Class of 1993
To be compared to the legendary Al Ramos as a leader is indeed high praise. Such is the comparison that Amy Hitz deserves. Another one of our rare and cherished AB three sport athletes, Amy captained both basketball and softball her senior year.
Not only did Amy excel in volleyball, softball and basketball, Amy was one of the most well rounded athletes to come out of AB. An outstanding student, she was also the drum major of our great ABRHS Marching Colobnials Band.
Amy was basketball DCL All Star her sophomore, junior, and senior years, as well as a Lowell Sun All Star. She double-doubled in points/rebounds in both her junior and senior seasons. It was not the statistics that meant anything at all to Amy, the only stats that mattered were the 2 DCL Championship Amy helped to win in 1991-1992 and 1992-1993.
In softball, the captain received the Dan Dion Leadership Award.
If you have ever witness the icy competitive Kevin Garnett stare, then you would have witnessed Amy Htz any time she was on a court or field. Amy blessed Union College with her talents where she lettered in Basketball all four years, track her sophomore and junior years, and softball her senior year. It was hoop where she shined the brightest, where she was a four- year starter playing in 93 of 94 games. She was named both captain and MVP her junior and senior years. She remains the career record holder in rebounds and the seventh all time scorer topping the magical 1000 point barrier. Her career average of 11.7 points and 10.2 rebounds include 40 double-doubles. She was named UCAA All-League Player her junior and senior years, and received the prestigious Robert M. Ridings Award at Union College in intercollegiate sports.
After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Union, Amy received her Masters in Education at Boston University. She has taught at AB since the fall of 1997, and now is a member of the Social Studies Department. From 1997 though 2006 Amy was a Varsity Assistant Basketball Coach to Cathy Gallant, a JV Coach and Varsity Assistant with Mike Bingham, and a Varsity Co-head Coach with Cathy Gallant.
Amy resides in Maynard with her husband Jeff, a standout AB hockey goalie, and her children Kate and Christopher.
Amy's most memorable moment was being part of the 1992-1993 hoop team as we won back to back DCL championships.
