Cathy McGuirk finished her career as Branford’s head coach with a record of 558-129-66-12, owning the most victories for any coach in the history of Connecticut high school field hockey. The Hornets won the Class M state championship 10 times during her tenure, most recently in 2005. Mrs. Cathy McGuirk brought tenacity and honor to the Branford program during the 41-years she coached. More importantly, during her career as both a coach and teacher, Cathy held the ability to help mold and influence youngsters with the intention to help them become the best version of themselves.
Recently, Coach Cathy McGuirk was diagnosed with ALS. Our goal is to unite together to help her fight back after all of the years she fought for us. Our purpose is to do what Mrs. McGuirk loves most and get up, attack the day and be active in an effort to raise money and awareness for ALS research.
This year to keep our community safe, the Walk will occur virtually from a location of your choice on October 25! Walk your neighborhood, a local hiking trail, in your backyard—the options are endless!
