The Andover Townsman

---- — The 30th annual Scott Heseltine Memorial Tournament was a successful one for Andover hockey players.

Each division β€” Mite A, B and C β€” was won by the Andover team.

The tournament is held over Thanksgiving Weekend at the Phillips Academy rink.

Scott Heseltine learned to play hockey at Phillips Academy and played in the Andover Hockey Association from Mites through Bantam before his life was cut short in 1982, according to the AHA. β€œThe foundation of the Tournament is sportsmanship, camaraderie and fun - and regardless of which team comes out on top in the Final game on Sunday, all participants are winners,” states the AHA website.

A trophy that lists all previous Scott Heseltine Tournament champion teams resides at the Andover Hockey Shop in Shawsheen Square.
