Bruins on Brooms, Belmont’s Quidditch club, has been recognized as a Division II Team by the International Quidditch Association (IQA). Next year, the group will have a fully-scheduled regular season within its conference which guarantees the players at least nine games. This year, due to scheduling problems, the team was only able to hold four official matches, which they were responsible for coordinating on their own. Next semester will mark the first time the IQA has put together an international conference-based regular schedule.
This year, the team was invited to participate in the Quidditch World Cup as a rookie team. The tournament took place on April 19 and 20 in Kissimmee, Florida. Unfortunately, due to financial restrictions, the team was unable to make the tournament. However, they are hopeful that next year they will be able to qualify through the regular season, as they will lose their rookie status.
