Boston University women’s soccer coach Nancy Feldman knows how to find Andover on the map. She’s recruited three former Golden Warriors who’ve had tremendous careers for the Terriers.
“Andover has been very good to me,” said Feldman, who recently completed her 18th season on Commonwealth Ave.
It began with Meghan (Lynch) Matson.
Now as the Andover High coach, Matson helped send two of her stars to Boston University.
