Andover Freshman

GYMNASTICS MVP: Manning caps off career in perfect fashion
Brian Manning capped his brilliant high school career by placing first in every event and easily winning the all-around with a score of 55.0 to lead Andover to the boys gymnastics state championship for the first time since 1970. He set the state record in the vault (9.8) and naturally was named the state’s Most Outstanding Gymnast. “He did everything possible for the team that day and we came up with a state title because of it,” coach Steve Sirois said. He was an Eagle-Tribune All-Star last year when he finished second in the allaround (52.8) at States, winning the parallel bars and pommel horse. Manning, who has signed with topranked Penn State, overcame a broken tibia during his sophomore year. “You wake up every morning in pain, but you push through it because you love the sport,” Manning said this winter. “You want to have the feeling of trying

MVP: Perfect Monserrat reaches goal
Christian Monserrat is a tough guy to satisfy. After finishing second at New England two years in a row, he reached his goal of becoming a New England champion. Still, the Methuen junior was not entirely pleased. “I should have had more points,” said Monserrat. Central Catholic senior Pat Lacroix might disagree, however. He lost to Monserrat in the New England 126-pound finals, 5-2. It was only his fourth loss of the year, but third to Monserrat. Monserrat’s championship victory capped a remarkable season in which he finished 58-0, recording 36 pins, eight technical falls and six major decisions. Monserrat was at his best against the toughest foes. In his 17 wins in postseason tournaments, he had four pins, six technical falls and four major decisions. At All-State, he was named Outstanding Wrestler for the lighter weights. But it’s hard to say that he stepped it up much. This was his third straight unbeaten regular season and third straight All-State title. He has yet to lose outside of New England and will bring a stunning 155-2 record into his senior season. He’s well within range of John Sughrue’s school record 204 career wins. “I’ve still got a lot more I want to accomplish,” said Monserrat, who has been training at the Barn in Danville for over five years. “I have to stay focused and keep working.”

It will be interesting to see how the Central Catholic swim team adapts to the graduation of David Kitchen. After all, the senior was the personification of Most Valuable Player during the Raiders’ breakout 2012-2013 campaign. Kitchen substantially improved on a junior season that earned him Eagle-Tribune All-Star honors, highlighted by a super performance in a weather-delayed Division 1 state meet. After setting a school record in 2012 in the 200 IM sectionals and placing sixth in the states, Kitchen entered this year’s race as the third seed and sprinted to the championship. In doing so, he shattered his own record by 1.31 seconds by swimming a 1:58.01. “I was just going for a personal best in the IM and I ended up winning the event,” Kitchen explained at the time. “Being able to get my personal best

Skiing All-Stars

MVP: Windham’s Taylor made lasting impression
In her first and only season competing for Windham High School, senior Nicole Taylor wanted to make both a good first and last impression. She did both. Taylor, who spent two winters competing for Waterville Valley Academy and another skiing for a high school in Colorado, excelled competing for the Jaguars this year. She won every regular season race and was the Division 2 state champion in both the slalom and giant slalom. She finished second at the Meet of Champions and was named to the New Hampshire team in the Eastern Regional championships. A competitive skier at Mount Sunapee since she was 6, Taylor is at her best on fast courses. Already ranked nationally, she wants to ski in college and is looking at schools as far away as Colorado and Alaska. “She’s just a phenomenal skier but she’s also just a great kid,” said Windham coach Kellie Steward. “She doesn’t have the big ego that you see with a lot of the great skiers.”

MVP: Nelson shined in playoffs
Saul Phiri
Haverhill High School, Freshman Guard An already-stacked Division 1 North sectional got a bit dicier for the Central Catholic boys when two Eagle-Tribune All-Star big men were deemed unavailable for the postseason due to injury. If the Raiders were going to make some noise, it would be without Doug Gemmell and Nick Cambio. For one Raider, junior Tyler Nelson, it meant strapping his team’s offense on his back. Would Nelson, who averaged 14.9 points a game through the regular season in which the Raiders spread the ball around to four double-figure scorers, be up to the task? Four straight dominating wins and the accompanying North title would emphatically confirm that question for Nelson, our 2013 EagleTribune Boys Basketball Player of the Year. In a sectional that the St. John’s Prep or Lynn English guards were expected to dominate, Nelson clearly proved to be the class, averaging 24.8 a game when it mattered most. “We put a lot on Tyler’s shoulders,” said Raider coach Rick Nault. “And he handled it incredibly well. I think we saw the competitor that he really is.” This is not to sell the 6-foot-2 guard’s regular season short. Nelson, the most heavilyguarded player in the MVC, helped lead the Raiders to
Averaged 14.5, 19.9, 15.3 and 13.7 points a game over his four seasons. Finishes with 1,432 career points.
