For the second consecutive year, the Varsity Field Hockey Team advanced to the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Class C Field Hockey Championships. As the #6 seed, Gunn took on #3 New Hampton School in the first round of the tournament on November 16 at St. Mark’s School in Southborough, Massachusetts.

“This is an outstanding honor for the girls and we couldn't be more proud of the team!” said Head Coach and Dean of Students Ashley LeBlanc and Assistant Coach and Director of Studies Amy Paulekas. “This week was an exciting week for Gunn Field Hockey with two overtime victories — the first against Choate on November 9, and then against Canterbury, our biggest rival, November 12, to conclude 'Canterbury Day.' Both wins solidified our position in the postseason tournament.”

Varsity Field Hockey ended its regular season with a record of 12-5-1. The team fought hard but was defeated by New Hampton in the first round of the tournament, 5-0.

The coaches thanked faculty, students, and especially parents for all of their support during the season. “It has been an absolute pleasure coaching the team this year. The girls have a lot to be proud of!” they said.
