Jean DePlacido column: Family affair at next week's Peabody Hall of Fame induction ceremony


The Highlanders’ leading scorer was freshman Charlotte Esty from Ipswich.

Coach Dushawne “Doc” Simpson isn’t the only member of his family having a great season; his wife Kristin coaches the Division 1 North champion Beverly High girls team.

Zerfoss and Esty play for Doc Simpson at Aztec along with three members of the Panthers: 50-goal scorer Caitlin Harty, Casey Cook and Kristen O’Connor.


The Rachael Mackey Scholarship Fund got a big boost from an event at Scoreboard in Woburn last week. New England Patriots starting defenders Kyle Arrington and Kyle Love, along with their NFL Player Agent Sean Stellato, hosted the event. Unfortunately, Mackey lost her courageous battle with a brain tumor a few days earlier.

Money raised helped fund the scholarship fund which will be given to a Danvers High student annually.
