The Exeter Department of Physical Education and Athletics has announced the addition of Kerry McBrearty to the department. In her role, McBrearty will coach with our girls soccer, girls basketball, and girls lacrosse programs while teaching in the physical education curriculum.

“We are so fortunate to add such an experienced teacher, coach, and mentor to our esteemed group,” said Director of Physical Education and Athletics Jason Baseden. “Kerry has a contagious enthusiasm for working with young students and has proven throughout her career a deep dedication to student development and community involvement.”

McBrearty has experience teaching physical education at both The Dalton School and the Rodeoph Sholom School in New York City. Most recently, McBrearty has served as the Director of the STARS Club Lacrosse program in Alexandria, Virginia. Prior to STARS, McBrearty was the head women’s lacrosse coach at NCAA Division II Bentley University for five years while also serving as an assistant for the women’s soccer program. McBrearty also had head coaching stops at Roger Williams University and Queens College.

“I am honored to have been selected as a physical education instructor for PEA,” said McBrearty. “I would like to thank Jason Baseden, as well as the entire administration for this opportunity. It is a privilege to be part of an institution with such longstanding academic and athletic traditions. I am most excited about joining a community that values every voice and is committed to the growth, well-being, and success of all students.” 

McBrearty earned both her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in physical education from Springfield College, where she was a captain of the girls lacrosse program.
