During this time of increasing tension and inequality, The MacDuffie Athletics Department is reconfirming its support for inclusion and a commitment in our stand against social injustice and racism. We stand alongside our student-athletes, coaches and staff regardless of race, gender, religion, nationality or beliefs. Our MacDuffie Mustangs family is unified to demonstrate respect and equality for all. We are committed to listen and to support each other so our student-athletes can play and learn in a positive and judgement-free environment. We are determined to help make our community and society a better place for all our members.
Our after-school interscholastic athletic program is an important part of a student’s educational experience. We offer a variety of teams for both boys and girls during all three seasons. The Varsity program provides a competitive team experience where outcome and achievement are a high priority. All students are encouraged to participate, regardless of their skill level.
MacDuffie Athletics is committed to promoting the ideals of sportsmanship, respect, leadership, and integrity. Our goal is to build individual athletic ability, increase physical fitness, and help gain a sense of community.

Kevin’s life always seems to throw something new and exciting at him, and one of his greatest joys as a teacher is seeing students embrace their own experiences in life. Growing up in a rural setting helped foster Kevin’s interest in nature—gardening specifically—and his travels abroad gave him a better sense of the world. During part of his undergraduate work, Kevin studied in Normandy, France. He then returned to France after graduating for a more permanent stay in Perpignan to work as a teacher. Vive la Tramontane ! Another quick change in his life took him to Richmond, Virginia for a time, and then he arrived in Massachusetts to teach in the Berkshires. He joined MacDuffie during its first year on the new Granby campus.
Outside of the classroom, Kevin is an avid gardener—obtaining Master Gardener status during his undergrad work. He also loves a good cup of coffee and simply enjoys watching life happen.
