Gunnery runs at Westover!

Morgen Fisher
On October 18th, Gunnery girls traveled to Westover to run against the Westover, Cheshire, and Ethel Walker girls teams for a total field of 43 runners!   Gianna Russillo took first place with a time of 20:57 mins and leading the girls to victory over both Cheshire and Ethel Walker though falling short of defeating Westover’s team of strong runners.  Ksenia Korobov was Gunnery’s second runner, finishing with a time of 24:13 in her first race back after rehabing an injury.   Margaux Barthelemy (24:49), Aris Wang (25:13), Jean Fang (25:50), Jasmine Tien (25:52), Sophie McAndrew (27:15), Katie Nemergut (27:44), Anne Beatty (28:34), and Bonnie Bao (33:01) all worked to make Gunnery proud and contributed in both numbers and school spirit to the team’s two way victory.   Well done girls!  Thank you for hosting, Westover!!

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.
