  Rachel Fabiano (Reis)
1988 - Volley Ball, Basket Ball, Outdoor Track


n the late 1980’s, the Stoneham High School volleyball team knew what they needed for a successful program. The team needed a leader and Rachel Fabiano became that person. 

Rachel was described as a great example of a patient leader who not only gave the team the support and strength they required but was a volleyball phenomenon.  Fabiano, the top middle attacker, who was one of the hardest hitters in the league could pound the ball with a high velocity serve. 

An average week for Rachel included 10 kills along with 8 aces.  Fabiano’s serve percentage was an amazing 93.2%. With this new team dynamic, Rachel and the volleyball team began the climb to the top. Stoneham’s 2-0 win stunned the North Reading team who was dueling against Stoneham for the number one spot. 

Under Fabiano’s leadership, the momentum continued and the volleyball team produced three league championships including two state final runner-up titles.  In her senior year the Middlesex League coaches named her the league’s Most Valuable Player. The accolades continued for Rachel with a league All Star credit and being named to the North Sectional All Tournament team.  She was also awarded Globe All Scholastic honors.    

Rachel transitioned into basketball competing for two seasons, then into softball playing all four years of high school.  As a senior, Rachel was elected co-captain and continued her outstanding performance on the diamond. Rachel was named a Middlesex League All Star two years in a row along with a second Globe All Scholastic honor. This was no small feat considering Rachel suffered a broken ankle in the championship game against Reading.

Years after graduating from Stoneham High, Rachel returned to Stoneham and coached many girls’ programs including high school volleyball and middle school basketball.

Rachel currently resides in Stoneham with her husband Perry Reis and their children Victoria and Paul.
