RECAP WH Gymnastics Meet 1/16/18

Gymnastics: Whitman-Hanson vs Hingham & Cohasset-Norwell

In consistent fashion, Whitman-Hanson Panther gymnasts totaled a  127.7 and picked up their second win over non-league Cohasset-Norwell, but suffered their first Patriot League loss to Hingham (130.45).

Senior Britney Blackstone posted the competition's highest all-around performance (34.85), vault score (9.3) uneven bars score(8.75), and floor exercise score (8.8).  With a fall and a missed connection on beam, she put up the meet's fourth highest beam routine score (8.0). 

Sophomore Sarah Bombardier earned the meet's fourth highest all-around score (31.3).  She put up a personal best vault score (8.7) for second place.  She posted Whitman-Hanson's second highest uneven bars score (7.35) and the team's third highest floor score (8.0). 

Freshmen Savannah Poirier secured the Panther's second highest floor score (8.1) and third highest uneven bars score (7.1). 

Freshman Madison Scaccia performed a personal best vault for the team's third highest score on the event (8.0).

The team once again had some bobbles and wobbles on their last event of the evening, balance beam. Junior Erin McCoy, mainstay in the lead off position, strongly started the event with her fourth stuck beam routine of the season. Other beam routine sticks came from senior veterans Kaylee Torpey and Kaileigh Gordon who both scored a 7.8. Freshman Madison Scaccia also had a solid stuck beam routine to earn a 7.6.  

The team continues to be consistent with overall score which is wonderful, and there is always much more good than bad at each competition, but there is certainly room for improvement. We especially look forward to hitting the beam hard at our next practice and improving on our beam scores!

Girls Soccer Advances

The Whitman Hanson girls soccer team advanced to the south sectional finals with a 2-1 victory over Hingham. Hingham took the lead on a Caroline Harkins goal in the first half and that lead held up until midway through the second half when Lauren Bonavita took a 45yd pass from Samantha Smith and outraced the defender and placed the ball into the lower left corner. Both teams continued to battle and with a minute remaining, after a long throw by Delaney Hall, Bonavita collected an Eve Montgomery pass and fired home the shot for her second goal. The Panther defense of Sam Perkins, Samantha Smith, Elana Wood and Olivia Johnson were outstanding against the Hingham offense. Goalkeeper Skylar Kuzmich was outstanding making 16 saves in the Panther net.
