Mr. Keith Blackwell

Hello, my name is Keith Blackwell and I am the head coach of the boy’s goalball and boy’s track teams. I am also the assistant coach for the wrestling team. I have been at GAB for 6 years and my love of sports and working with students in extracurricular activities have led me to become increasingly involved with the school’s athletics over the years. Before coming to GAB, I coached baseball in the public-school system but fell in love with the sport of goalball after arriving at GAB. I grew up playing all sports but mainly focused on baseball. As an adult, I still love to stay active by running, biking, and have just started swimming in our school’s newly renovated pool. I still get very excited at the start of each sport’s season! It’s always amazing watching our students overcome challenges and succeed in the sports they work so hard at throughout the year!

Hey there! My name is Sara Lynch and I am the head coach of the girls goalball team, girls track team and the GAB cheer squad.  I have worked at GAB for almost 9 years and have loved every minute of it.  I wear a lot of hats at GAB, so I am fortunate to get to work with students of all ages, both day and residential. When I first started working at GAB, I was so intrigued by goalball, because I had never heard of it.  I instantly fell in love with watching it and helping with it.  That love for goalball, as well as my bond with our students, lead to me getting involved in all the other sports at GAB.  I am originally from Michigan, so I was used to watching sports played on ice or in snow.  I enjoy football and soccer and spending time in our newly renovated pool, both for fun and as a lifeguard.  I'm very thankful that I get to watch our students grow and excel through sports every year and I am so proud to get to coach our pretty panthers!
