There’s nothing better than working with your friends towards a common goal, and Gould’s Softball Team provides just that type of experience! The team has played in the MAISAD Championship game for five years in a row, winning in 2015 and 2017.
The team, under the guidance of Coach Stevens, plays a rigorous schedule including games with MAISAD schools as well as schools outside of MAISAD, including: Proctor, New Hampton, Tilton, Holderness, and Brewster. The team is always up for a challenge, improving skills, and having fun.
Team and teamwork are what Gould Softball is all about. To accomplish this, we do everything as a team. This includes a yearly trip to Boston College in the spring to see a Division I softball game, always a highlight of the pre-season.
“We work really hard, in this short season,” Coach Stevens says. “As soon as we can practice, we hit it hard (no pun intended).” Utilizing the Farnsworth Fieldhouse in the early season for batting, fielding, running, and agility skills.

Mr. Greene grew up in New York’s Hudson Valley. He taught at his alma mater, Virginia Commonwealth University, for 15 years, five years on the home campus and 10 years on VCU’s campus in Qatar. Mr. Greene and his family then moved to South Korea, where he taught art and design at the Cheongna Dalton School.

He has attended Documenta, Meunster Sculpture, and the Venice, Gwangju, and Singapore Biennials (to name a few). When not teaching, Mr. Greene enjoys re-discovering lost art, fishing, and baseball (though he doesn’t actually enjoy baseball…he’s a Mets fan). Mr. Greene and his wife, Jin, daughter, Clare, and son, Xavier, live on campus in the Gehring dorm.
