds, “XC is interesting because it is a sport that isn’t fun at all but the people make it fun,” highlighting the people on his teams that have made Belmont Hill sports so enjoyable. Mezzanotte also expresses his gratitude to those who made his cross-country experience so successful, saying, “I want to thank the captains and coaches for keeping the team focused and working hard throughout the season.” 


Looking towards the future, Mezzanotte will spend his last two seasons at Belmont Hill leading both the Alpine Skiing team in the winter and the Crew team in the spring, after which he has committed to continue his rowing career at the Naval Academy. Though Mezzanotte does not plan to run in college, he notes that he is grateful for the experiences that he has had at Belmont Hill and that he is sure that the running will help support his rowing endeavors in the future. 


Mezzanotte’s athletic success  at Belmont Hill has been impressive, and he will unquestionably be a valuable member of the Navy Lightweight Rowing team in the future. 


The Panel thanks Luca for all the hard work he has dedicated to Belmont Hill’s athletic programs and wishes him the best of luck for the season and his athletic endeavors beyond Belmont Hill.
