Saluting our area's Unsung Heroes

Saluting the overachievers, the quiet leaders and the often overlooked athletes in local high school sports.

Coaches or ADs should send nominations to Unsung Heroes writer Michael Muldoon at mmuldoon@eagletribune.com.

Andrew Lewis

Windham Soccer

Soccer Scholar

Lewis is a top scholar who hopes to attend WPI or Rochester Institute of Technology to become a computer engineer. A member of the National Honor Society, he is ranked 26th in a class of 171 and scored a 690 on his Math SAT.

Coach Mike Hachey said, “Andrew played his first full season as a varsity player. You can always find a place on your roster for a character player such as Andrew. You couldn’t ask for a nicer, more genuine young man.”

Lewis, whose younger sister Lexi stars for the Jags’ girls team, is a member of the Robotics Club and three different bands. He also has his own landscaping business. Lewis’ favorites include the movie “Gladiator”, the computer game “League of Legends” and physics teacher Patrick Kaplo.

Morgan Starkweather

Andover Swimming

Versatile Warrior

Coach Marilyn Fitzgerald said, “She had been a sprint freestyler for three years and we needed her in backstroke for Sectionals and States. She worked relentlessly the last three weeks of the season and came in fifth at States.”

The junior, a year-round swimmer, is a member of the National Honor Society. Her sister Casey, a freshman, will be running track for the Golden Warriors.

Morgan is a personal care assistant and also works as a lifeguard and swim instructor at the Salem Boys and Girls club. She hopes to pursue a career in athletic training or physical therapy.

Starkweather’s favorites include skiing at Okimo, Spanish teacher Ellen Gaudiano, Taylor Swift and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.
