Only 4 sports left in February Vacation Program

 There are only 4 spots left in the boys basketball February vacation program. Once they are filled, we will open a waiting list. There is still room in the girls program. See the info below if you are interested.

We are once again running our February vacation basketball experience which is one of our best activities of the year for young and aspiring players. This program has sold out every year so do not wait to sign up. This year the girls program is also offering a one day clinic on Thursday 2/23. You can find the link for signups at www.whathletics.com or this link will take you directly to the sign up page
Here is how the boys program runs:
Open to grades 1-8
On Monday February 20th, the kids arrive at 9am and have camp all day until 2:30pm (younger campers will watch a movie midway through the day). Tuesday, campers will arrive at 1pm and have basketball camp activities until 4:30pm. At this time, the kids will go to the cafeteria where they will enjoy a pizza dinner (included in the cost of the camp). After dinner, they will watch a movie in the performing arts center. When the movie is over, they will move into the gym and watch the boys basketball team take on Brockton in the opening round of the Panther Winter Classic. The kids will be supervised by our JV and Freshmen players as well as the coaches. We believe this part of our program really helps light the fire for our future players to want to someday be a part of our program.

 It's been a great winter season with many of our teams on pace to qualify for the post season.  The MIAA now uses power rankings in hockey and basketball.  They are posted every Tuesday and Friday at 11am at www.miaa.net.  The ranking is determined by a team's margin of victory and the strength of schedule as determined by their margins of victory.  This system has been a bit controversial.  Our league principals and athletic directors have voted unanimously to ask the MIAA to eliminate the MOV component as it does not promote sportsmanship or participation.  The state basketball committee also recently voted to eliminate the MOV but was rebuffed by the tournament management committee.  The TMC is expected to review the power ranking formula sometime in the spring. 

The boys hockey team was ranked 5th in the most recent release and a big reason for that has been the play of our senior captain Matt Solari.  Matt has 10 goals and 10 assists this season and in the Panthers win against Nashoba, he collected his 100th career point.  In 70 games,  he has 58 goals, 46 assists for 104 points.

The team improved to 8-6 (3-6 in the Patriot League) with a 7-1 win over Plymouth North Saturday.  Solari and Billy Morgan each scored twice and Freshman Nicholas Zaccaria had 28 saves.  Joe Culley had a powerplay goal while Zach Boss and Zakk Spano also scored.

The girls hockey team is also having a great season improving to 8-3 with a 1-0 win over Norwell Saturday.  Chloe Duff, assisted by Cam Dematos and Jules Connors provided the scoring while Sadie Watchorn recorded her third straight shutout.

Whitman-Hanson Wrestling hosted a Quad meet Saturday and came away with 3 impressive victories. Round 1 saw WH defeat Boston Latin Academy 54-27, Round 2 it was WH 42 and Hanover 36. WH finished off the day beating Rockland 60-24. Winning for WH included Freshmen PJ Katz at 106 pounds with 3 wins on the day pinning 2 and winning one by forfeit. PJ is now 19-2 on the season with 12 pins. Wrestling at 113 pounds was Sophomore Charlie Lussier who won all 3 of his matches by pin. Charlie is now 32-1 on the season with 27 pins. Sophomore Christian Grimaldi wrestling at 120 pounds also won all 3 of his matches with 2 pins and 1 forfeit today, giving him a record of 28-8 on the season with 22 pins. Wrestling at 126 pound Freshman Tristan Forest had a great day with 2 pins and 1 forfeit to his credit. Tristan is now 7-14 on the year with 4 pins. Junior Austin Gamber wrestling at 132 pounds had a great day by pinning all 3 of his opponents. Austin is now 24-6 on the season with 18 pins. Wrestling at 138 pounds was Senior Captain Braden Kain. Braden won all 3 of his matches today, 2 by pin and 1 by decision. Braden is now 37-3 on the year with 28 pins to his credit. The highlight of the day was at 145 pounds. Senior Captain Aidan Guiliani defeated defending Division 2 State Champion Anthony Mann of Hanover 1-0.  Aidan also had 1 pin and a  forfeit on the day. Aidan is now 32-2 on the season with 24 pins. Wrestling at 152 pounds Junior Jacob Metivier. Jake was 2-1 on the day with 2 pins to his credit. Jacob is 9-14 on the year with 6 pins. Sophomore Tim Donnally wrestling at 160 pounds was 1-2 on the day with 1 pin. Tim is now 3-20 on the season while recording his first pin of the year. Rounding out the winners for WH was Senior Captain Maddox Colclough at 285 pounds with 2 pins and 1 forfeit . Maddox is now 25-6 on the season with 20 pins. 

The girls basketball team holds a 2 game lead for first place with 5 league games left after going 1-1 this week.  The girls held off Hanover Tuesday, 45-40.  Senior captain Caitlin Leahy and Freshman Jenna Mishou each poured in a game high 12 points and Sophomore Taryn Leonard chipped in with 10.  The team is back in action Tuesday at home against Silver Lake.

The boys basketball team is also in first place but their lead is a slim one game with 5 to play. Freshman Isaiah Bean Brittian (18/11) and Sophomore Ryan Baker (17/10) both recorded a double double to lead Whitman-Hanson to a 51-40 win at Plymouth North.  Senior captain Drew Daley hit three big 3 pointers and finished the game with 11 points.  Senior captains Cole Champignie and Cam Burrows led the Panthers (9-5, 8-3) best defensive effort of the season.  The team travels to Silver Lake Tuesday.

The Whitman Hanson gymnastics team had 2 meets this week against Hanover and Marshfield. The girls have continued to push through injuries and keep improving each meet! Highlights include senior captain Steph Braga’s amazing vaults (8.5, 8.7). Steph has really stepped up to replace her injured teammates in the all-around as well. Other highlights include junior Morgan Astuto’s powerful vaults (8.6, 8.45) that have improved each week and senior captain Sarah Regan’s solid beam (8.1) and floor routines (8.1). Another huge help for the team is sophomore all-arounder Katelyn Ferraro’s consistent 8.5 vault scores and 8.2 floor routines. We were also happy to have freshman Paige Happeny back from injury at today’s meet where she posted an 8.2 floor score and 8.0 beam routine! The next meet will be our senior meet on Sunday, February 5th at 1:30 PM at our home gym in Pembroke.

 As we approach the holiday break, it is a good time of year to remind ourselves how lucky we are to live in such a wonderful community.  The number of alumni who come back and watch the various teams play is really amazing.  Panther nation gets bigger every year and the amount of pride people take being from Whitman and Hanson is truly special.  We want to take this time to wish everyone a very safe and happy holiday season.

And now let's update our winter sports teams.

A good place to begin is with our girls basketball team which has picked up right where they left off.  Despite graduating most of the team, the Panthers have reloaded with a lot of talented young players and they have jumped out to a 2-0 start.   Friday night the girls posted a 42-38 victory over Plymouth North (2-1). Freshman Jenna Mishou paced the Panthers with a team high 11 points off the bench. Sophomores Cassidy Briggs (10 points) and Lillie Mackinnon (8 points) were key to igniting the Panthers in the second half after trailing by 2 at halftime. The team is back on the road Tuesday night when they travel to Silver Lake. 

The boys basketball team is also young this year and they opened the season by surprising one of the top teams in the league when they beat Pembroke, 77-68 behind huge nights from Drew Daley and Evan Yakavonis (19 points apiece).  On Friday though the Panthers lost a heartbreaker by 1 point to Plymouth North despite a breakout performance from freshman Isaiah Bean-Brittain who exploded for 28 points.  The team will try to bounce back at home Tuesday night against Silver Lake.

Whitman-Hanson wrestling had a nearly perfect day at the Sandwich Early Bird Tournament Saturday. WH ended the day with 6 Champions and a 3rd and fourth place finish. We were a perfect record of 6-0 in the finals to secure a second place team finish behind Excel Academy who had 174 points to WH 160. Leading the way for WH was 106 pound sophomore Champion Charlie Lussier with 3 pins on the day. Charlie's record on the season is now 6-0 with 6 pins. At 113 pounds sophomore Christian Grimaldi also went 3-0 and also had 3 pins. Christian is now 6-2 on the season with 3 pins. Wrestling in the 132 pound finals was junior Austin Gamber. Austin went 4-0 on the day leading to his Championship and a season record of 7-2. At 138 pounds senior captain Braden Kain was 4-0 on the day leading to his Championship. Braden is now 8-1 on the season with 6 pins. At 145 pounds, senior captain Aidan Guiliani continued with a 3-0 day with 3 pins and is now 4-0 on the year with 3 pins. Rounding out the tournament for WH was senior captain Maddox Colclough at 285 pounds with a pin in the finals extending his season record to 2-0 with 2 pins. Freshmen PJ Katz wrestled at 106 pounds and went 3-1 on the day with 3 pins and finished in 3rd place. Rounding out the day was freshmen Tristan Foster wrestling at 126 pounds going 1-2 on the day and placing 4th.

Girls hockey is playing great in the early going posting a 1-1 record.  They lost a tough one to Duxbury Saturday when the Dragons scored late in the third to snap a scoreless deadlock.  Freshman goalie Sadie Watchhorn was sensational in net.  The girls opened the season with a thrilling 3-2 win over Marshfield.

The boys hockey team started with the iron of the league this year and suffered losses to both Duxbury and Marshfield.  Junior Zakk Spano gave the Panthers an early 1-0 lead Saturday over Marshfield but the Rams scored 5 unanswered despite Junior goalie Nolan Munroe turning in another good game stopping 36 Rams shots.  In Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Duxbury  Junior Alex Ethier scored twice for Whitman Hanson as the Panthers took a 2-1 lead into the third before Duxbury took control.
