Bement's lacrosse team has a competitive and active game schedule. First year players learn the sport and challenge their athleticism. Returning players demonstrate leadership while working to develop positional skills and strategies to be successful. We participate in two to three competitions per week with other surrounding JV level teams from Eaglebrook School, Northfield Mount Hermon, Williston Northampton, Amherst Middle School, and many others. In mid May, the Bement lacrosse team participates at a junior tournament held at the Pine Cobble School in beautiful Williamstown, Massachusetts. In the 2016 season, Bement came in first place overall at the tournament out of a competitive six team roster from the New England area.
Jeff Cady joins Bement as the eighth grade English teacher, an eighth grade advisor, a dorm parent, and a lacrosse and basketball coach. Mr. Cady's love for independent schools was shaped as a four-year boarding student at Westminster School (CT). After college, Mr. Cady taught and coached at the Dunn School (CA), Kinkaid School (TX), and Gonzaga (DC). His path veered from education over the next fifteen years as a management consultant, startup director, and U.S. diplomat. He is thrilled to be back in the classroom and bring his experience to help students navigate challenges, grow, and discover their unique and authentic voices. Outside of teaching, Mr. Cady can be found spending time with his wife and two daughters, hopefully outdoors and in the wilderness.
