There’s nothing better than working with your friends towards a common goal, and Gould’s Softball Team provides just that type of experience!

In 2015, the Gould Academy Softball Team brought home the MAISAD Championship trophy after an undefeated season. The team, under the guidance of Coach Kristina Stevens, plays against teams including North Yarmouth Academy, Kents Hill School, and Hebron Academy.

“We work really hard,” Coach Stevens says. “As soon as we can practice, we do, utilizing the Farnsworth Field House for indoor drills when there is still snow on the ground. By the time we’re out on the field playing games, you can really start to see how this team comes together and supports one another through each and every game.”
