This Week


This weekend, I was fortunate to attend a leadership and coaching conference in Atlanta.  Throughout my career I have probably attended close to a hundred of these type of events.  Of course, some are better than others but what they all do is make me realize how lucky I am to be a coach and athletic director.  We can all grow so much from the lessons we are allowed to learn and teach through athletics.

This weekend was one of the best conferences I have ever attended in large part because there were so many speakers who shared my vision of values based athletics.  Too often, people get wrapped up in the end result instead of paying attention to the process and details that make them worthy of the success they desire.  If a team does not have core values that each member not only believes in, understands and is committed to, then true success will always elude their grasp.  So, if you are a student-athlete or coach, ask yourself this question?  What do we stand for as a team?  How do those values and beliefs translate to the classroom and to your free time? Remember, whether you won or lost the game should have no impact on your commitment to the adherence of your core values.  So, figure it out and talk about it as a team.  Be a great teammate no matter what adversity or what great accomplishment comes your way.

By the way, one thing a speaker said this weekend I felt was applicable to our school had to do with fan support.  Our student council and captains council is working hard to improve school spirit and get more people to attend our events.  The speaker told a story of traveling to the "big game" and his team walked off the bus at a school more than 50 miles from home.  He watched his kids march into the school, past a sea of fans from his school cheering them on and encouraging them as they walked into the building.  His players stood tall, dressed nicely to represent their community with class, and walked through the crowd and they had their game faces on.  He remarked that not one player acknowledged a single fan.  Some kept their headphones in on their ipods and didn't even look up at the fans.  Now some coaches may have liked that because they were focused, but instead this coach followed his team into the locker room and told them how disappointed he was.  These people drove all that way to support them and his team couldn't wave to a few of them, say hello or better yet say thank you for coming to the game.  The coach ordered every player to make their way back toward the bus and just say thank you to a few of the people who came to the game.  There is certainly a time and place for this type of interaction.  When you are taking the field or the court, your focus needs to be on the matter at hand.  But, when the game is over or well before it starts, remember to thank those who are cheering and supporting you.  When a classmate tells you they were at the game and complements you on how you played, be humble and turn it back to them.  Recognize their support probably filled you and your teammates emotional gas tanks.  So as the athletic director I want to say thank you to everyone who supports our students and we hope we continue to make you proud to be a Whitman-Hanson Panther.

Now to the update......
1) The boys soccer team had a huge week winning two games and tying another.
The highlight of the week was a thrilling 1-0 victory over Hingham, marking the first time the boys have ever defeated the Harbormen.  After an end to end 73 minutes of action, Brian McGahan scored off a cross from Kyle Nehiley with 7 minutes remaining. Goalkeepers Connor Keane and Jack Bannon made some outstanding saves to ensure the Panther Victory.  McGahan had a huge week with 4 goals.  The boys travel to Scituate on Tuesday to take on the Sailors.

2) The girls soccer team suffered their first loss of the season by falling on the road at Hingham but they rebounded with a 4-0 shutout win over Plymouth South on Friday to improve to 5 and 1.  The defense of Kelsey Gilbert, Elana Wood, Katherine O'kane, Madison Shea and Katie Korzec helped goalkeeper Arianna Comendul earn her 4th shutout of the season. After a scoreless first half Lauren Bonavita (2 goals), Taylor Kofton, and Eve Montgomery found the back of the net for Whitman Hanson.

3) In boys cross country, Patrick Brett won his third consecutive Patriot League outing in leading the Panthers to a 19-36 win over Duxbury High Tuesday afternoon.  Brett covered the 3 Mile course in 17:04 edging out Duxbury's Tate Allen who finished 2nd in 17:11.  The next four spots went to W-H runners Junior Sam Evans (17:24), Sophomore Lukas Moscoso (17:36), Freshman Jack Ryan (17:49) and Junior Jayson Keenan (17:55.)

The boys host Plymouth North on Tuesday.

4) The girls cross country team swept the top 5 spots in beating Duxbury 15-46 Tuesday afternoon on the 3.0 Mile Duxbury High School course.  Junior Samantha Coletti led the Panthers with a time of 18:52.  Senior Captains Kelsey Tierney and Caroline Mulrey took 2nd and 3rd with identical times of 20.35, followed by Senior Captain Megan Concannon and Junior Abbie Newman who rounded out the scoring for W-H also with identical times of 21:13. 
The girls also host Plymouth-North on Tuesday in a battle between two of the top teams in the state.  This will be a very tough meet and the girls could really use some Panther support.

5) The volleyball team had an up and down week putti.  On Friday they lost to Hingham, 3-0 but earlier in the week they swept Plymouth North, 3-0.  The Panthers came out fast against the Eagles behind strong serving by Madison Scott and Alyssa Gacicia. The Panthers were able to keep Plymouth at bay for most of the first set with good passing and a strong attack from the middle and outside hitters. In the second set the Panthers started out with some really sloppy play and bad passing out of serve receive, but they were able to rally from behind to steal the lead and never looked back. In the third and deciding set Leah Pedersen, Hannah Brett and Erin Clifford served for multiple ace's and kept the Eagles from getting their offense going. This was a great team win for the Panthers as every player contributed to the win. Standing out were Leah Pedersen with 6 kills, Erin Clifford with 6 kills, 4 aces and 12 digs. Madison Scott also added 7 aces. Alyssa Gacicia had her best night as our starting setter with 22 assists.
The girls play host to Plymouth South tomorrow.

6) The golf team won 2 of 3 this week to improve to 6 and 2.  The Panthers defeated the Quincy Presidents at Furnace Brook Golf Club 243-288.  Junior Cole Manning carded a 1-over 36 to lead all scorers, while senior Sam Perkins followed him as second lowest scorer on the day with a 3-over 38. 
The quirky course gave some players trouble, but with the help of seniors Alex Burbank (5-over) and co-captain Zach Burke (7-over), the Panthers were able to celebrate their 6th win on the season.  This week should seriously test the squad as they face an unknown Martha's Vineyard, league powerhouse Duxbury (who are looking for the sweep on the season), and an up-and-coming Pembroke team.

7) The field hockey team won their first two games of the year this week.  The girls have improved dramatically since the start of the year and it looks like this team is building the foundation for future success.  The girls donated their time at the kids fitness festival Saturday to teach the future Panthers about the game.  The girls return to play tomorrow at home on the turf. The black group plays at 4:45pm against Hingham and the white group will play at 6pm.

8) The football team had a bye this week but they had a very busy week.  The entire coaching staff took the kids to the Hanover movie theatre to see "When the Game Stands Tall."  This is a tremendous movie for student athletes in any sport as it focuses on a team from California which set the record for the most consecutive wins in football.  There are so many relevant messages for students and parents in this movie.  A lot of it goes back to what I mentioned off the top.  In addition, the teams were "treated" to an incredible leadership training session by the United States Marines.  The team was put through various endurance and strength challenges which had to be completed in small groups.  The kids learned the importance of being there for one an other, especially when things get tough.  Most of the players enjoyed being challenged and we believe came away from the experience even closer as a team.  
The Panthers return to action this Friday night at home against a very tough Quincy team in their first league game of the season.

Volleyballs Loses 3-0

>
>
> Hingham came into Whitman-Hanson tonight and beat the Panthers 3-0. Game scores were 19-25, 11-25 and 17-25. The Panthers started the game much the way they finished with errors in serve receive and defense. Hingham got out to an early lead but Whitman-Hanson hung around thanks to solid play out of Sophie O'Brien in the middle. Ultimately the Hingham attack was too much for the Panthers and they pulled away for the win in the first set. In the second set the Panthers came out flat and allowed Hingham to get out to a big 7-0 lead. The Panthers were never able to rein Hingham in due to really sloppy passing and hitting from all over the court. In the third and deciding set the Panthers could get nothing going out of their offense and allowed Hingham to drive the game with their attack. Whitman-Hanson falls to 2-4 on the season and gets ready to host Plymouth South on Monday.

Girls Soccer Rebounds



The Whitman Hanson girls' soccer team improved to 5-1 with a 4-0 shutout win over Plymouth South. The defense of Kelsey Gilbert, Elana Wood, Katherine O'kane, Madison Shea and Katie Korzec helped goalkeeper Arianna Comendul earn her 4th shutout of the season. After a scoreless first half Lauren Bonavita (2 goals), Taylor Kofton, and Eve Montgomery found the back of the net for Whitman Hanson.

The Panthers played their strongest game so far this season and are now 3 – 2 in the Patriot League.   Goalkeeper Jack Bannon made some outstanding saves in the 2nd half to ensure the Panther Victory.  This was a great team effort.




Tough Day at Widows Walk

The WH golf team lost their 2nd match of the season today at Widow's Walk against Scituate, 276-261. Although both teams played hard, the course definitely got the best of both sides.

The medalist for the match was Cole Manning who shot an impressive 2-over par 39 at a very challenging course. Unfortunately, that was the lone bright spot of the day for the Panthers. The team has lost to the Sailors in the past 3 matches in as many years. Despite the heartbreaker today, they are continuing to be positive about their play.


Tomorrow, WH travels to Furnace Brook Golf Course to face Quincy.

Update from WH Athletics


The Whitman-Hanson captains council has been doing excellent work and displaying outstanding leadership over many years.  This current group of student leaders have been meeting regularly to expand their own leadership skills and to discuss ways of enhancing the athletic experience for everyone involved.  While we look at being a captain as an honor, we also recognize that these students have been called upon to serve, not be served.   

Our captains council has been discussing ways to improve sportsmanship by our athletes, students and parents.  Cross Country captain Caroline Mulrey represented Whitman-Hanson at the MIAA summer leadership program at Stonehill College.  She came back with the idea that every sport should have a student centered and delivered message at each contest.  While we have done this in some sports in the past, we have not done it at all events. 

This past week, the captains gathered to discuss the project and over the last several days, they wrote and recorded more than 60 messages which will be played prior to and during sporting events here at the high school.  For sports where we do not have the capability of playing a recorded message, the captains will read their message prior to the beginning of the contest.  In addition, the captains will be greeting visiting teams as they arrive at Whitman-Hanson and they will present the coach with a welcoming greeting as well as an information handout of all of the key people and facilities here at our school.  It is our hope that everyone who attends an event at Whitman-Hanson will come away recognizing that although we will do everything in our power to pursue excellence, we will always demonstrate character in that pursuit.

Another important project the captains have been working on is the idea of community service.  Every year, each athletic team performs a community service project.  This will continue and we look forward to seeing all of our students grow from the experience of service.  This year though, we are gathering together as a unified group, the entire athletic department, to perform a day of service in each of our towns.  This special day will take place on October 19th.

The captains council will be on hand at the 9th annual Kids Fitness Festival on Saturday September 20th from 11am-2pm on the front fields here at the high school.  This fantastic community event is produced by the Panther Education Trust and promises to be a great afternoon.  There will be free healthy food samples, a DJ, dance and cheerleading performances, a moonwalk, police cars and fire trucks, parachute games, face painting, an obstacle course and much more.  The high school captains will be on hand to provide several sports clinics and to sign autographs for our future Panthers.  We hope to see everyone there.

And now to our weekly update –
1)      The football team turned in a dominating performance on Friday, cruising past Pembroke before a packed house, 43-16.  Junior quarterback Nick Smith threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more. For the night he ran for 67 yards and threw for 110.  Senior Joey Tanner stepped in at running back due to injuries and ran for 98 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown.  The most exciting play of the night was a 76 yard touchdown pass from Smith to Junior Peter Amado.  Mickey Martell continued his impressive play on special teams by recovering a punt for the touchdown.  The Panthers have a bye this week before returning home for their first league game of the season when they host Quincy on Friday September 26th.
2)      If you look up the word domination in the dictionary you might find a picture of the girls soccer team.  They have looked absolutely unstoppable through the first 3 games of the season.  They have used a balanced attack to win their first 3 games by a combined score of 16-1.  Junior Alexis Fruzetti netted the team’s second hat trick of the season (Taylor Kofton turned the trick in the opener) in leading the Panthers to the 6-0 win over Silver Lake on Thursday.  The defense of Jill Shangold, Katie Korzec, Katherine O'Kane and Elana Wood helped goalkeeper Arianna Comendul earn her second shutout of the season.  Earlier in the week freshman Lauren Bonavita paced the win over Duxbury with two goals.  The girls are back in action tomorrow night (Monday 9/15 at 6:30pm) at home against Plymouth North.
3)      The boys soccer team has played outstanding soccer in the early going but unfortunately have suffered two heartbreaking losses in the second half to Duxbury and Silver Lake this week to drop their record to 1 and 2.  The Panthers were scoreless at defending champions Silver Lake on Thursday when the Lakers snapped the stalemate with just 3 minutes to play.  Coach Barrington is optimistic that they team will start to find the win column if they keep up this effort and pace.  They will be back in action tomorrow at 4:45pm.
4) The golf  team is turning some heads in the Patriot League storming out to a  4 and 1 record.  They won all 3 matches this week including a 218-241 win over  North. The 218 round was their lowest score in more than a decade.  They followed that up by beating perennial league power Hingham, 221-230.  Junior Cole Manning has led the way in every match this year.  He carded a career best 3-under against the Harbormen while Senior captain Josh Kelleher and senior Cam Manning were both 2 over.  The team plays  host to Plymouth South on Tuesday at Ridder Country Club.
5) The girls cross country team remained undefeated with a convincing 18-54 victory over Plymouth South.  The team was led by Junior Sam Coletti who won her second league race in a week. Coletti covered the 3 Mile course in 18:54, helping the Panthers defeat Plymouth South 16-46. W-H finished with 5 runners in the top 6 finishers. Senior Co-Captains Kelsey Tierney and Caroline Mulrey tied for second place with identical times of 20:23, followed by Senior Co-Captain Megan Concannon who placed 4th in 20:50. Junior Abbie Newman rounded out the scoring for Whitman-Hanson placing 6th in 21:08. Natalie Hansen of Plymouth South was Plymouth South's top runner finishing 5th in 20:59.  The girls travel to Duxbury on Tuesday.
6) The W-H Boys cross country team also easily beat Plymouth South, 20-35. Senior Captain Patrick Brett, who won his second race of the season, finished first for Whitman-Hanson in 17:07, just ahead of teammate Junior Jayson Keenan at 17:08. Junior Sam Evans and Sophomore Lukas Moscoso finished 4th and 5th respectively for Whitman-Hanson with times of 17:28 and 17:29, while Freshman Jack Ryan also scored for the Panthers with an 8th place finish in 18:23. Plymouth South's Drew Mahoney was his team's top finisher placing 3rd with a time of 17:16.  The boys travel to Duxbury on Tuesday.
7) The Panthers Volleyball team had their home opener against Silver Lake Friday and lost a great back and forth contest, 3-2. The set scores were 25-22, 24-26, 22-25, 25-22 and 4-15. Whitman Hanson came out strong in the first set getting out to an early lead but as was the case throughout the match the Panther's sloppy play allowed the Lakers to come back in every game. The Panther's fought hard in the third set to rally back to tie the game at 24-24 but ultimately ran out of steam and couldn't close out the set. In the fourth set the Panther's rallied back after getting down early. In the fifth and deciding set the Panther's came out really flat and just couldn't keep pace with the Laker attack. Stand out players for the Panthers tonight were Erin Clifford with 10 kills and 5 aces; Sophie O'Brien with 6 kills and 2 blocks; and Madison Scott who helped get us several leads throughout the match with her serve had 7 aces and 11 digs. The Panthers play at North Quincy on Monday.
8) The field hockey team continues to play outstanding defense. No team has scored more than 2 goals against them in a game this year.  Kristin Arthur netted the team’s first every goal in the game against Duxbury on Friday.  Sarah Conant had the assist on the goal while Caroline Woodward had 5 saves for the Panthers.  The girls play a doubleheader on Tuesday in the home openers beginning at 4:45pm.

WH Girls Soccer Dominates Again




Junior Alexis Fruzzetti led the way with a hat trick as Whitman Hanson improved to 3-0 with a 6-0 shutout over Silver Lake. Two of Fruzzetti's goals came in the first half off of assists from Freshman Eve Montgomery ( 2 assists) and Junior Lindsey Anderson. With the score 2-0 at the half Whitman Hanson erupted for four second half goals. Fruzzetti netted her third while Freshman Taylor Kofton and Freshman Lauren Bonavita (2 goals) accounted for the rest of the scoring. The defense of Jill Shangold, Katie Korzec, Katherine O'Kane and Elana Wood helped goalkeeper Arianna Comendul earn her second shutout of the season.

 

 





Boys soccer plays tough but falls short




The Whitman Hanson Boys Soccer Team played their best game of the season against Silver Lake today.  Although the Panthers lost in the last 3 minutes of the game, this was a battle till the end.

At halftime the score was 0 – 0 with both teams having opportunity.  The feisty Panthers continued battling until the 77th minute when the ball was kicked out of the goalie's hand to give Silver Lake a 1 goal lead with 3 minutes remaining.  The goal was scored by Patrick Hutchinson.  The final S/L goal was scored by Brendan Guilderson with 7 seconds left in the game.  There were many standouts for the Panthers, I am very proud of how them handled themselves in this highly contested match.




Golf pulls off the big win

Whitman-Hanson loses 3-0 at Duxbury

>
>
> Whitman-Hanson traveled to Duxbury tonight and despite great effort by the team lost 3-0. Game scores were 25-15, 25-12 and 25-16. The Panthers got solid play out of Senior Outside Hitter Erin Clifford who had 5 kills and 10 digs. Also playing well tonight was Libero Sophia Raiche who had 13 digs and 12 successful serve receives. The Duxbury offense was clicking on all cylinders coming out of the middle and outside attacks and really limited the Panthers ability to get into our offensive sets. Whitman-Hanson plays at home on Friday against Silver Lake.

Update From WH Athletics

It is great to be back to school and we are excited for another year of Whitman-Hanson athletics. The student-athletes have been working hard, not just since we started up three weeks ago, but most have been putting in an incredible effort since the day their seasons ended a year ago. Here is a quick update -



1) The girls cross country team began defense of their Patriot League Championship by giving new head coach Steve George his first Whitman-Hanson win by defeating Pembroke, 25-32. Junior Samantha Coletti, with a wire-to-wire first place finish over the 5K course in 19:34, downed Pembroke 25-32. Behind Coletti were the Senior Co-Captains Caroline Mulrey (2nd, 20:53), Kelsey Tierney (4th, 21:44) and Megan Concannon (6th, 22:27.) Freshman Nicole Norve (12th, 28:10) rounded out the scoring for the the Whitman Girls. In the Boys race, Senior Co-Captain Patrick Brett's first varsity victory wasn't enough for the Panthers, who were defeated 22-39. Brett covered the course in 18:00, 13 seconds ahead of a trio of Norwell runners. Junior Sam Evans placed 5th in 18:43. Sophomore Lukas Moscoso (8th, 19:22), Freshman Jack Ryan (12th, 20:32) and Senior Co-Captain Josh Long were the other runners scoring for Whitman-Hanson.



2) Our girls soccer team looked impressive in their season debut on Thursday night by beating North Quincy 5-1. Whitman Hanson got on the board three minutes in to the second half when Freshman Taylor Kofton put home a rebound from a Rachel Kelley shot. Kofton followed that with her second goal just two minutes later when she got on the end of an Alexis Fruzzetti cross. North Quincy cut the lead in half when Ali Coleman got on the end of a free kick. The score remained 2-1 with 8 minutes left and then Whitman Hanson erupted for 3 goals. Kofton completed the hat trick with a left footed blast and Taylor Robertson and Alexis Fruzzetti rounded out the scoring. Arianna Comendul made 10 saves in the Whitman Hanson net. Molly Kate Cannon played a strong game for North Quincy.



3) The Whitman Hanson Boys Soccer Team won their Patriot League opening game of the season at North Quincy tonight. The Panthers game winning goal was scored by Antonio Centeio on an assist by Jared Pendrak in the 36th minute of the first half. The Panthers controlled much of the play in both halves hitting the post 3 times. This was a well-rounded effort by the offense and defense. The shut out is credited to Goalies Conor Keane and Jack Bannon and the defensive unit.



4) The football team opened its season on Friday night and looked much improved from a year ago but still dropped a close one falling to Plymouth South 18-17. Junior Nick Smith threw two touchdown passes - one to Senior Mike Lenane and the other to Liam Sweeney. Sophomore Jason Bosse carried the ball 18 times for 118 yards. Senior Joey Tanner had an incredible stretch of plays late in the game by booting a perfect punt that settled at the one yard line. He followed that up on the first play from scrimmage by tackling the Plymouth South ball carried in the end zone for the safety cutting the deficit to one. Unfortunately, that was as close as Whitman-Hanson would get. The Panthers will be looking to pick up their first win of the year Friday night when WH plays host to former coach Bob Bancroft's Pembroke Titans at 7pm at Dennis M. O'Brien field.



5) The golf team split their first two contests of the year falling to league power Duxbury on the road, 233-250 and beating Silver Lake at Ridder Country Club, 235-251. Junior Cole Manning led the way with two even par rounds (36 and 34). Senior Sam Perkins was solid against Silver Lake with a 4-over 38. The team has a busy week ahead playing Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.



6) Field hockey returned to Whitman-Hanson for the first time in more than 30 years when the Lady Panthers travelled to Middleboro. It was a tremendous effort but the girls came up short by a score of 2-0. The team, which is coached by Whitman-Hanson math teacher Todd Humphrey, plays its first home game tomorrow (Monday September 8th) at 4:45pm against Silver Lake.



7) The volleyball team has been working hard and the girls are excited to finally open the season on Tuesday at Pembroke High School.





Finally, a reminder that the fitness center is now open daily from 1:45pm-4:45pm. Our fitness coach, Russell Nolan, is there to help design a plan for each student. In addition, Yoga returns on Mondays and Wednesdays at 3:30pm in the Cafeteria beginning 9/15. This is open to all students. If you would like to attend, please signup outside of room 159. Also, don't forget that the concession stand has healthy and affordable choices for an after school lunch or snack.
