This person has been involved in the sport of horseshoe pitching for nearly 20 years. She was and still is a dedicated organizer for our sport. She started by holding various positions in the Nashua Horseshoe Club. She was actively involved in the Nashua League and held such positions as Vice President, Statistician, and Secretary. She is a dedicated Tournament Director for the Nashua Horseshoe Club and ran many tournaments including the State Tournament every other year.

She was Vice President of the New Hampshire Horseshoe Pitchers Association and encouraged changes for the betterment of the organization. Beyond her organization abilities are her abilities as a great horseshoe pitcher. In the last 15 years she has pitched in 100 sanctioned tournaments and has won her class 13 times. During these 15 years her overall percentage has fluctuated from a low of 45 % in 1992 to a high of 69.2% in 1996 and since then has continued to maintain an average in the middle 60's.

She was always extremely exciting to watch, often beating many of the top players in her class. She pitched in 11 New England Tournaments since 1992. In 1992 she played in class B and came in third with a 50.9%. In 1993 she also played in class B and came in 2nd with a 62.1%1. Then she started to substantially increase her average and made class A in 1994 taking 4lh place with a 71.4%.

During the 8 years she played in class A she came in 6th place twice, 5th place once, 41h place 3 times and 3rd place twice. During those 8 years, pitching at the New England level she averaged an incredible 68%. She also pitched 4 World Tournaments coming in 8th in Class A in 1994 with an 8 and 7 record, her average in the 4 tournaments ranged from 60.17 to 69 %.

She had her greatest years pitching in the New Hampshire State Tournament. She pitched in 8 state tournaments, all in class A. During these years she faced the toughest of competitors. She came in 3rd place twice and 2nd place 6 times. Then in 2001 she reached the pinnacle of her sport by winning the State tournament with an outstanding 7643 %. But this was not the end; she won her second state title again in 2002 and her third in 2005.
This person is truly a great champion and it's my pleasure on behalf of the New Hampshire Horseshoe Pitchers association to induct LISA MAILLE into the New Hampshire Horseshoe Pitchers Hall of Fame as a player and organizer.
