The Andover boys played some great tennis this weekend in front of the largest crowd that Señor Conner has seen at a tennis match at Groton in thirty-seven years of coaching. They gave their all, coming through in very difficult conditions, and represented Andover with absolute integrity and honor. I am especially proud of how the boys competed and carried themselves.
