  • Soccer - Boys JV

    2017 - 2018

    The Soccer Program at The Gunnery is focused on developing young athletes into competitive soccer players by the time they reach the varsity level.  The program stresses the technical, tactical, and physical demands of the game as it is played at the college stage.  By exposing young athletes to these demands early on in the program, the player will find himself better prepared to play at a higher level of soccer. 

    All practice sessions are geared to improve the player’s foot-skills, placing emphasis on developing the quality of the player’s first touch on the ball.  At the varsity level, higher demands are expected physically and technically from the players.  Players learn to perform under pressure and at game speed.  A variety of team formations are introduced and explained in order to provide the player with a detailed understanding of the tactics of the game.   

    A required, preseason training program is also an important element to the development of our players. We have specific conditioning and technical exercises that improve the player’s core strength, develop agility, and improve both aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels.

    The coaching staff’s objective is to assist hardworking, student athletes in developing into high quality soccer players.  In addition, the overall improvement of the athlete’s physical fitness and coordination will prepare the athlete to be competitive in a variety of sports here at The Gunnery.

  • Back to Back proves to be too much.

    Playing short-handed and on little rest, the Highlanders struggled from the get-go against the Winged Beavers in Avon, CT. Peter Tscheleshev potted his second goal of the season on an indirect kick in the first half to make it 3-1, but unfortunately, that was all the team could muster in eighty minutes. The team is back in action on Wednesday against Trinity Pawling.

  • Highlanders Earn First Win of the Season

    After a quick jaunt over to Rumsey Hall, the Highlanders looked ready to go from the opening kick. Short passes and good positioning led to an early corner for The Gunnery, and Brett Matthews was able to connect with a header on Peter Tcheleshev's take, to put the Highlanders up 1-0. It marked the first goal of the season for the JV squad, but certainly not the last. Minutes later Logan White would blast one past the Rumsey keeper however, the youngsters from the junior boarding school down the road would not go quietly. They responded with two quick goals of their own to tie the score. As the seconds ticked toward the end of the first, Logan White sent a streaking Peter Tscheleshev in on goal alone (with a nice through ball). Tscheleshev clinically finished off the chance, putting the Highlanders up one to end the first. 

    The second would be a defensive stalemate for much of the forty minutes, thanks to the back line play of Mac Leonard, Ryan Trom, Brett Matthews, and Will Hambley. Hambley in particular, made a couple of tremendous reaction saves, while guarding the back-post on Rumsey corners late in the half. With less then fifteen to play, The Gunnery built a two goal cushion, when the Rumsey keeper lost a Logan White chip shot in the sun. Cole Paredes earned the win in goal in his first start of the season.

  • Hard work leads to positive result.

    Thanks to a determined defensive effort the JV Highlanders earned their first result of the season, a 0-0 draw with Millbrook. The Gunnery controlled play for much of the match, and generated multiple quality scoring chances. Unfortunately, no one wearing red was able to put one past the Millbrook keeper. The back line was anchored by Mac Leonard and Ryan Trom up the middle, and Jacob Bruck and Nick O'Brien defended the wings with diligence and determination. Sawyer Gorman finished the game with a clean sheet, and made a few timely saves to preserve the tie.

  • Tough Test in Opener

    The JV Highlanders worked hard throughout the game against a highly skilled Indian Mountain School. The offense generated some good scoring chances, and the defense was organized yet aggressive for much of the contest. IMS had a number of players capable of finishing their chances, which they did on multiple occasions! The JV highlanders can be proud of their effort. They are back in action this Wednesday.

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.
