Fast fact: No question, defenseman Chas Heseltine can hit. He was the No. 2 tackler on the MVC Division 1 champion football team. ... Nathaniel Spellacy was a key contributor to the baseball team last spring (.302, 12 runs). ... Colby Gilbert broke out with a 24-save shutout of Super 8 semifinalist Central Catholic last season. ... Andover is ranked No. 23 in ESPNBoston’s preseason statewide poll.

Coach Mike Ciarletta (2nd year, 10-8-3): “Scott Campbell and Tyler Weeks lead the way up front. We are definitely looking for them to score. Brett Coneeny has also improved a lot at center. Colby (Gilbert) played really well down the stretch last season, but Dan McLaughlin will also play in net.”
