A look back at another exciting winter in Andover High sports

A look back at an exciting season in Andover High sports


Aronov won the all-around crown at the state Coaches’ Invitational and followed that by placing second in the all-around and four individual events at the state meet, leading the Golden Warriors to a third-place finish as a team.

Skier Julia Ganley was already having an outstanding season, but through her first four meets had yet to score a victory.

But that was about to end for the star student, who sits atop her Andover High senior class.

Ganley scored her first win of the season, and second of her career, on Jan. 29, took first again in her next meet and made it three firsts in a row on Feb. 7. She continued to star with a second overall at the Interscholastic Meet and was 17th in the giant slalom at the state meet.

With two years left in her high school career, girls hockey standout Veronica Alois is going to have to work tremendously hard to top the season she had as a sophomore.

Alois potted a whopping 31 goals this season, and finished with 39 points overall, the fifth most goals in the program’s 13-year history.

Alois scored at least one goal in 14 of the Golden Warriors’ final 16 games, including five multi-goal games and two hat tricks.

Hughes also had a terrific season with 11 goals and four-year starting goalie Meghan Johnson had a 2.00 goals-against average and two shutouts.

Whenever Andover girls basketball needed a big basket, the Golden Warriors could always look to the backcourt duo of Colleen Caveney and Jessica Witten. At least one of the two scored in double digits in all but one game all season.

Caveney, a junior, stepped into the top scoring role vacated by her cousin, Devon, and averaged a team-best 14.1 points a game this season, scoring in double digits in all but four games, including five games of 20 points or more.
