Class of 1981
A three-sport athlete who earned eight varsity letters and captained the soccer, basketball and tennis teams as a senior. Tracy Brooks Poff was a member of five Dual Country League and two state championship teams.
Poff was a three-year member of coach David Castelline's great soccer teams, winning the state championships her junior and senior years. As a senior, Poff co-captained the Patriots to a 14-2- 1 record, including a perfect 12-0 league mark and went to the semifinals of the state tournament. A DCL all-star, Poff was also a Middlesex News All-Scholastic and team "most dedicated" after leading the team in rebounding and finishing second in scoring.
Spring found Poff on the tennis courts, where she was a two-year letterwinner and co-captained as a senior for the Patriots.
Following graduation in 1981, Poff attended the University of Rhode Island for one year, playing varsity soccer before transferring to Boston College as a sophomore. Poff lettered three years for the Eagles, playing alongside fellow CCHS graduates Karyn Hesse Copland and Sheila Watts, and was named an All-American following her senior year.
"As memorable as the DCL and state championships are, my most cherished recollection of my years at CCHS are the great friends I made," says Poff. "Playing alongside such great people was a truly special honor which I remember with pride. Coaches like Dave Castelline and Dick DiMare were great people who taught us many lessons which have served me well over the years. My high school athletic experience was truly wonderful."
A resident of Tampa, Florida, Tracy is employed by Reebok as a National Account Manager. She and husband Jim are proud parents of son Jordan, who was born earlier this year.
