Methuen opens football job

Methuen has officially opened its varsity football head coach position, confirmed athletic director Jim Weymouth.

Tom Tone had served as interim head coach each of the last two seasons, going 3-8 both seasons. He took over for Pat Graham in March of 2011 when Graham departed for what turned out to be a short stint as coach at Merrimack College. Graham, who spent this fall as linebacker coach at Saint Anselm College, was 26-18 in four years at Methuen, including 24-10 in his last three seasons.

“Tom had always been interim,” said Weymouth. “He got the job so late the first year, we wanted to give him time for evaluation. The prospects had always been that we would open the job after the second season.

“Tom is a very knowledgeable man who put in the time. You will have to ask him if he will be applying for the job this time. We will have to see how the process works out.”

Weymouth said he hopes to have a new coach in place by the end of January.

Caveney chooses Williams

Andover High basketball star Devon Caveney locked up her college plans on Thursday, when she was accepted to the elite Williams College, where she will play basketball.

The senior co-captain was a key member of Andover’s Division 1 state title three-peat, as sixth man in 2010 and a starter each of the last two seasons.

“It’s an amazing school that I’m really excited to be going,” said the two-time Eagle-Tribune All-Star. “I feel like the NESCAC is a great fit.”

Caveney isn’t the first Golden Warrior hoops star to play at Williams. Former Eagle-Tribune-All-Star Laura Renfro, a star on the 2008 team that made the Division 1 state title game, also played for the Ephs.
