  • Cross Country - Boys Varsity

    2018 - 2019

    Cross country became a varsity sport at The Gunnery in the early 1960s.  Highlights of the program’s history have been New England divisional championships in 1974 and 1986, and numerous male and female All-New England runners headed by Pat O’Neil, who finished first in the championships in 1973 and 1974.  The yearly schedule includes a combination of six dual, tri, and quad meets.  It opens with the preseason Canterbury Invitational meet which hosts over thirty-five independent school teams from the northeast.  In mid-season the runners race in the eight-team O’Connell Invitational.  The season ends with participation in the Division IV NEPSTA Championships.  The Gunnery is lucky to be adjacent to the Steep Rock Reservation and its many fine trails and dirt roads for running.  There are also numerous roads and trails in other parts of town and the scenic 7.8 mile loop around Lake Waramaug.

  • Gunnery Boys Cap of the 2018 Season at Canterbury

    Morgen Fisher
    After racing several times throughout the season on the Canterbury course, Gunnery boys traveled to the school to once again, tackle that hill for the New England Championships. They were lead by Harry Harwood who earned 12th place overall and boasted 7 Varsity runners and 7 JV runners. Almost all saw improvement over their other Canterbury times...we look forward to seeing what our returns can do building on those successes next year! We wish John Coleman, the senior on our Varsity team, success and many happy running miles ahead of him!

    Morgen Fisher
    The Gunnery boys returned to Canterbury to try a race on a familiar course. Canterbury graciously hosted and, though Gunnery came up short, again was able to boast the #1 runner in the meet in captain, Harry Harwood with a time of 17:22. It was an incredibly cold day for racing and Harry led Danny Infante, Buckley Huffstetler, Josh Novick, Will Brodhead, John Coleman, Nate Nordine, Frank Ma, Peter Yao, Norman Fan, Sean Hall, and Nathaniel Ince in a race on the same course that kicked off the season. We look forward to returning for New Englands at the end of the term!

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.
