Just like her Hall of Fame mother

Goulet takes after her Hall of Fame mother

(Continued)

The Goulet family is very athletic. Alyssa’s brother Bryan Goulet was a football standout at Whittier Tech where as a senior he benched 325 pounds and squatted 420. The 6-9, 320-pounder now plays football at Anna Maria.

Her 6-1 sister Jessica Goulet starred at volleyball (Eagle-Tribune All-Star), basketball and softball at Whittier and now plays volleyball and basketball at Northern Essex.

“I know people are watching me knowing how my sister played and how my mother played,” Alyssa said. “I want to live up to how good they played. I want to prove to them I can do that.”

Alois the scorer

During her first three years at Andover, Jackie Alois primarily rebounded and fed the ball to top scorers Nicole Boudreau, Ally Fazio and Devon Caveney.

With Boudreau and Fazio graduated, Alois has become a scorer. She is averaging 9.3 points a game and has made seven 3-pointers.

“I’ve always been a good shooter,” Alois said. “Just in the previous years, I never thought of offense as an option for me. Now this year, I kind of have to. When the better players are covering Devon (Caveney) and (Angelice Gonzalez), I’m usually open. And I take the open shots.”

Alois and her sister/teammate Rebecca Alois spent a lot of time during the offseason practicing at Andover’s fieldhouse.

Andover’s offense

Andover has been working on offense a great deal in practice recently.

“We’ve been focusing mostly on our offense,” Jackie Alois said. “Our defense in games has been pretty solid. But when we get down to the offensive end we’re kind of frazzled. We need to settle things down.”

Vondrasek impresses

Timberlane senior guard Dakotah Vondrasek is off to an impressive start, including netting 17 points in the Owls’ opener and 12 points in Timberlane’s latest victory.
