Andover Sets 3 Records Before Taking A Break Until January 12th

At home on December 8, 2018 at 2:00 PM

In 1st Home Meet of the Year, Andover Performs Well

(Andover, MA) — For Andover’s home-opener, the boys competed well across all twelve events with many terrific early-season performances and with the absence of three team members. Among the highlights were Zack Peng’s ’21 establishing new School and Pool records in diving as well as Arnold Su’s ’20 breaking his own Pool record in the 100 Breaststroke.



Andover’s rookies—Brendon Fang ’22, Max Fang ’22, Max Hunger ’20, Ralph Lam ’22, Bennett Pease ‘21, and Hank Yang ’22—all swam and dove well in their first meet at Andover. Our additional returners—Jack Curtin ’19, Sam Donchi ’20, Jacob Hudgins ’19, Yubo Jin ’21, Marcus Lee ’21 (with a strong fan base today!), Rick Ono ’19, Captain Neil Simpson ’19, Riku Tanaka ’20, Jack Warden ’19, and Andy Xu ’19—picked up where they started last week after a week of some training.



Andover’s next meet is 12 January 2019 at the Peddie School in New Jersey. We are excited to do a whole lot of work between now and then!
