Gross, girls lacrosse red hot


Hannah Chapman ended up second in the triple jump with a 34-9 1/2, but she knows she could have had the win.

“My last jump I went all out and I fouled by this much,” she said. “We measured it and it was a 36-2. The winner jumped 35-3. I would have won by almost a foot. But when you get a great jump and you know how it feels, you feel like you can recreate it.”

Lizzie Chapman won the long jump (16-0 ½) and triple jump (34-8 ¼) to help Andover beat Central Catholic 85-60 last Wednesday. Lizzie Kobelski took the 100 hurdles, Hannah Ameen won the 100 dash Cate Donovan took the 800 for the winners.


Deloury swings big bat

With Andrew Deloury standing at third, Chris Dunn dropped down a perfectly-placed suicide squeeze bunt and Deloury scampered home for the run that gave Andover a 4-3 win over Chelmsford in eight innings last Wednesday.

Cam Farnham used his speed to score the tying run in the fifth. He walked, took off to steal second and as a blooper fell in he came all the way around to score on a ball that did not leave the infield.

Chris Dunn continued to sizzle, going 3 for 3 with two RBIs and a run scored as Andover won its sixth straight with a 4-0 victory over Methuen on Friday. Jack Cox added two hits and two RBIs and Alex Brickman scored twice for the winners.

Tim Awiszus had a hit and drove in a run, but Andover lost to Lowell 5-3 on Monday. Chris Dunn added an RBI and a run scored for the Warriors.


Maldari stars at Boosters

Mike Maldari was third in the 800 (1:59.44) and Hamza Naveed took third in the 200 in 22.69 to lead Andover at the Andover Booster Meet on Saturday.

Hamza Naveed continued his outstanding season with wins in the 400 (52.3) and 200 (22.9) but Andover lost to Central Catholic 99-46 last Wednesday. The Warriors excelled in the distance events, with Mike Maldari winning the mile, Max Galat taking the 2-mile and Rob Perry winning the 800.
