Danvers 2013 Spring Sports Previews


Coach’s Outlook: “In the short term, we’re looking get better every game. We’re young with only two seniors, and a lot can happen. We’re looking to control the controlables.”


Last year’s record: 9-10 (lost to Concord Carlisle, 14-0, in the East Div. 2 preliminary round)

Head coach: Tim Murphy (4th season)

Captains: Shea Doyle, Sr. A; Theo Hapbelamprou, Sr. D; Jay Calcagno, Jr. M.

Key Returnees: James Curley, So. G; Matt Flynn, Jr. M; Steven Ganley, So. M; Dan Geary, So. LSM.

Strengths: Teamwork. There isn’t one star that the Falcons will lean too heavily on this spring. Murphy expects Danvers to spread the wealth on offense and have defenders that each do their part for the good of the team.

Concerns: Depth. As good as it is to have a balanced attack, Murphy feels a couple of the big losses (Will Jennings on attack and midfielder Steven Christopher) could end up being holes that are difficult to fill.

Coach’s Outlook: “I expect us to be competitive in every game that we play. There are no games to take for granted, but I don’t think there are any teams on the schedule that we can’t beat. Our No. 1 goal is to host a playoff game and we’ll probably have to put 13-14 wins on the board to do that, so I guess that’s what we’re looking for.”


Last year’s record: 15-5 (Lost in Division 2 North quarterfinals)

Head coach: Ken Rawson (7th season)

Captains: Gabe Ochonski, Sr., singles.

Key Returnees: Nick Lisichenok, Jr., first singles; Jimmy Cunningham, Soph., doubles; Emmett Pierro, Jr., singles.

This season will be successful if: “We have some of our younger players get experience quickly.”


Last year’s record: 4-14

Head coach: Karen Corcoran (3rd season)
