Congratulations to The Gunnery Girls XC team in another victory!! This time, Gunnery hosted the race at White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield and raced against Forman's XC team over the hills and through the woods! Gianna, Ksenia, Jasmine, Margaux, and Aris earned the top 5 spots for Gunnery (1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th places respectively). They were supported by Jean Fang, Clari Leonard, Rose Liu, Katie Nemergut, Yoland Wang, and Bonnie Bao. A muddy but beautiful day! Wonderful job!
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.
