Andover defeated Exeter on Wednesday by three strokes. Led by Captain Kavan Canekeratne ’14 (40), Alexa Tsay ’17 (37), Ellie Blum ’15 (39) and David Todd ’16 (40), Andover took the lead in the race for the Lovell Cup, which goes to the winner of the Andover-Exeter rivalry.

“It was a tough and quirky course that really tested your consistency,” said Rob Devaney ’14. “We were able to hold it together as a team and stay ahead for the Lovell cup. I played pretty poorly today but my teammates rallied and bailed me out.”

Last Monday, Alexa Tsay ’17, Ellie Blum ’15 and Alice Ahn ’16 competed in an all-girls tournament. Tsay tied for first place of around 90 girls with a 74 after she birdied the last three holes. Both Tsay and her opponent birdied on the first playoff hole, but Tsay lost on the second playoff hole. Blum tied for eighth with a 79. Ahn competed in the nine hole division and ended with a 52.

Friday, April 9, Andover tied with BB&N 4-4. Andover struggled adjusting to the unfamiliar course at Bradford Country Club, but Blum rescued the team. She made a clutch chip and a putt to tie the match. Andover’s record rests at 6-1-1 on the season.

Andover battles Exeter and Governor’s Academy on Saturday to determine who will take home the Lovell and Witherspoon Cups in the last match of the season.
