ATHLETE OF THE WEEK


The Andover Townsman

---- — SENIOR MAX GALAT

Max is a senior quad-captain for the Andover High cross-country team and its No. 1 runner. Last week, as the Golden Warriors hosted a talented North Andover squad bolstered by two talented transfers plus a strong group of returning runners, Max battled against his top two competitors for the lead for about 2 miles. With a strong push over the last mile, Max was able to pull away and take the victory. From coach Leo Lafond: “In a meet where every position was important, Max’s first-place finish was one of the keys to the victory.” As a bonus, Max is a member of the National Honor Society, too.
