After Haverford, Coach Johansmeyer joined Amherst College and their Mens’ program, helping to bring Amherst to 2 NESCAC tournament appearances. Alongside his coaching duties, Coach Johansmeyer was tasked with recruiting student-athletes of the highest academic and athletic excellence to these institutions. He traveled the country searching for the student-athletes that raised the standard of the academic and athletic levels of both institutions.

After leaving the college coaching realm. Coach Johansmeyer spent the last four years in the admission office of Northfield Mount Hermon. In those four years, he came to a great appreciation for independent school life.

English Teacher
B.A. Colby College
Prep Alpine Ski Coach
Boys’ Junior Varsity Lacrosse Head Coach


Mr. Ben Stonebraker has been steeped in New England independent school tradition. He was born and raised at Hebron Academy where his father chaired the English Department and his mother was Librarian in Chief. Ben attended Holderness School before matriculating at Colby College where he majored in English and Poetry. After graduating, he pursued his passion for the out-of-doors in the vast expanse of Western Montana. His love of skiing, white water, and the mountains served him well as a ski coach and kayaking instructor. Aspen, Colorado was a logical next step for Mr. Stonebraker. During all his years in the West, he never lost sight of his roots in Maine or his desire to return to them. In the summers he migrated to the shores of Moose Pond to continue as the Counselor Training Director at Camp Winona. When a position in Gould’s English Department became available, Mr. Stonebraker rushed for the opportunity to continue the Stonebraker legacy of instilling a love of literature and wilderness and the minds of the youth.
