Sports: Bella DiFiore scored twice in the AHS field hockey team's 5-2 win over Central Catholic...AHS girls volleyball (15-3) beat Central Catholic behind Sophia Miele's 10 kills, 12 service points and 13 digs.(compiled from the Boston Globe high school scoreboard).

Weather: Fog this morning, giving way to cloudy skies. High of 67. Tonight, overcast and showers. Low of 58. More rain is in the forecast for Wednesday.

Programming Note: The select board had several key items on its agenda last night, including recommendations on the special town meeting warrant articles. Coverage will be posted on Andover News later today and included in tomorrow's newsletter.
