Coach Charlie Adams, who has coached Stone Ridge girls in Varsity softball and JV baseball for 16 years, is retiring this season. He has been a fixture on the field and court, teaching and guiding our Gators. The softball team made it to the ISL championship game on May 10, and they came pretty close to giving Coach Adams a perfect sendoff. Read more from The Gazette.

Coach Adams was born in New Orleans and went to a Jesuit high school where he lettered in 4 sports: football, basketball, baseball and track. He went on to play above the high school level in baseball. At 19 he wanted a change, so Coach Adams joined the army and volunteered for Vietnam. He is a decorated Vietnam veteran. While in the army Coach Adams was a boxing lightweight champion. He got into coaching his 2 sons 37 years ago and never stopped. Over the years, Coach Adams has held many baseball and softball camps and clinics for young children. He enjoys running and is ranked very high as a masters runner in the Mid-Atlantic states. Coach Adams has worked for 45 years as a supervisory survey statistician for the CDC.

Coach Adams says “I love coaching and teaching. I started coaching at Stone Ridge 16 years ago and I love everything about the school. I look forward to coming on campus everyday.”

We thank Coach Adams for his commitment to all our Gators over the years. Coach Adams is retiring to New Orleans, where it all began.

The Grade 7 and 8 physical education classes went to Blue Mash Golf Course on May 13. The trip was the culmination of their three week class golf unit. The girls learned putting, pitching, chipping, and worked on full stroke swings with both irons and woods. The morning drilling and instruction was topped off by a enjoyable scramble on the beautiful Blue Mash Golf Course.

Varsity lacrosse made it to the AA semi-finals game. Visitation came up with the win. The team finished 3rd out of 16 teams in the ISL and simply had an amazing year.

Varsity softball played #1 seeded Episcopal and lost in the A Championship. The team displayed camaraderie and a real joy for the game all year long.  

Varsity track & field had a strong championship with several milestones and broken school records. They finished 8th out of 16 teams, an improvement of 3 places over last season.

Congratulations to our Gators for a fantastic spring season of sports. Thanks to the parents and our fans for all the support provided to our student-athletes.
