Irene Kazokas Bry
Another cornerstone in the foundation of Acton Boxboro's wildy successful girls athletic program, Irene was a prodigy of the legendary coach Isadore Stearns. Irene hit that rare athletic trifecta: elected by her peers as a Captain in three sports. This woman for all seasons particpated at the varsity level for all four years in three sports, earning an impressive twelve varsity letters. Under Irene's leadership and behind her athletic prowess, her teams won no less than eight league championships, including four straight in basketball. Irene shattered the magical one thousand point plateau in basketball, a feat even more impressive in the era of six person hoop.
Irene's competitive nature and relentless efforts allowed the Acton High School Girls teams to be the scourge of the Wachusett League. Irene attended Simmons College. She is the mother of five children, Laura, Frank, Lisa, Thomas and William. She owned and operated Stow Sand and Gravel until 1979. Irene has a real passion for travel and a penchant for real estate resales. She is presently preparing a book on real estate for publication. Athletics at Acton helped Irene discover, "that she was in control of her own destinies."
