Neubauerova ’18 to play in IIHF U18 Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship
Gunnery sophomore and two-year member of the Varsity Girls’ Hockey team, Noemi “Nemo” Neubauerova has been selected to play for the Czech Republic National U-18 Women’s Ice Hockey Team, which will compete at the 2016 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship from Jan. 8-15 in St. Catherines, Canada.
Ms. Neubauerova, who competed in the U-18 IIHF’s last season, was named Team MVP for the Czech Republic team that won the gold last month in the Wickenheiser World Female Hockey Festival that was played in Calgary.
“I am very proud to represent my family, my country, and The Gunnery at the U-18 World Championships. I know this experience will help me grow as a person, student, and hockey player,” said Noemi.
Her Gunnery coach, Kiernan Joyce, added “This is a tremendous opportunity for Nemo to showcase her abilities on a big stage. We're so proud of Nemo - and all our student-athletes, for their continued success in and out of the classroom. It's a great honor for her and The Gunnery.”

Founded in 1850 by abolitionist, educator, and outdoorsman Frederick Gunn, The Gunnery is a coeducational college preparatory boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12/post-graduate. Dedicated teacher-mentor-coaches challenge students to reach their full potential in a home-like setting where character and citizenship are valued as much as intellect and achievement. Individualized attention and high expectations help young learners develop not only the skills and confidence they will need in college, but also the moral compass and love of learning that will serve them well in life. The school attracts ambitious, academically curious students who will both shine as unique individuals and thrive as contributing members of a deeply connected community. By the time they graduate, Gunnery students have become well rounded, grounded young adults with a sharpened sense of who they are and who they want to become.
