Pursuit of Excellence

Pursuit of excellence and sportsmanship are hallmarks of the Gann Athletics program. Gann Academy offers numerous Varsity and JV sports competing in the NEPSAC (New England Preparatory School Athletic Council) as well as variety of recreational athletic offerings. The girls compete in the IGC (Independent Girls Conference) and the boys compete in the MBIL (Mass Bay Independent League). All sports emphasize competing with integrity and effort and students collaborate with others and to be their best selves on the field and off. Gann has won 43 championships in its 21 years of existence, including five championships in each of the past two years.

  • Gann Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball Clinch League Championships

    February 28, 2017
    “The environment at the championship games was electric,” recalls Director of Athletics Pam Roecker. “One of the boys' game highlights was senior Noah Klar hitting a three-point shot at the buzzer – a great spark going into half-time! And the girls played arguably their best all-around game of the season.”

    Fresh off its victory, the girls team was honored to be selected to compete in its fifth consecutive NEPSAC (New England Preparatory School Athletic Council) tournament game on March 1. It was a history-making evening as Gann hosted a quarterfinal game for the first time. The Red Heifers ultimately fell to a scrappy Heritage Christian squad by a score of 29-25, finishing the season with a 14-5 overall record.
