Andover Nordic will be comprised of new faces and youthful energy this year. Of the top racers from Girls Nordic last year, only Olivia LaMarche ’16 will return to compete this season. Of the top racers from Boys Nordic last year, only Captain Paxton Hyde ’15 will return. Head Coach Keith Robinson, however, is optimistic. “We have some young newcomers with experience,” said Robinson. “Hopefully the team will come together and quickly improve.” Sixteen new skiers will join a returning...

Collin Nugent ’16 cut into Andover Boys Hockey’s offensive zone, toe-dragged past the opposing defenseman and flicked a powerful wrist shot that slipped past the goalie’s blocker. The goal marked Nugent’s second in his Andover debut and was the final goal of Andover 3-1 win over Brewster last Friday. “We had a great start to the season with a 3-1 win against Brewster. Our team so far seems to have good chemistry, and we are getting the puck out of the zone when needed,” said Nugent. The...

Andover Girls Squash shut out Tabor 7-0 on Wednesday, bouncing back from a tough loss to a competitive Milton team in a scrimmage on Saturday. The sound victory left the team feeling more confident going in to the rest of the season. “The girls played clean, aggressive and smart squash all the way down the line. The match provided an excellent opportunity for our team to shake off nervous energy, practice their short games and refine their depth,” said Head Coach Jennifer Elliott....

Co-Captain Alex Li ’15 sped to first place in the 100-Meter Fly against Peddie with a time of 52.40, just a few hundredths of a second short of his personal record. Alex Li’s victory, one of Andover’s only wins in a dual meet against Suffield and Peddie, was not enough to push Andover Boys Swimming to victory on Saturday. Andover lost 84-101 to last year’s championship runner-up Suffield and 60-120 to perennial powerhouse Peddie, its first loss in the regular season in five years. Last year...

Janneke Evans ’18 power-dribbled, drop-stepped into her defender and banked the ball into the hoop as her defender hacked her arm. Evans sunk her free throw to complete the three-point play and to jump start Andover’s rally late in the second half of its game against Governor’s. Andover Girls Basketball’s comeback effort, however, was not enough. The team fell 37-28 in its first game of the season. The team struggled to gain offensive momentum and play as a cohesive unit. “I think our...

Andover Boys Basketball kicked off its season with a 54-33 victory over St. Paul’s on Friday. After jumping out to an early lead and faltering towards the end of the first half, Andover recovered to outscore its opponents 34-13 in the second half. There were plenty of bright spots for Andover in the game, one of which was Andrew Reavis ’17, the only underclassman to crack the team’s starting lineup. Reavis finished the game with nine points, six assists and five rebounds. He pushed the ball...

Kelly Mackey ’15 took off from her own zone, blew past the Winchendon defender and deked to her left. Leaving the Winchendon goalie sprawling on the ice, Mackey calmly flipped the puck into the back of the net for a smooth hat trick. The goal gave Andover Girls Hockey a commanding 4-0 lead early in the second period. Mackey scored half of the team’s goals in its 6-3 win over Winchendon last Wednesday. “I wasn’t really thinking about [the hat trick] at all after the first two goals. I just...

This Saturday morning, members of the Andover community will have a chance to play a game of squash with “Mr. Palfrey and the Boys” — Head of School John Palfrey and the Andover Boys Squash team — as part of a joint effort from Andover Squash and the Lawrence, Mass., branch of the SquashBusters program to raise funds for SquashBusters. SquashBusters is an urban squash program originally based in Boston, Mass., founded in 1996 by Greg Zaff. It was the first ever afterschool program that...

Reigning Division III National Champions, Andover Boys Squash squashed Tabor with a 6-1 victory on Saturday. The team opens this season attempting to carry over the power and skills that led it to an 8-9 Interscholastic record and Championship title last season. With the win against Tabor and a well-fought scrimmage against Belmont Hill, one of the top three teams in the country, the team has started the season on a strong note. Second-year Captain and number-one player Michael Huang ’15...

Struggling to make up for the graduation of last year’s Seniors, Andover Girls Swimming fell short in its season opener this weekend against Suffield and Peddie. The team consists of very few returners and suffered from a lack of practice time compared to its opponents. Suffield and Peddie are also some of the strongest competition Andover will face all season. “It is very early in our season.... Losing this early in the season will only help to motivate us and keep us focused,” wrote...

Despite falling to Exeter at the end of last season, ending with a .500 record and graduating many Senior leaders, Andover Indoor Track is jumping into the winter season with optimism. Captain John Gorton ’15 is filling big shoes following the graduation of last year’s Co-Captains Jonathan Arone ’14 and Matt Fischetti ’14. “Fischetti dominated Hurdles and High Jump, and Arone always gave his all in the 50. Filling those spots is going to be challenging, but I have no doubt the team will...
