This past fall, Stevenson decided to bring in three new athletic trainers for student athletes.
With a growing concern to find trainers that would meet Stevenson students’ needs, the search was meticulous and thorough in order to find suitable individuals for the upcoming seasons. At the conclusion of the extensive search, Stevenson hired three experienced trainers: Zach Dunbar, Cody Lancellotti and Brandon Gehert. All possess a background in sports.
Zach Dunbar joined the athletic training staff in the fall of 2020. Dunbar served as the head athletic trainer with Florida Premiere FC before obtaining his position at Stevenson. Dunbar graduated from The College at Brockport in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in athletic training, kinesiology. Dunbar then earned his Master of Science from The University of Florida in applied physiology and kinesiology with a concentration in athletic training.
“I chose Stevenson because I went to a D3 school for undergrad and loved working in that setting as an athletic training student, so I knew that’s the setting I wanted to end up in. I’m also originally from Buffalo, so Stevenson is a little bit closer to home,” Dunbar said. Dunbar will oversee women’s basketball, women’s lacrosse, men and women’s cross country and men and women’s tennis.
Cody Lancelotti joined the staff in the fall of 2020. Lancelotti worked at Pivot Physical Therapy and served as the head athletic trainer at Linganore High School. He graduated from King’s College in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in athletic training. He then earned his Master of Science in athletic training from West Virginia University in May of 2018.
“The transition coming to Stevenson has been outstanding. Coming back into collegiate athletics has been a goal of mine, and this was a perfect institution for me to do that,” Lancelotti said. He will oversee women’s soccer, women’s ice hockey and beach volleyball.
Brandon Gehret joined the staff in the fall of 2020. He served as an assistant athletic trainer at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) before joining the Stevenson staff. He attended Penn State University and graduated with his Bachelor of Science in athletic training in 2012. Gehret then earned his Master of Science in business administration from St. Bonaventure University.
