This past year. during a Knights of Columbus sponsored basketball Free Throw contest for girls and boys, ages 9-14, Macey won for her age group at the St. Thomas Aquinas Recreation Hall in town. She then went on to win Town, District and Regional trophies, and took second place in the State Championships at Nichols College in Dudley, Mass.
Macey’s mom Elizabeth and dad Rob realized how much she enjoyed basketball when she asked to try out for the travel team. It was non-stop practice in the driveway with her dad and older sister Molly.
Macey also learned all the right moves from four travel basketball coaches and conscientiously studied a playbook. Mom Elizabeth says, “She’s a natural with sports and anything that she tries. She’s aggressive on the court and has earned the nickname ‘swiper’ because she’s so good at stealing the ball from other players. She’s also a good defender.”
Her dad says, “Macey had some tough competition but still came in second in the state. She continued to smile, knowing that she tried her best and she’ll be right back at it again next year trying to win the title.” During the summer, she played in the Bridgewater Youth Basketball summer Biddy League.
Besides basketball, Macey likes lacrosse (dad is her coach), as well as running, dancing, singing, making up songs and entertaining friends and family. She also loves gymnastics, boating, swimming, kayaking, and just hanging out with her family. When not involved in sports, Macey listens to ‘top 40’ music and sings songs by Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony and Meghan Trainor. She really enjoys her new role: caring for puppy Yogi Bear, adopted from the MSPCA.
Entering 5th grade at the Williams intermediate School, Macey says, “I like math because I like to solve problems, and English because I like creative writing.” She wants to be a veterinarian. Mom says, “Macey has the right kind of caring and loving personality for that.”
Recently, Macey was named ARCH Orthodontics’ ‘Patient of the Quarter’ for her sportsmanship, team spirit, positive attitude, and extraordinary effort in everything she does, according to her Orthodontist, Dr. Andrew Chase of ARCH’s Bridgewater office.
Discussing Orthodontics, Macey told her mom, “Having straight, nice teeth is important because your smile tells a lot about a person. It’s important to keep your teeth healthy… You like to show them off when you take such good care of them.”
Macey describes a good Orthodontist as one who is interested in taking care of your teeth and making sure that you have a nice smile. “He or she, explains why you need braces and other treatments, and makes you feel safe and not scared.” Right now, Macey has braces on the top teeth in the front, but can’t get braces on the rest while she still has baby teeth. She’s wearing a cemented retainer on the inside of her bottom teeth to allow her jaw to be better positioned. Dr. Chase says in about a year, she’ll be able to get the rest of her braces.
Macey believes it‘s important to have perfect teeth and a great smile, even though, she says, “You should not judge a book by its cover, but first impressions always last. Perfect teeth in a perfect smile don’t make who you really are — but it sure does tell a good story!”

Lucy says, “ I am very close to all our team members who are all like family. We include each other in our personal lives which I feel shows through in the way we treat our patients. They become part of our family, too. If I’m able to make one thing in their daily lives a little bit easier, that makes my day. It can be as simple as changing an appointment or making someone feel more comfortable when in our office.” Lucy is married and has two children, Stella and Mason.
