All participants signed up online prior to the start of tryouts are promised three days of nine holes of golf at no charge.  In order to be eligible, you must be academically eligible, as well as havingthe following completed:

 

1) An updated physical on record at the school, or a hard copy in hand
2) An up-to-date completed IMPACT test
3) A parent/guardian online registration completed

*There are no exceptions to these rules and any golfer without any one of these completed will not be able to tryout on the first day.

 

RESPECT FOR THE COURSE!

Because all golfers during the tryout period are given the opportunity to play golf for three days at no cost, we have to recognize and respect the generosity of Ridder Farm Golf Club. Should any candidate abuse their privilege, they will automatically be asked to leave the course and their tryout will immediately end.  For that reason, we ask that you please review the following rules and expectations:

 

1) All golfers must have their own equipment for tryouts – sharing clubs, golf balls, or any type of equipment is not allowed.
2) Please dress appropriately.  You must wear a collared shirt and no cuts offs of any kind are allowed.
3) Spectators are not allowed during the course of play for the tryout period, as well as during the season.
4) No caddies are allowed.  All golfers are expected to walk and carry their own bag, unless a medical note is provided.
5) Inappropriate language or acts are absolutely prohibited (i.e. swearing, shouting at others, throwing clubs, cheating of any kind, etc.).
6) Please keep pace of play up – pay attention to what's going on around you so you can take your shot in a time efficient and safe manner, as well as help those within your foursome find their ball to quicken play if necessary.
7) MOST IMPORTANTLY: Remember that you are not only representing yourself during this time, but your school and family as well.  Please show kindness and respect to any staff members at the course by using your manners and replacing ball marks and divots during your time on the course.  Without Ridder Farm, Whitman-Hanson would not have golf program, so please refrain from doing anything that may jeopardize that.

 

I really look forward to seeing you all on Thursday, as this year should prove to be a competitive tryout and season.  Please let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Thank you,

Update from WH Athletics

As we head into the final week of the regular season of the 2016/2017 WH Athletic season here is the very latest on our spring teams.

 

1)      The baseball squad became the fifth Whitman-Hanson team to win a league championship by holding of Silver Lake 6-5 on Saturday.  Senior Co-Captain Luke Tamulevich took the ball for just his second start of the season and went 5 plus innings leading the Panthers to their first league title since 2006.  The Keenan Division Champs answered after Silver Lake scored 1 run in the top of the first inning, as Tamulevich singled sharply to left, stole second, and scored on a Jason Green single.

Whitman-Hanson scored 5 runs in the bottom of the fourth to make the score 6-1 and then held on.  Senior John Murphy came in to relieve Tamulevich in the top of the sixth as Silver Lake came back and made the score 6-4.  S-L scored one in the top of the seventh before Murphy retired the side for the win and the league championship.  Whitman-Hanson is now 13-4 overall and finished 12-3 in the Keenan Division of the Patriot League. 

Fall Cheerleading, Winter Cheerleading, Girls Hockey and Boys Basketball are the other 4 teams to win titles this year. The baseball team has 3 games left in the regular season before beginning tournament play after Memorial Day.

2)      The softball team punched their post season ticket Friday by beating Quincy, 8-4.  The team collected 12 hits and defeated Quincy 8-4 to clinch a state tournament berth. Emily Cook and Colleen Hughes split the game on the mound and combined for 5 hits 4 RBIs and 4 Runs. Kelly Burke went 2-4 with an RBI 3B. Julia Donovan went 2-2 with an RBI and R.

3)      The girls lacrosse team certainly knows how to make things exciting.  They go into their senior night game Monday night needing to win this season finale in order to make the state tournament.  The highlight of the week was a 16-5 road win at Hull.  The WH defense combined with Kasey Molito in net (10 saves) held Hull to 1 goal in the second half. Leading the offense for the Panthers was Ali Joanis (4 goals) & Mel McAleer (5 goals, 5 assists). Also scoring to WH was Taylor McVeigh (2G), Zoe Lydon (1G, 1A), Mik White (2G, 1A), and Sami Whitman (1G). Annika Putur netted her first varsity goal, also. The girls go into Monday night’s game with a 9-10 record.

4)      The boys lacrosse team will play its senior night game on Tuesday when they play host to Weymouth.at 6:30pm.

At 1st doubles Hannah Faghan and Alyssa Holland won 8-2,8-5 and at 2nd doubles Mary Pulling and Lexi Connolly won 8-0,8-0! The Panthers play Rockland on Monday, then Abington on Wednesday and East Bridgewater on Saturday.  If the girls win all 3 matches they will qualify for the state tournament for the first time in recent memory.

6)      The boys tennis team has improved a lot since last season posting their 4th win of the season Friday.  The team picked up a doubleheader sweep over Quincy. The Panthers won both matches by a 5-0 score. Senior Dan Hickey won both his matches at #1 singles, both by 8-2 scores. Junior, Tyler Rice won both his matches by an 8-1 score at #2 singles. At # 3 singles, freshman Brian Fox won both matches 8-0, 8-2. At one doubles the Panthers got a pair of 8-4 victories from Matt Hickey and Eric Muha. Rounding things out at two doubles the pair of Jason Bannon and Sean Leahy battled back to win both of their matches by a 9-7 score.

Update from WH Athletics

It looks like we are finally headed into a good weather pattern which we hope is a good sign for our teams as many gear up for post season play.  Before we run through our recap, we wanted to remind parents and students that we will be holding our annual athletic college night this Thursday at 6:30pm in the small lecture hall.  This is a great program for juniors and seniors who are interested in playing sports in college.  We will cover a wide array of topics including: How to get recruited, how to find the right college, how to talk to college coaches, what are some of the turnoffs for college coaches in the recruiting process, benefits of so called showcases for exposure and much more.  This is a free program and open to parents and students.

 

1)    In tennis our girls team still has a solid shot at the post season but they still have their work cutout for them.  This is a big week with 4 matches, including  pro set match against Quincy on Friday which essentially counts as two contests.  The first challenge will be Monday at Silver Lake .  This weekend captain Kylie Corr competed in the individual tournament and showed outstanding grit by outlasting her opponent, 7-5, 7-5.  She was eliminated in the second round but we are all so proud of her for her performance.

2)    In boys tennis, the team is under 500 but they have shown a lot of improvement this season.  Captain Dan Hickey represented WH in the individual tournament where he gave his opponent all he could handle before dropping the match.

3)    The girls lacrosse team is on a nice roll and they control their own destiny in their quest to make the state tournament.    With 4 games left they have to win two.  On Friday, Taylor had 4 goals to go with 7 draw controls to set the pace. Zoe Lydon earned her hat trick all in the second half. Ali Joanis put 2 in the back of the net and Riley Bina also had a goal. The win brings WH to 8-8 on the season (4-4 league).   A great highlight from this week was a 9 goal outburst by Ali Joanis against Plymouth North.

4)    It’s been a difficult season for boys lacrosse as the team has suffered a lot of close losses and currently sit at 4 and 10.  Kyle Nehiley had two goals in Fridays loss at Silver Lake.  On Thursday the team lost to Plymouth North 8-7.  Scoring for WH were, Mason Gorman, Ryan Kennedy, Riley White, Scott Byron, Kyle Nehiley, Ryan Downing,  Mike Connors. Quinn Sweeney had 20 save.

5)    The baseball team dropped a couple of close games this week but they are still in the drivers seat for the league title.  The Panthers currently have a one game lead on Silver Lake who they are scheduled to host tomorrow (Monday) weather permitting.  If the game must be rescheduled it will be posted on twitter and the MIAA site.  The Panthers posted a very important 3-2 win at Hanover Saturday.    Senior Co-Captain Luke Tamulevich pitched a 3-hit gem in his first varsity start of the year to propel the Panthers into the state tournament for the second year in a row.  In their fourth game of the week, W-H scored 2 runs in the first inning after Tamulevich walked and went to third on a Jim Dolan Single. Tamulevich scored on a Mike Cook groundout and after Bob Caliri walked he and Dolan pulled off a double steal with Dolan scoring.  In the seventh Ethan Phelps went to second on a throwing error, was sacrificed to third by Dolan, and scored an insurance run on a deep sacrifice fly by Cook .  Caleb Burke, Ty Long and Ethan Phelps were outstanding on defense.  After beating Hanover, Whitman-Hanson is now 10-3 overall and 9-2 in the Patriot League.

6)    The softball team is one win away from clinching a tournament spot.  Jr Hailey Norris (2-4) hit a thrilling 3 run walk off HR to give WH  a 7-4 win over North Quincy on Thursday.  Watch a video of the walkoff on our twitter account @whathletics. So Kayla Crawford tied the game at 4 with a 1-out single. Kristin Arthur went 3-3 at the plate and scored. Kelly Burke (1-4) had an RBI double in the 7th. Sarah Saccardo, Emily Cook, and Colleen Hughes had multi-hit days for the Panthers.  

7)    In a close meet Duxbury slipped past the boys track team this week. Whitman-Hanson top performers Brett Holmes won the Long Jump, Triple Jump and finished second in the 100 and was on the winning 4x100 team, Alex Oroak won the Javelin and Jack Ryan won the 400 and the 4x100 team of Billy Martell, Holmes, Brian Edwards and Shane Walsh rounded out the winners for the Panthers.
