  Danielle Fuligni
1988 - X-Country, Indoor Track, Baseball


Danielle Fuligni was one of the best female track athletes ever to wear the Spartan Blue and White. 

She and Hall of Fame member Kristen Seabury formed an amazing 1-2 tandem for the Spartans in the mid-1980’s.   Both athletes broke records and captured state titles while dominating all running seasons in the fields of cross-country, indoor track and spring track.  The era turned out to be one of several golden eras for the girls’ track program at Stoneham High but never again have the Lady Spartans been so utterly dominant.

Fuligni was a natural runner and fierce competitor as an athlete.  She distinguished herself in each of the seasons she participated in track at Stoneham High.  She led the Spartans to three consecutive Middlesex League titles during the spring season. 

Similarly, the SHS track team did not lose a single meet during the winter season for two consecutive years with Fuligni and Seabury dominating first place. Danielle typically raced in the 600 and 1000 races throughout her four seasons during the winter and did not lose a single race during her junior and senior seasons.  Fuligni tied the state meet record at the Class C Championships with a 2:37.6 in the 1000 during her final indoor track season and again she could not be beaten in league play. 

Four years of running excellence were properly rewarded with a Boston Globe All-Scholastic selection during her final indoor track season.  Fuligni capped her outstanding high school athletic career with an SHS Blanket Award given to the school’s best female athlete. Danielle practiced excellence both on and off the track and was accepted early decision at Harvard University after an equally impressive academic career at Stoneham High School. 

Danielle currently works for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and resides in Arlington, VA. with her husband Ben and two daughters Maggie and Elizabeth.
