Kelley Carr
1988 - Volleyball,
Indoor Track & Softball


The Carr family legacy within the Stoneham High School sports scene is well-established and former volleyball, indoor track and softball star Kelley Carr was among the best. Carr’s sister Christine, father Bob and two of her uncles were all named All-Scholastic athletes during their amateur sports careers, so it was no surprise that Kelley distinguished herself in three separate sports.

Carr was a dominant volleyball player who garnered North Shore League MVP honors and a Boston Globe All-Scholastic nod during her senior campaign. She led the Lady Spartans to a league title while rating at the top in nearly every statistical category.

Carr was the captain her senior season and was a two-time North Shore League All-Star for a highly successful Lady Spartan volleyball program. Carr’s powerful serve made her an ace waiting to happen on the hardwood, and the SHS star’s sheer physical strength also made her a standout in the shot-put during the winter track season.

Carr is probably most vividly remembered, however, for her four-year stint as the catcher and leader on the Stoneham High School girls’ softball squad. The SHS backstop was a starter from the time she walked onto the SHS softball field, and earned Globe All-Scholastic honors in both her junior and senior seasons. Carr led the team in nearly every offensive category during her junior and senior campaigns – including a junior season that saw her hit .381 with a pair of home runs and 21 RBIs – while adroitly catching little sister and fellow SHS Hall of Famer Christine.

The older Carr sibling memorably caught both of Christine’s back-to-back no-hitters during their 1988 tournament run, and was a Middlesex All-Star selection in both her junior and senior seasons.

Carr played a season of softball at the University of Massachusetts following her storied three-sport career at Stoneham High. She is an accountant and resides in Lowell.
