Hall of Fame Inductees - Class of 2012


  Colleen L. Lacey
1999 - Soccer, Basketball & Outdoor Track


As a freshman, Colleen was a three-sport athlete. She was a member of the varsity team in soccer, basketball, and outdoor track, garnering 12 varsity letters. At the end of her freshman year, she was bestowed the Ruth Timpone Award for outstanding freshman female athlete.

Her first love was soccer where she was named a Captain her senior year. Colleen continually worked on her soccer skills to improve both herself and the team. In a game against Watertown, she scored two unassisted goals on corner kicks. She was named Outstanding Offensive Player three years and MVP as a senior. She still holds the girls all-time scoring record in soccer with over 25 goals and was named a Middlesex League All Star her senior year.

Colleen transferred her scoring talents from the soccer field to the basketball court where she was a four-year starter. Her forte was the three-point shot. As a junior, she beat out Woburn’s all-time leading scorer to win the Middlesex League three-point shooting contest. She was named a Captain her senior year and voted a Middlesex League All Star. Her coach, Deb Deacon, said that, “Colleen was an incredible leader, both on and off the court.”

Colleen’s outdoor track career began by running the mile. As a junior, she was a member of the 4 x 1600 relay team that still holds the record at Stoneham High with a time of 22:51:3. Working her way through Stoneham’s Little League Baseball and Senior Girls Softball programs, Colleen developed a strong throwing arm which brought her to the javelin, where she was named a Middlesex League All Star as a senior. Colleen was a member of the 1999 State Champion Class C Track Team. Her senior class voted her Most Athletic Female.

While at Stoneham High School, Colleen also coached Stoneham Youth Basketball for three years. During her tenure as a coach, she led her girls to a Town Championship. Attaining this championship was a most rewarding experience for Colleen as she was able to bring her athletic abilities and leadership skills to another generation of athletes who were able to achieve success. Over these three years, the girls looked up to Colleen and attended many of her high school games.
Colleen attended Colby College where she was a member of the varsity soccer and outdoor track teams. An ACL tear resulted in Colleen giving up soccer and track her senior year.

After Colby College, Colleen graduated Tulane University’s School of Law in New Orleans and is currently a practicing attorney in Washington, D.C., where she makes her home.
