Anne Culkins Windhol

Class of 1971

Anne was a great all around CCHS athlete, known for her quiet competence and leadership-through-performance ethic. She earned twelve varsity letters, one in every season freshman through senior year. She was voted Most Valuable Player by her basketball and softball teammates as a Junior, and MVP in all three sports as a Senior.

She remembers the bitter rivalry with Lexington in all sports, particularly a tough 3 point loss in the Middlesex League basketball title game. Ironically, she later went on to room in college with two of her Lexington rivals. She also has fond memories of her only high school coaches, Miss Clark and Kay Russo, and of then Athletic Director John O'Connell standing on the hill watching over his teams.

In softball, Anne's speed and pinpoint control made her the most feared pitcher in the league. She never got the no hitter, but came close with two one hit games. After graduating from CCHS in 1971, she took her talents to Boston State where she was voted MVP of the basketball team three out of four years and MVP of the Softball team four out of four years.

After Boston State she began a teaching career and has been active in youth coaching. She has run for the Greater Lowell Track Club, played fast pitch softball, and carries a 10 handicap as 1991 & 1992 Women's Golf Champion at the Groton Country Club. Anne lives in Westford with her husband Al and their two sons Brian (12) and Matthew (10).
