  • Lacrosse - Girls Varsity

    2017 - 2018

    Kate McMann has been the head coach of The Gunnery Girls’ Lacrosse team since 2011. The program competes as a Class B team in the WWNEPSLA. Our opponents include Canterbury School, Williston Northampton, Millbrook, Westover and Berkshire, to name a few. Practices and games focus on developing the basic fundamentals while instilling a college-style approach to fitness and strategy in all facets of the game. “Doing the little things well”, such as ground balls, draw controls, caused turnovers, and off-ball movement, is our mantra and a big point of emphasis in every practice. More importantly, the coaching staff is intentional with ingraining the values of teamwork, respect, hard work and having fun in everything that we do.

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.
