Lacrosse Gains Experience in First Playoff Appearance
The Gateway Gators took the field as a playoff team for the first time in school history against St Stephen's on April 26th.† Though the team lost by a final score of 18-7, the respect earned by the Gators was considerable.† Entering the 2017/2018 season the team loses only one player to graduation and adds huge numbers from the Middle School program (whose record presently stands at 4 - 2). The team will see their numbers more than double for the summer and fall tournaments.† The future is very exciting indeed for Gateway lacrosse for both players and fans alike.

2+2 = Excellence
Gateway's 2nd and 3rd grade Math Pentathlon students did a fabulous job of representing Gateway at the Division II Math Pentathlon Tournament on April 8th! Back in September, these 14 students began meeting and practicing weekly. They learned how to play five challenging games that required using spatial and logical reasoning as well as the ability to do quick calculations.
There is only one tournament a year, so they were all very excited about their big day. Each of them won at least one game and three of our students earned Silver Medals.
