Andover Football suffered its fourth loss of the season, 32-0, to Suffield Academy on Saturday. “The most positive thing about the game was that no one got hurt. There were no more injuries, so everyone that was out there on Saturday should be at practice this week,” said Head Coach Leon Modeste. Dane Wagner ’15 contributed an extra point block, but Andover’s turnover woes extended into Saturday’s game, with the team giving up more turnovers than it generated. In its only win of the...

Andover Girls Volleyball defeated Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH) in a 3-0 sweep this past Saturday for its seventh shutout of the season. Andover came out flat in the first set, allowing NMH to jump to an early 8-3 lead. “Three of the seven starters had the PSATs that morning, so we were a little tired mentally. It is a long drive up to NMH, so coming off the bus and having to jump right into the game was tough,” said Co-Captain Erica Shin ’16. Serves from Eden Livingston ’15 brought...

Ten minutes after the opening whistle of Andover Boys Soccer’s game against Northfield Mount Hermon (NMH) last Saturday, Alex Dziadosz ’16 sent a high-soaring cross to Peter Heckendorn ’17 in the six-yard box.

That moment was indicative of the entire game as Andover struggled to find the net time after time throughout the full 90 minutes and ultimately fell to NMH 4-0...
