Weekly Update

As most of you are aware, the Hanson Board of Selectmen voted last week to close all of our fields at dusk each night over the fear of the threat mosquitos pose as it relates to Triple E.  The actual time that defines dusk will become earlier each week which will affect schedules of all teams, even if they were not scheduled to play at night.  Because we have limited field space, we will have to improvise in some cases.  For example, we will play the freshmen field hockey game at 3pm on Thursday without game officials (the association cannot provide referees at that time).  Please follow us on twitter @whathletics to be sure you get the latest information as it relates to schedule changes.
Also, while we do not see mosquitos at our fields it still makes sense to take those common sense precautions we have been promoting even during those afternoon practices.  Parents are advised to pack some of the repellent wipes in your child's backpack and have them apply it daily.

Here are some highlights from the week in Panther Nation:

1) The boys and girls cross country teams started the season with victories at home over Plymouth South.  
On the girls side, Sophomore Myah Kamperides' first place finish downed visiting Plymouth South 23-34 Wednesday afternoon.  Kamperides covered the 5K course in 21:31.  Other Panthers scoring included Senior Captain Tori Boss (3rd, 22:47), Senior Niki Kamperides (5th, 22:57), Junior Bryn Miller (6th, 23:10) and Sophomore Anna Flynn (8th, 23:19.)  
In the boys race,  Theo Kamperides powered past Plymouth South's Strickland Davis to lead WH to the 25-34 win.  Kamperides covered the 5K course in 16:42with Davis taking second in 16:43.  Also scoring in the victory for Whitman-Hanson (1-0) were Senior Captain Brandon Hager (4th, 17:42), Sophomore Nathan Tassey (5th, 17:56), Junior Chris MacDonald (7th, 18:11) and Junior Liam Cafferty (8th, 18:39.) 

2) The girls soccer team has come just as advertised with their biggest win of the young season coming against Patriot league rival Hingham, 4-0.  Four different players scored for the Panthers. In the first half Ava Melia scored off a 25yd blast and the 1-0 score held through the half. WH doubled the lead when Nora Manning headed home an Anika Floeck cross. Kelsee Wozniak took a Olivia Borgen pass and beat a Hingham defender for the third goal and Alexis Billing struck a low shot to the corner for the 4-0 score. The Whitman Hanson defense of Ava Melia, Sam Perkins, Erin Wood, Courtney Woodward and Abby Carew were outstanding in helping goal keepers Kylee Colclough and Reese Codero earn the shutout. The Panthers will face league opponent Plymouth North on Monday at the new time of 5pm.

3) The boys team looks much improved from a year ago but the wins have been tough to come by so far despite playing well.  The team lost a heartbreaker at Hingham in the final minute on Wednesday but did come back in thrilling fashion to earn a 1-1 tie at Cohasset on Friday. In the 79th minute, Peyton Collins fed fellow junior Brendan Nehiley for the equalizer. The boys return to action tomorrow (Monday) at Plymouth North.

4) One of the most exciting teams of the fall so far has been our volleyball team which is off to a 3-1 start.  The highlight of the week, was a 3-0 home win over Scituate.  
Senior Marissa Connell led the team in kills with 5. Junior Delaney Rowell and sophomore Lily Welch were not far behind with 4 kills each. The panther's defense was unstoppable with a total of 19 solo blocks, Connell and sophomore Abby Martin contributing 5 each. Junior Sophia Berardinelli was another crucial player, tallying 8 assists. Berardinelli also tallied a kill for the team, something not usually seen from a setter.

5)The Field Hockey team made some history earning their first ever point against Duxbury playing to. 1-1 tie.  The Panthers scored first about half way through the first. Junior forward Robin Goyette gets her first goal of the year. The Dragons scored in the first half as well to tie the game up at one at half time and thanks to a solid effort from the defense that is how the game finished.  

6)The young Panther football team has struggled with turnovers through the first two games and as a result WH sits at 0-2 after failing at home to Hanover Friday night, 20-10.  Junior Jason Murphy hit Senior Jonathan Zeidan on a 13 yard td pass early in the game but that was the only touchdown of the night for the Panthers.  Sophomore Will Stanford led the offense with 103 yards.

7) The golf team has a lot of young talent and while the wins have been scarce in the early going there have been many strong performances.  The highlight of the young season was a 272-297 win over North Quincy.  Junior Aidan Miller was the top player in the match with a 4 over 40.

Field Hockey 9/05

The Whitman Hanson Field Hockey Panthers played on the road against the Plymouth North Eagles and lost 2-1.  The Eagles were able to capitalize early off of a penalty corner early in the first half, and before half time they were able to score again.  The Panthers were doing all they could to slow down the explosive Eagle offense.  Skylar Leonard, defense for the Panthers, was a stand out by taking the ball from the Eagle forwards on the right side of the field.  The second half was played with intensity by both clubs.  The Panthers were able to get a goal late in the game by Captain Lauren Clark.  The game ended with the Eagles on top 2-1.

Volleyball Tryouts Changed


We are all very excited about the upcoming volleyball season which all kicks off tomorrow with tryouts.  We do have a little bump in the road as the humidity and weather pushed the gym floor project back a little bit.  Wait until you see the floor, it’s amazing and volleyball gets to be the first sport to play on it!

But, with the delay, we cannot hold tryouts at the high school tomorrow as planned but should be able to on Friday.  Tomorrow, Thursday 8/22, we will be at Whitman Middle school with freshmen practicing 11:30am-1pm and everyone else from 1pm-4pm.  We understand that some of you may have conflicts after 2pm as that was the time you were told you would be done. If that is the case, you may leave at 2pm without penalty. We are hoping everyone can make it for the entire time, but we understand this is a last minute change.

Also, as of this email,  13 students do not have up to date physicals on file.  It is highly recommended that everyone shows up with a copy of their most recent physical to avoid any problems.  Very often, students assume they are all set but their physical is missing or out of date.  If you have a copy with you, you cant go wrong.  We also have many students who do not have up to date impact tests.  Please go online at www.whathletics.com and take the test now.  All freshmen and juniors had to take it this year.  Also any senior or sophomore who is new also has to take it as the tests are good for two years.

We wish you all good luck tomorrow.  Do your best and have fun.

Dear Parents,
I hope you and your family are enjoying summer.  It will not be long before we are returning to school and I wanted to touch base again to encourage all students to explore the possibility of joining an athletic team this school year.  Being on a team is a great way to make friends, learn important life lessons, give students a productive use of their free time and make memories that will last a lifetime.  We have room for students of all abilities levels in a wide array of athletic offerings.  Most of these sports do not have cuts and the coaches welcome players regardless of their experience.  To see a full list of what we offer click on this link which also includes coach contact info which you can use to direct any sport specific questions - https://onedrive.live.com/view.aspx?resid=E88DFA4145281542!2334&ithint=file%2cdocx&authkey=!APnzYPO5qMir8fs .

Football begins on 8/16 while all other fall sports begin on 8/22.  All students who want to play a sport in any season next school year must attend our athletic first night program along with at least one parent on Sunday August 18th at 5pm in the high school PAC.

If your child does want to play a sport this school year please take a moment to take of the checklist below.  Anyone who does not complete the online permission slip before 8/1 will have to sit out the first day or practice and tryouts so in order to make sure you do not miss this deadline, please take care of this asap.  Here is the full checklist – regardless of what sports season you plan to play please take care of the bullet points below today.

1.       Parents fill out the online permission slip before 8/1 located on this link -   https://fs17.formsite.com/WHathletics/form57/index.html
2.       Make sure your child’s physical is up to date and you have a hard copy available.  All fall athletes are expected to hand their coach a copy of their physical on the first day of tryouts even if they think the school has it on file and even if it has already been mailed in.  Physicals expire exactly 13 months from the day the phsyical was conducted and only an official doctor’s office physical form is accepted.  We do not accept a doctor’s note.  It must be the physical form.  We suggest all students take a picture of their physical form and keep it on their phone. 
3.       All students must take the online impact test which can be found at www.whathletics.com .  The test is good for two years so usually its freshmen, juniors and first time athletes who have to take it.
4.       Make sure all past due fees are paid.  You do not have to pay this years user fee until one week after the roster is set. However, students are no longer allowed to tryout with a balance from the previous school year unless there are extenuating circumstances.  If that is the case, please email me so we can work out a plan.  In order to see your child’s balance log in to infinite campus and click on fees. If you do have any outstanding balance, you can pay it with a credit or debit card by clicking on this link - https://fs17.formsite.com/WHathletics/form52/index.html
5.       Students must have earned 20 credits this past school year in order to be eligible to play both the fall and winter seasons.  Summer school credits do count toward this total.

If you have any questions or if I can be of any help please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email or phone.

Enjoy the rest of the summer.

2019 WH Athletics Hall of Fame Class



                                                                                                            July 10, 2019

Whitman-Hanson Regional High School is pleased to announce the formation of the first ever athletic hall of fame with the first class of inductions to take place October 6, 2019 at 5pm at Pembroke Country Club.  Tickets are available for purchase online at www.whathletics.com .

A committee of more than a dozen current and former coaches, parents, community members and former students reviewed more than 50 nominations for this first induction class and voted to enshrine 11 people into the Whitman-Hanson Athletic Hall of Fame.

“It was such a great experience learning about all of the amazing student athletes who were nominated for induction.  This first class is very special but represents only a fraction of the deserving candidates,”  Whitman-Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said.  “We will be holding inductions every other year so we will advertise for more nominations sometime next winter while the existing nominations will stay included in the process.”

In September, we will release a detailed biography of each inductee.  In no particular order here is the Hall of Fame Class of 2019

That's A Wrap


Well that’s a wrap on the 2018/2019 WH Athletic season which saw a record 1,003 roster spots filled by 606 different students.  More than half of our student population participated in some level of athletics this school year.  As impressive as those numbers are though, I believe we can go even higher.  We believe that every student could benefit from being a part of an athletic team.  It doesn’t matter your athleticism or skill level, we have a something for all students.  The entire list of offerings can be found at www.whathletics.com .  To parents, if your son or daughter doesn’t currently participate please consider discussing it with them. 

Everyone who would like to participate next school year, should have their parents go to www.whathletics.com and fill out the online permission slip as soon as possible.  These lists are shared with coaches and they often communicate information about the team using these lists.  All student athletes and their parents should be reminded that there is a mandatory Athletic First Night meeting on Sunday August 18th at 5pm in the PAC at the high school.

Captains are reminded that the council meetings have been set for the summer.  If you did not attend last meeting you should contact Coach Rodgers at robert.rodgers@whrsd.org.  The next meeting is tomorrow (Monday 6/17 at noon in the library).

Finally, a very important reminder to all students that in order to be eligible to play sports next school season, you must have earned 20 credits this school year.  Anyone who failed to meet that threshold is ineligible to participate in athletics until the spring season as the next marking period of record doesn’t take place until semester one in January.  If you failed to reach the 20 credit mark, you may be eligible for summer school or other credit recovering options.  Speak with your guidance counselors as soon as possible.

We hope everyone has a safe and productive summer.  Remember, it’s the work you put in over the next couple of months that will determine your success in your next season.  Success leaves clues….look at the players and teams that have enjoyed the level of success that you want to emulate.  Are you working as hard as they did? Can you work even harder?  If you truly want it, you will.  Enjoy the summer!
