Lucy, or "Mrs. B" as she is known at Deering High School, coached varsity field hockey for 28 years, basketball for 11 years, and softball for 11 years. Her field hockey coaching included three tenures: 1949-1958, 1959-1961, and 1971-1988. During her years as a physical education teacher and coach, Lucy was regarded as Deering's "Dean of Women," who supported and motivated her players on and off the field.
In 1985, Lucy was the special guest of the Maine Field Hockey All-State Banquet, where she was honored for winning over 100 games. In 1989, she received the Special Recognition Award from Sargent College (B.U., Alumni Association).
