After falling to the same St. Paul’s opponent in four games earlier this season, Jack Quamme ’16 outlasted his opponent in a five game thriller and avenged his previous losses this past Saturday at the Boys Squash Interschols. Despite Quamme’s redemption, Andover placed last among the 16 teams in group A. Although the team earned a total of 26 points, only four Andover players won matches throughout the tournament: Quamme, Co-Captain Jack Wain ’14, Rem Remmel ’14 and Justin Curtis ’15. “...

With sweat dripping down his forehead, Co-Captain Christian Vallis ’14 capitalized on his opponent’s weakness and threw him to the mat and so secured eighth place in the 132-pound weight class at Nationals. Due to his “come-[from]-behind match,” as Vallis described it, he was named an All-American for the third time in his wrestling career and outplaced the only opponent he lost to at the New England Championships last week. “[Being named All-American is] a great accomplishment [that]...

With time running down in the game, Brandon Michel ’14 elevated for a desparate 3-pointer to send the game into overtime.

Andover started off in an offensive rut. The team put up only 19 first-half points and fell into a 12-point hole by halftime. “We just came out with no energy. Everyone was tired because we had...

One minute, seven seconds, and 96 milliseconds. That was all the time it took for Danielle Liu ’14 to finish the 100-breaststroke.

A pretty, perfect ballerina with a pink tutu, twirling with her arms above her head; ladylike hair with a Barbie-like face—these are the stereotypical images of dancers that come to most people’s minds, according to Olivia Berkey ’15. “The real image is a sweaty dancer with ripped shoes, broken toes, blood coming out of her tights, and that’s really what dance is. People don’t see this, because dancers are so highly trained to mask this intensity, to make everything appear absolutely...
