Andover Boys Crew opened up its race season with an overwhelming sweep of Essex Rowing Club and Simsbury High School this past Saturday. The team’s past two weeks of training on the Merrimack River have paid off as the team claimed first place in each of the five races. Because of the cold and windy weather, the conditions on the river were rough. There was a strong tail current, which resulted in a floating start, so the starting places were not consistent. The times posted in different...

Chris Hohlstein ’14: SSComing in at 6’2” and 190lbs, Co-Captain Hohlstein is a projectable power and threat in the middle of the infield, a hot commodity in the baseball world.

Hohlstein, who is committed to Davidson College, boasts great bat speed that allows him to wait on pitches before whipping...

Almost every sports enthusiast has a deep, bordering-on-irrational loyalty to his or her geographic roots. This loyalty to location, not limited to one team, but instead encompassing teams of all sports representing a specific location, is the key to the heart of a sports fan — and the key to the success of sports website “Press Room Sports,” started by Cam Kerry ’16 and Pranav Tadikonda ’16 last spring.“Basically, we were trying to solve a problem that we ourselves ran into as sports fans....
