Although Andover Boys Volleyball had a positive outlook heading into the season with the arrival of many new, and promising players, the team lost its first scrimmage on Thursday 3-1 against talented Central Catholic. “This was our first game, and we only had a week of practice together beforehand,” said Ji Tae Park ’14. “I have seen so much improvement in the team so far, and we just have to get together better and know where we are going to be during defense.” “If we can improve our defense...

The water was extremely choppy, and it was freezing cold,” said Victoria Everett ’14, a new rower on the G1 boat. “Although we did...

Quinn Daly ’13 fought back two match points to win his match in three sets, but Andover Boys Tennis still suffered a tough 4-3 loss at Taft on Saturday.

Andover lost two of its...

Despite overcoming a slow start and mounting an impressive seven point comeback in its first game of the season, Andover Ultimate fell just four points short of edging out Newton North. For the young team, however, the close 10-14 game reflected the team’s rapid improvement and pinpointed weaknesses for future progression. “We weren’t quite sure what we should do, what we wanted to do,” said Co-Captain Alec Tolentino ’14. “There was a lot of space on the field, but as the game went on, our...

Andover Boys Crew persevered through horrible weather conditions and a shortened race in its scrimmage against Greater Lawrence Rowing (GLBC) and Essex Rowing this past Saturday. The team faced brutal, rough winds and frigid temperatures. For safety reasons, some of the races had to be shortened from 1500 to 1000 meters to avoid white caps on the early part of the course. “The race was definitely more of a battle through conditions than a race,” said Captain Henry Kennelly ’13. That being...
