Beverly High Winter Sports Capsules 2012-13

BOYS HOCKEY

Last season: 14-6-1 (Lost to Saugus in Division 2 North first round)

Head coach: Bobby Gilligan (10th year, 92-72-14)

Team captains: Andrew Irving, Sr. LW; Connor Irving, Jr. C; Matt Hamor, Jr. D; Tom Lingren, Sr. F (asst.)

Other key returnees: Tim Biarelli, Soph. G; Ryan Santo, Jr. F; Jake Straw, Jr. RW; Nick Albano, Soph. D; Sean Munzing, Jr. D; Jack Morency, Jr. D; Kevin Lally, Jr. F; Ted Leathersich, Soph. F; Bryce Mitchell, Jr. G.

Interesting newcomers: Nate McLaughlin, Sr. F; Jesse McLaughlin, Soph. D; Sean Hanlon, Fr. D.

It’ll be a great season if: The hunger continues. Beverly felt there was quite a bit of unfinished business last season after an early round playoff loss, and virtually every player from that squad is back and hoping to make amends. Experience and depth are two huge pluses for the Panthers, who return 59 goals.

GIRLS HOCKEY

Last season: 10-9-2 (Fell in Division 1 preliminary round)

Head coach: Brian Seabury (1st year)

Team captains: Livvy Konaxis, Sr., F; Katie Szela, Sr., D

Key returnees: Nicole Woods, Jr., F; Caitlin McBride, Jr., D; Ami Thompson, Jr., G; Nicole Kamens, Jr., F; Anna O’Neill, Fr., F; Kristen McCarthy, Fr., F; Anna Hayden, Fr., F

It’ll be a great season if: The goaltending comes together. The Panthers have really only had two goalies (Brianna Jackson and Jenna LoVasco) in all their years as a varsity program, so it’ll be strange seeing another name on the scoresheet. Ami Thompson looked ready for the role in limited time last season, so expect Beverly to be among the area’s better girls teams.

BOYS BASKETBALL

Last season: 14-8 (Lost to North Andover, 59-47, in Div. 2 North quarterfinals)

Head coach: Scott Lewis (9th year)

Team captains: Cam Rogers, Sr. F/G; Dom Abate, Sr. G.

Other key returnees: John Berchoff, Jr. F; Jonangel Franco, Jr. G; Mike Dooling, Sr. F; Josh Cairns, Jr. G.
