Odds and ends: Andover returns its top three scorers from last year. ... Matt Rayner was a 2006 and 2007 Eagle-Tribune All-Star in football as a receiver. ... Andover advanced to the Division 1 East semis for first time in the eight-year history of program. ... Football star Mike Pierce, who played baseball last year, is giving lacrosse a try for the first time. ... Zach Kutchin, who played as a freshman, returns to the program after taking two years off. ... Junior Cam Smith, who separated his shoulder playing ice hockey, is unable to play this year, so he is serving as a team manager.

Coach Wayne Puglisi (9th year, 96-52 ): "We have a strong returning group from a team that made it to the (Division 1 East) semifinals, so we're feeling pretty good about the season. We have the scorers and Nick Reeder is looking good in goal. ... This team has more depth than last year."
