Gunnery’s fall athletic award winners and all-stars were honored on November 15, 2011 in Virginia Hamilton Solley Hall.  As teams gathered with their coaches over lunch, Athletic Director Jon Russillo addressed the community, thanking the players, captains, coaches, maintenance crew, housekeeping and dining hall staff for making the most of a challenging season.  As was the case for many schools in New England, rain and flooding impacted games and races throughout the fall and Storm Alfred kept all of Gunnery’s teams off the fields for over a week in early November  Even so, the students kept their spirits up and Mr. Russillo commended them for their tenacity and positive attitude throughout the season.  Special recognition goes to Varsity Girls’ Soccer who made the league playoffs for the second year in a row.  Seeded 7th, Gunnery lost to #2 seed Chase Collegiate School in a very close game that went into double overtime and finally ended in a shootout (final score 3-1).

He then went on to announce the fall all stars.  The New England Prep School Athletic Conference named Krista Lamoreaux ’13 of Avon, CT and Katlyn Paiva ’13 of Rehoboth, MA to the Girls’ Field Hockey Division C All Star Team.  Named to the NEPSWSA Girls’ Soccer All Star Team were Darby MacKay ’12 of Brookfield, CT and Jocelyn Mongillo ’14 of Shelton, CT.  The coaches of the WNEPSSA (Western New England Prep School Soccer Association) Boys’ Soccer League named Benjamin Hjalmarsson ’12 of Lidingö, Sweden to the All Star Team.
