Winter All-State champion.
Spring Division 1
champion. Spring All-
State champion. Is there
any boys' team that's had
a better 2009 than the
Andover track team? Earlier
this month, Andover came from
behind in the meet's last event, the
pole vault, to win the All-State title.
Mark Vetere led the way for the
Golden Warriors, winning the pole
vault with a jump of 14 feet 6 inches
while also running in two relays, one
of which -- the 4 x 400 -- clinched
the state title. "It really validates our
team and it really validates what
we've been preaching all year,'' said
coach Peter Comeau.
