WOODBURY — Nonnewaug High School has a robust sports program, but with sports come injuries. Luckily for the Chiefs, they have a skilled athletic trainer in Sean McGee on standby to help athletes prepare their bodies, treat them when they’re injured, and help them return to the field.

McGee does more at Nonnewaug than most athletes even know — and nobody knows that better than senior Sam Conti, who’s worked with McGee through two knee injuries over the past two years.
