When Windham boys soccer won a 3-2 shootout over Hollis-Brookline in the Division 2 title game, coach Mike Hachey’s high school coach (Kerry Boles of Pinkerton) and his college coach from Colby-Sawyer both were in attendance.
Andover basketball players Devon Caveney, Jackie Alois and Rebecca Alois were on hand to see their ex-Golden Warriors teammate Nicole Boudreau play against Northwestern on Nov. 28 at Conte Forum.
“I miss playing with her,” Caveney said about Boudreau. “It was weird watching her play and not being on her team.”
RENE’S BIG TRYOUT
The Worcester Sharks signed Boston Bruins National Anthem singer Rene Rancourt to a what they are calling a one-game ATO (Anthem Tryout Agreement) when the Sharks host Portland at 3 p.m. Sunday at the DCU Center in Worcester.
Rancourt will sing the anthem and sign autographs for fans.
“I would like to thank the Worcester Sharks for the opportunity to stay in shape during the NHL work stoppage,” Rancourt said in a Sharks press release. “I look forward to getting my vocal cords back in game shape in the AHL.”
THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL

ALOIS’ VOWED TO SHOOT MORE
Andover’s Jackie Alois vowed to become a better scorer right after last season’s girls basketball state championship game.
“I’m going to get on the court and work on my shot,” she told The Eagle-Tribune last March. “I have a good shot. I just don’t like to shoot it. I get nervous. But I’m going to try to become more of an offensive threat, driving and shooting.”
Alois, who averaged 4.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists for the state champs last year, netted 16 points in her first game of this season, a 62-32 Andover victory over Lawrence on Tuesday.
