Andover Boys Tennis made quick work of Middlesex last Friday for a 6-2 victory. In addition to playing inside, slightly different from what the team is used to, with six single-set singles matches instead of two set matches, the team successfully compensated for the absence of key players Co-Captain Henry Kalb ’14 and Dan Wang ’14. Andover grabbed an early 2-1 lead with doubles wins at the Number 1 and 2 spots. After a winning doubles performance at third doubles last week, newcomer...

Isabella Haegg ’16 and Katherine Tobeason ’14 demolished their St. Paul’s opponents, both winning their singles matches 6-0, 6-0 in a 13-2 team win on Wednesday. The victory sealed a 2-0 kickoff to the season for Andover Girls Tennis. “To have two of us win 6-0, 6-0, that’s a big feat. It’s hard to keep your focus up for the whole match,” said Haegg. “I think it shows our focus has gotten better, to be able to close out two matches right from the beginning.” On top of winning five of six...

Planting the right foot and changing directions — a move she had executed perfectly thousands of times before. But in the middle of a lacrosse game last May, Andover Girls Lacrosse Captain Nekele McCall ’14 collapsed to the ground in pain. She had torn her Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). “In that moment, I knew it was pretty serious, and I wouldn’t be able to play for a while. I was so focused on how much it hurt,” said McCall. Before her ACL tear, McCall had won numerous...
