“Respect the ‘T,’” is the slogan that was echoed at Doucette Field on Saturday after Tewksbury High beat Dracut 35-21. Tewksbury ended its MVC Small schedule with a win that set their conference record for 2012 at a healthy 5-0. “Tremendous accomplishment,” said Tewksbury head coach Brian Aylward of the undefeated conference record. “It wasn’t an accomplishment that was done easily.

Dan Altavesta doesn't normally wear a cape or a mask or fight crime in a brightly colored costume, but the Tewksbury High junior 130-pounder sure played the role of super hero on Saturday. After losing two hard-fought contests to Dracut and Methuen in a Merrimack Valley Conference quad wrestling meet at Tewksbury High, the Redmen were trailing Andover by four points as Altavesta took the mat for the final match of a long day in the gymnasium. "We needed something big or we were going home empty-handed," said Tewksbury coach Brian Aylward. "And (Altavesta) came through for us." It would have taken either a technical fall (a win by 15 or more points) or a pin to get the points Tewksbury needed to pull out the win, and Altavesta got things …
