Melissa Schofield-Bussey


 AB Hall of Fame Coach Bob Asquith(ab) considered Missy Schofield to be the lynch-pin of his dynastic teams of the early to mid '90's. Missy garnered individual honors by winning over 100 races in her AB career, as well as swimming in 16 State and sectional Races. Missy was a rare four years Boston Globe All-Scholastic as well as being a four year Lowell Sun All Star and 1994 Swimmer of The Year. Missy was the 1994 Team Captain and swam on two State Championship relay teams while winning the prestigious team "Dolphin Award" her senior year. What is most important to Missy, was being an integral cog in four straight sectional and Massachusetts State Championships.

Missy took her talents to James Madison University where she was a four year member of The Dukes Women's Swim Team. Missy was ranked top ten in 500, 1000 and 1600 freestyle record books. More importantly, the leadership qualities that Missy exhibited at AB shown carried over to JMU when Missy was awarded the 1998 and 1999 GTE Athletic Academic Award as well as the CAA Scholar Athlete award in those same years.

Missy received her Master Degree in Education from Lesley College in 2005 and is currently teaching second grade in the Lawrence Public School System. Missy is also an assistant coach for the Patriot Swim Club. You can take the pool out of the girl but never take the girl- out-of-the-pool.

Missy and her husband Allan and their three children, Jack, Brooke and Katelyn reside in Shirley, MA. Missy's most memorable moment at AB was the State Championship Victory at Wellesley College. The meet came down to the last event, the 400 freestyle relay. With everyone screaming and cheering, the AB Girls do what champions do, they won. Sweet, sublime, victory.
