Beverly High Winter Sports Capsules 2012-13


It’ll be a great season if: Beverly can quickly develop some team chemistry and find a way to rebound with a small lineup. A big key to the early portion of the Panthers’ schedule will be how quickly they come together. Beverly got a late start because of all the football players who missed the first week of practice. The Panthers also have to overcome the loss of the size they had in the frontcourt last winter.


Last season: 3-17

Head coach: Matt Smith (13th year)

Team captains: Andrea Zelano, Sr. F; Jill Stirrat, Sr. G; Abby Carnevale, Jr. F.

Other key returnees: Christina Hart, Sr. F; Tatyana Murad, Sr. G; MaryCate Flaherty, Jr. G.

It’ll be a great season if: “If we improve every practice and every game,” Smith said. “We had a very good week of tryouts; the girls worked really hard and appear to be buying in to our new style of play.”


Last season: 6-1

Head coach: Dave Swensen (1st year)

Team captains: Karl Brandt, Sr., sprints, freestyle; Becca Kemmer, Sr., all-around; Emily Walsh, Jr., distance freestyle; Jackie Cohen, Jr.

Other key returnees: Maddie Thomas, Soph., freestyle; Mackenna Ward, Jr., all-around; Caroline Decker, Soph., all-around; Maddie Curran, Soph., backstroke, freestyle; Patrick Donoghue, Sr., all-around; Rachel Grant, Soph., butterfly; Mackenzie Swensen, Sr., diving; Sarah Welch, Fr., all-around; Astrid Swensen, Soph., butterfly, IM.

It’ll be a great season if: The Panthers have a strong freshman class to add to a solid the nucleus; they need to tap into its depth to have another great year.

Head coach: Lauryn Ginsburg (4th year)

Team captains: Loralee Smith, Sr.; Adrianna Beatrice, Sr.
