Coaches’ Bios

JDJennifer Doughty, Girls Program Leader

Coach Doughty, who co-founded the Runnin Rebels and runs the Girls Program, also serves as Head Coach of the Girls Varsity team at Greens Farms Academy, where she has served for the last several years. She has earned a reputation for developing players and instilling a winning tradition built on hard work, teamwork, dedication, defensive tenacity and opportunistic offense. She has successfully developed a wide range of talent, from players who are being recruited by elite Division 1 schools, to nurturing the talent of gifted athletes who are relatively new to the hardwood. In fact, she has coached four players who played at the D-1 level, including the Big East.

Focusing on a fast-paced tempo, the GFA dragons like to pressure defense and let their defense be their offense. This style of play has allowed the Lady Dragons to finish with wins over FAA opponents King, Hopkins, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Greenwich Academy and Holy Child, in addition to victories over NEPSAC opponents Cheshire Academy, The Harvey School, Chase Collegiate, Millbrook and The Gunnery.
