Despite losing twice to Worcester Academy last Saturday, Andover Baseball was on fire as they cruised past Pingree 12-0 this past Wednesday.

RBI singles from Chris Hohlstein ’14, John Festa ’15, Connor Farrell ’13 and a sacrifice fly by Harry Roche ’13 grounded Andover’s strong start to the game. “The last couple games we hadn’t been hitting really well,” said Thomas Lane ’15. “But we have been working on...

With a team of only 12 players, Andover Ultimate played two back-to-back games against Hotchkiss and Northfield Mount Hermon last Saturday. Andover lost both games 9-11 and 3-11, respectively, despite showing substantial improvement in both skill and strategy. The team attributes its loss to fatigue during both games. “It’s not an excuse,” said Co-Captain Alec Tolentino ’14. “But it’s still really hard to play when you’re playing every point.” “We were short and that made us resort to...

Andover lost its opening game of the season 3-1 to Northfield Mount Hermon on Saturday. Andover won the second set 25-17 but lost the first, third and fourth sets 22-25, 21-25 and 21-25. “I think the team did very well against a strong team,” said David Yoon ’14. “We really came together as a team during the whole game. We came very close to winning all of the sets we played, but the games we lost were because of failure to make decisive plays at the last moment.” Alex Tamkin ’14 helped lead...

Chris Kralik ’15, who beat his...

On Saturday, G4 for Andover Girls Crew pulled four boat lengths ahead to beat Kent by 17 seconds. Andover’s third and second boats lost close races to their Kent opponents, who were more familiar with the twisting course. “The Kent course has two major turns, lots of current and small buoys, making it very hard for the coxswains to steer a good course. Frankly, it was a challenge to even see the course markings at all. A great deal of attention was paid to making sure our boats stayed in...

The wins at the one and two spots were particularly impressive, seeing as both faced talented opponents, but Andover still managed to come out on top. “My personal match was very close. I played the girl last year in which we split sets, and I...

Andover, currently ranked seventh in New England, faced a very challenging Cushing team. The two teams duelled it out into an extra inning before Hohlstein settled the game. “We knew Cushing...
