A look back at the 2014 spring season

A look back at the 2014 AHS spring season


Third baseman Frank Potts finished the year as the Warriors’ top hitter, batting .452 with 16 RBIs and 12 runs scored.

Tommy John surgery may have prevented Alex Brickman from pitching, but it sure didn’t stop him from hitting. He finished with a .428 batting average and 15 RBIs. Despite spending most of the year in the leadoff spot, Tim Awiszus drove in a team-high 20 runs to go with his .400 average, while freshman E.J. Perry IV matched that batting average while scoring and driving in 18 runs.

On the mound, Bryant finished with a miniscule 0.67 ERA and Colin Flynn led the team in wins (5) and strikeouts (49).

Hurdle heroics

Ask just about anyone involved in track, and they will tell you the hurdles are the most grueling events to take on.

As a freshman, Sebastian Silveira was jokingly told to stay as far away as possible from the hurdles. So who could have guessed what would happen this season.

Picking up the event out of curiosity — and necessity for the team — Silveira wasted no time becoming a star.

After taking second in the 400 hurdles at the Haverhill Invitational and Andover Boosters, Silveira won the MVC Meet title and was third at the EMass. Division 1 Meet. Finally, at New Balance Nationals, he took seventh in the 110 hurdles emerging elite division in 14.85, on the heels of the Andover (automatic-timed) school record of 14.62 run by Jason McCue in 1991.


It was also a huge year for junior Hamza Naveed, who won the 400 crown at Andover Boosters and the MVC Meet and was fifth at the Division 1 meet.

He then earned gold at Nationals, as he teamed with Dylan Epstein, Kevin Chen and Ray Gorzela to win the 800 sprint medley relay emerging elite crown.


It was a successful return to the track for girls star Courtney Comeau after missing her junior season with a back injury. She took second at MVCs, then was seventh at EMass. Division 1 states in the 100 hurdles.
