Andover loses Haut

The Andover girls track team suffered a tough loss last week, when senior and former Eagle-Tribune All-Star triple jumper Catherine Haut suffered an injury to her Achilles tendon

Haut said she sustained a possiblyeruptured Achilles during last Wednesday’s dual meet against Central Catholic. She attended the Andover Boosters meet on Saturday wearing a walking boot.

An Eagle-Tribune All-Star and MVC champion in 2012, jumping 35-10 3/4, Haut has struggled with injuries since. She missed all of last spring due to shin and hamstring injuries. She did return in the winter to win the MVC crown in the long jump.

Haut will attend Colby College in the fall.

Star photographer

The outstanding photo of Catherine Haut featured above was taken by talented photographer and former Andover High track athlete Kelsey Stevens.

Stevens, who was a thrower for the Golden Warriors, graduated from AHS in 2013 and is now studying photography at North Park University in Chicago. You can see samples of her work at kstevensphoto.com

NECC honorees

Northern Essex Community College baseball earned a return trip to the NJCAA Division 3 World Series over the weekend, and a pair of locals have been honored.

Haverhill’s Jonathan DeLaCruz, who hit a key home run in the World Series clincher, was named to the NJCAA All-New England team, and took home the New England Golden Glove for center field. DeLaCruz is hitting .352 on the season. Also honored as All-New England was ace pitcher Ryan McAuliffe of North Reading.

Here to stay?

The MIAA voted last week to extend the current MIAA football playoff format through the 2015 season. The system, which was adopted prior to last season, consists of a seven-game regular season and three-game playoff to reach the Super Bowl. It will be reviewed following the upcoming 2014 season.
