Wrestling breaks through with victory

WRESTLING

Patrick Meagher needed just 46 seconds to score a pin at 120 pounds to help Andover capture its first dual meet victory in two years with a 42-39 win over Peabody last Thursday. Shaun Merrill (170 pounds) added a pin in 1:06, Matt Marcotte (132) scored a pin in 1:18 and Matt Stamos (195 pounds) pinned in 3:24.

GIRLS TRACK

Haut earns first

Looking to rebound from a junior season derailed by injury, Andover High senior Catherine Haut got off to an impressive start in the first major meet of the winter, winning the long jump with a 17-7 at the MVC Indoor Championship last Friday at the Reggie Lewis Center.

Andover took second as a team with 68.5 points, just off the pace of winner Lowell (88 points).

“I’ve been lifting a lot and I think that’s what’s really given me the power to long jump,” said Haut, who also took fifth in the 300 (43.37). “I’ve been running a lot this year, too.”

Also looking to bounce back from injury, senior Courtney Comeau took second in the 55-meter hurdles in 8.76. Hannah Ameen added a second in the 55 dash, Casey McCarroll tied for second in the high jump and Catherine Donovan was third in the 1,000. The 4x200 and 4x400 relay squads each also grabbed seconds.

Relay takes gold

The team of Oliver Eberth, George Cardillo, Kevin Chen and Hamza Naveen ran to victory in the 4x200 relay to help Andover to a second-place finish at the MVC Indoor Meet with 58 points. Lowell earned the win with 79 points.

Eberth also scored a second in the 300 in 36.74, while Steve Caveney was second in the 55 hurdles (7.79), Jeremy Travaglini was runner-up in the long jump (19-8) and the 4x400 also took silver. Sebastian Silveira added a third in the 600, one place ahead of teammate Robert Perry.
