Peddie Latin teacher David “Doc” Martin makes predictions every year about the outcomes of the Blair Day competitions. Dr. Martin’s record has, allegedly, been near perfect for almost twenty years. This year’s predictions, which Dr. Martin made as of Nov. 2, are as follows:

Football:

  • Varsity: “There are a lot of players injured, so the chances are lower. It all comes down to varsity football; that is why it is the last sport of the day. However, [I’m] leaning towards them winning. No pressure.
  • JV: Already played and lost.
  • Predicted final outcome : Peddie:1- Blair:1

Tennis:

  • JV: Already won.
  • Varsity: Mr. Dubrule is confident that they will win by two or three matches.
  • Predicted final outcome: Peddie:2-Blair: 0

Field Hockey:

  • Varsity: Does not look good. Peddie lost Hun 0-1, Blair beat Hun 7-0. Doc predicts a loss for varsity
  • JV: Both teams have trouble scoring. Therefore, Martin predicts a 0-0 tie.
  • Predicted final outcome: 0-1-1

Girls Soccer:

  • Varsity: Close, as long as there are no injuries. Also a major deciding factor of the final winner of Blair Day. Close scores between both schools. However, after a lot of consideration, he has decided that varsity will win
  • JV: Has trouble scoring and not many victories. He predicts a loss.
  • Predicted final outcome: 1-1

Boys Soccer:

  • Varsity: “Has trouble scoring more than on point per game. Blair’s offense is stronger.” We have good defense, but Doc ultimately predicts that Peddie will lose.
  • JV: Not scored much lately and does not look good.
  • Freshman: Has scored around 2 goals all year. Therefore, Doc predicts a 0-0 tie.

XC:

  • Boys: Won states when Blair came in fifth. Boys will win
  • Girls: “Will participate”

Doc’s Predicted final outcome of all games: 5-6-2

Based off much consideration, facts, scores and coaches, Dr. Martin has come to the conclusion that the result of Blair Day comes down to varsity football, varsity Girls Soccer and the two ties he has predicted. But overall, it is not looking well for Peddie. Dr. Martin says that this is not the spirit we’re looking for; however, he has been making these predictions for a long time, and was only off by two matches the past two years.
