Summer Camps

Dear Parents,

We are excited to announce that our current plan is to offer the students of Whitman and Hanson summer athletic camps/clinics.  Of course, everything is subject to change pending where we are with the pandemic.  Please know that enrollment numbers are capped and most of these camps are likely to sell out, so if you want your child to participate, please sign up today as the spots will be filled on a first come basis.  Some camps are almost full already as they offer previous campers the first opportunity to register.

Our camps at Whitman Hanson are run by our head coaches and all of them donate a substantial portion of the proceeds (in some cases 100%) to their team.  We have found that these camps are a big reason why many of our teams have sustained success year after year.  Regardless of your child’s athletic ability, we believe the experience will be fun and rewarding.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Coach Driscoll Steps Down

 

                                                For Immediate Release          

 

Whitman Hanson Head Football Coach Mike Driscoll has announced his retirement after 10 years at the helm.  He will coach his final game tonight as the Panthers take on Hingham (he will not coach next week at Plymouth North due to his brother’s wedding).

 

“Mike has been an important figure in the lives of hundreds of Whitman Hanson students.  He was extremely dedicated and always ran a program that focused on character building and core educational athletic values,” Whitman Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said.  “I am grateful for having the opportunity to work with such a fine man and wish him the best as he devotes his time and energy to his family”

 

Driscoll, who is a 1991 graduate of Whitman Hanson, has spent 22 years as a high school football coach.  He made the difficult decision to step away from coaching at this time because of his young family and his desire to be there for his kids as they enjoy the benefits of playing sports.  “I learned the importance of putting family first from my parents and while it is difficult to say goodbye, at least for now, to the program I love so deeply I know it is the right decision.  I will still be WH football’s biggest fan,” Driscoll said.

 

Whitman Hanson will begin the search for a new coach immediately and has posted it on the MIAA website.  The Panthers play in the Keenan Division of the Patriot League.

Update

We still have a few weeks left in the Fall 2 season before we finish the year with spring sports. We held our spring pre season meetings with parents, students and coaches this past week. As a reminder, www.whathletics.com has a link to the tryout checklist. Please refer to that to be sure everything is in order.
Unfortunately, Covid shutdown all 3 levels of our football team this week which gave us the reminder how important it is to stay diligent in safety protocols. The teams worked hard with various virtual activities to remain engaged during the shutdown. The varsity team returns to action Thursday at home at 6pm.

The third week of virtual trials was productive for the boys track and field team. Top scoring honors went to junior Jacob Donovan who won 3 events with PRs in 55m and 300m. Jacob lead off the 4 x 200 relay and tallied 16.25 points. In 2nd place this week was Jake Caterer (13.25 pts)who remains the points leader over the first three weeks. Theo Kamperides won the mile and two mile for 10 points. Chase Baker scored 10 points and Chris Blackman scored 9 points in a variety of events. Liam Cafferty won the 1000m and a close second to Theo in the mile ( 8 points) Once again overall the team showed great improvement with 37 PRs (personal records) this week. Looking forward to warm weather next week!

The Patriot League girls Track and Field Meet #3, Fall 2 edition, saw 16 Personal Records set for the Girls team. Top performers for the week included Junior April Keyes, winning the 55 Meter Hurdles and the 55 Meter and 300 Meter Dash events and placing 2nd in the High Jump. April also ran the anchor leg of the 4 x 200 Meter Relay. Junior Captain Myah Kamperides took both the Mile and 2 Mile races and finished 2nd in the Long Jump to score 13 points. And Senior Captain Hailey Minicucci scored 9.25 points with a win in the Long Jump and a 2nd place finish in the 300. Hailey also ran as a member of the 4 X 200 Relay team.

All students and at least one parent should attend our spring pre-season meeting on Tuesday March 23rd at 7:01pm on zoom.  At that time, we will be discussing a lot of important information.  We were just approved to begin a little earlier than the previously published 4/29date.  Each coach is allowed to select 3 days of practice each week from 4/5 to 4/18.  The coaches are working now to formulate how they want to use those dates.  They will be optional and they are not open to anyone playing a fall 2 sport.  You also may not quit your fall 2 sport to go to these workouts.  Fall 2 athletes, regardless of whether they are still on the roster or not, may not start spring sports until 4/29.

 

The meeting on Tuesday will begin with a brief athletic presentation and then each team will go into their own breakout room.  Please make sure you attend.  The invite information was sent via email on Friday. 

 

In on the field action this week, it was a tough one for the football team as Marshfield made an impressive Patriot League debut by beating the Panthers, 41-12. Cam Burroughs hit Will Stafford on 4th and goal for a 7 yard touchdown run and Will Frazier has a 4 yard TD run to account for the Panther scorers.  WH travels to Plymouth North Friday at 6pm.

 

The top medal winner in the Patriot League Fall 2 Girls Indoor Track and Field Meet #2 was Junior April Keyes with 15.25 points.  April placed 1st in both the 55 Meter Hurdles and the 300 Meter Dash.  April also scored in 55 Meter Dash, Long Jump and as a member of the 4 x 200 Relay team.  With 15 points, Junior Captain Myah Kamperides won both the Mile and 2 Mile events and was also the top Long Jumper.  Savannah Kamperides, only a Freshman, finished 3rd for the second week in a row with 11 points, scoring in both the 300 and the Mile along with winning the 55 Meter Dash, and Senior Captain Hailey Minicucci scored in the 300, 55 Hurdles and Long Jump to place 4th overall with 7 points.  The team saw 14 Personal Records set this week and will be looking ahead to more improvement in the weeks to come.

Update

1. The winter season came to an exciting end in the Patriot Cup championship as the boys basketball team rallied to beat Hingham for the third time this season. Senior captains Cole Levangie and Nate Amado each scored 16 points to help the Panthers wrap up an undefeated season by beating Hingham in the Patriot Cup championship, 73-61. Junior Guards Amari Jamison (18 points) and Ryan Vallancourt (16 points) had big games for the Panthers who end the season by extending their winning streak to 35 straight dating back to December 26, 2019. The undefeated season is the first in school history for boys basketball and for that the Boston Globe ranked Whitman Hanson as the number one team in the state. It's the first time that the Panthers have earned that honor.

The girls basketball team had a terrific year advancing all the way to the Patriot Cup title game before losing to Hanover. But the highlight was the semifinal game where the girls dominated the league champion Plymouth North Blue Eagles, 57-44. The team was led by junior Abby Martin who tallied 17 points and 9 rebounds. Captains Rylie Harlow (10 points) and Reese Codero (9 points) also helped provide an offensive lift. The team finished 9-4 on the season.

The WH Varsity Gymnastics team concluded their season with the Patriot League meet. The girls had a great meet and placed 6th as a team.

Highlights include senior captain Madison Scaccia's 9th place 8.4 vault and sophomore Riley Getchell's 8.0 6th place beam routine. Senior captain Savannah Poirier competed alongside freshman Emma Mckeon in the all around. Emma came in 6th in the AA with two of her highest event scores of the season on vault (8.9) and beam (8.6).

The Whitman Hanson /Silver Lake girls hockey team ended their season with a 5-4 win and a 7-3 win vs. Marshfield. In the first game WHSL was led by a hat trick from Ellie Grady, Shea Kelleher added a goal and an assist while Kira Peterson, Emily McDonald and Bridget Cardarelli added goals.

We provided the final updates on boys hockey and swimming in the last newsletter.

With all of the winter sports in the books, the focus now turns to "Fall 2" where football, track and cheerleading will take place. Flexibility will be the key word as we will have to adjust as we go to confirm with the various Covid protocols. But overall, the kids and coaches adapted well to the first week of practice. We do have good news which is at it currently stands parents will be allowed to attend both home and away games. Lanyards, which will have to be worn in order to attend, will be issued this week. In order to obtain the lanyard all user fees, including past due amounts need to be paid. Payments can be made at www.whathletics.com.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that Chris McAndrews has been promoted to take over as head coach of the boys lacrosse team. Chris, who is a WH graduate, previously served as the JV coach and varsity assistant. The team is scheduled to begin practice in late April however there has been some discussion at the league level which would allow the team to begin sooner than that. We should have a definitive answer on any changes to the start date of spring sports sometime around March 12th.

As always, all parents and students should follow us on Twitter @whathletics . We will be posting all of the updates regarding fall 2 and spring on Twitter.

Update

 

One of the casualties of the covid restrictions was the creation of our own swimming team.  After learning that Middleboro was dissolving our co op partnership, we reached out to several area schools about forming a new co op or just creating our own team.  We do have some promising leads for next year, but due to covid we couldn’t find a place to run a program and we were left without a team.  We are very appreciative that Middleboro stepped up and allowed our existing students to remain with the team.  For those girls, its been a great season as they finished first in the South Shore league meet.  Katelyn Sweeney scored 20 points scoring points in the 200IM and the 100 Back. Also great swims from Erin Tilley and Mariella Crowley.

 

Our girls hockey co op with Silver Lake, WHSL also had a tough year with covid.  The girls were not able to play many of their games due to various covid situations.  But they did return on the season and had several big wins.  In the Patriot Cup matchup on Saturday it was an epic battle with Hanover/Cohasset. Both goalies played great all night. The shootout ended up 1-0 as we just could not get one by their goaltender. It was a strange year but Ms. Jamieson (Silver Lake’s Athletic Director) and I appreciate the dedication and effort of all the coaches and players this year and look forward to a “normal season” next year. Thank you to our 9 graduating seniors.

 

The boys basketball team wrapped up the regular season Patriot League title with a perfect 9-0 record for the first undefeated regular season in school history.  In the opening round of the Patriot Cup, the Panthers advanced to the semifinals by beating North Quincy, 68-58 behind a career night from Junior Amari Jamison who poured in 26 points with 6 three pointers.  Senior Captain Nate Amado added 18 while Juniors Ryan Vallancourt and Malcolm Alcorn Crowder each had 9.  The Panthers have now won a state best 33 straight and will put that streak on the line Thursday night in the semifinals.

 

The girls basketball team played a great game for three quarters on Friday in the opening round of the Patriot cup before being shutout in the final quarter which allowed Scituate to rally to a 51-45 win.  The Panthers were led by Junior Abby Martin who tossed in 15 points.  The Panthers are still alive though as the now play a quarterfinal game against Hingham at home on Tuesday at 6pm.

 

The boys hockey team saved its best hockey for the end of the season.  After winning their final two regular season games, the Panthers opened the Patriot Cup by beating Pembroke, 4-3.  Sophomore Matt Solari had a hat trick and the fourth goal.  Senior goaltender Bobby Siders turned away 32 shots.  Unfortunately, the season came to an end in the second round losing at Plymouth North , 4-3.  Once again, Solari had the fire power with 2 goals and Willis had the other.  Siders made 29 saves.  A big thank you to everyone in the program (students, coaches and parents) for handling all of the modifications so well.  The record really doesn’t tell the story as this team battled from day one until literally the final second  of the season.

 

The gymnastics team is competing in its final meet today before participating in the league meet tomorrow.  Results for both will be posted on twitter.

Update

 

The winter season is coming to a close next week and we will then turn our attention to the “Fall 2” season which will include football for all 3 levels, indoor track (which will actually be held outdoors) and cheerleading.  We are working on all of the details but please log on to www.whathletics.com and click on tryout checklist and be sure you have taken care of all items.  We will be sending out a list, sorted by student ID number, on Tuesday so you can see if you are signed up and if you have everything in.  In addition, we will have a mandatory zoom meeting on Thursday 2/11 at 7pm for anyone playing in “fall 2”.  The invite will be sent to all families and coaches this week but please put it on your calendar now.

 

A quick notice to all athletes that effective immediately, we no longer allow gaiter masks to be worn.

 

Despite the Covid modifications and restrictions, there have been many incredible moments this winter.  One of the best happened Saturday night when our boys hockey team continued to display their relentless effort which resulted in a hard fought, come from behind, 3-2 win over Plymouth North.  It was the Panthers first win since opening night and even though our schedule has had us matched up against some the state powers, the team battles start to finish every game.  Luke Tropeano and Joe Cully both scored their first varsity goals and Matt Solari had the other while also assisting on both of the other goals.  It was Cully scoring the game winner 230 left in the game to snap a 2-2 tie for the win.  The Panthers will play Silver Lake on Monday night before setting their attention to the Patriot Cup which will begin on Wednesday night (location, opponent and time is TBA).

 

The girls basketball team has also been a terrific story this winter.  After a few bumps in the road to start the year which included a couple of covid shutdowns, the girls have reeled off 5 straight wins.  The most exciting of which was a buzzer beating 45-43 win over previously unbeaten Plymouth North.  Lauren Dunn (10 points) attacked the glass from the far left corner and beat everyone to a rebound and shot it home as time expired for the victory. Junior Abby Martin was limited due to foul trouble but had a team high 14 points and 6 rebounds. Senior captain Reese Codero threw in another three 3-pointers and tallied 9 points.  The girls also beat Marshfield on Friday to remain just one game behind first place Plymouth North as we head into the final 2 games of the season.

 

The boys basketball team extended the longest winning streak in the state to 31 games and also clinched their second straight Patriot League title by holding off a surging Marshfield team, 71-70 Friday night.  Captains Cole Levangie (31 points) and Nate Amado 27 points powered Whitman Hanson to the win.  The entire team has been working very hard and its been a complete group effort as the Panthers won the league title for the 6th time in the last 8 years.  The team has 2 more games this week (Monday at Hingham and Tuesday at Hanover) before entering the Patriot Cup as the number one seed.

 

The girls hockey team is finally back in action and the highlight of the week was tying Norwell 3-3 at the Bog in Kingston. Senior captain Emily McDonald led the way with 2 goals while Caitlyn Dilley had 1 goal and 2 assists and Shea Kelleher had the primary assist on all 3 goals. Kat Gilbert played another solid game in net  The team will celebrate its seniors Monday night at the Bog when WH/SL hosts East Bridgewater.

 

The WH Gymnastics team had their best meet of the season Saturday earing their highest team score of 125.6. The girls improved their team floor score by half a point and their team vault score by a whole point.

 

Highlights include freshmen Caroline Poth's 8.35 vault and Khloe Drake's 8.2 floor routine. Sophomore Riley Getchell had a great night with an 8.2 beam score and 8.4 vault. Senior captain Madison Scaccia scored a season high 8.4 on vault and 8.0 beam. Senior captain Savannah Poirier had an amazing floor routine with an 8.4. Freshman Emma Mckeon posted her highest all around tonight with a 33.1. Her bar routine was excellent (8.1), her vault was explosive (8.45) and her floor was powerful (8.5). The team also celebrated the seniors at the competition - Alaina Mutascio, Madison Scaccia and Savannah Poirier.

WH Head Coach Recap 2.3 vs Hingham




Hingham Harbormen defeated the Whitman-Hanson Panthers tonight 5-2 in their second and final regular season meeting.  The Harbormen started the scoring in the first with 3 even strength goals.  The Panthers held them off the board in the 2nd. The Harbormen did score two more in the 3rd, one of them being on the power play.

The Panthers scored 2 goals on the power play in the 3rd. One by senior defensemen Josh Pike, who netted his first goal of the year, and junior forward John Ward added the second one with a great cross ice feed from sophomore Matt Solari.

Panthers senior goaltender Bobby Siders stopped 37 shots taken by the Harbormen. 

This young Whitman-Hanson Panthers team continues to show great progress throughout this season by putting up 14 shots on net tonight;  which more than doubled what they had two weeks ago when they first faced the Harbormen.

Update

Football fans got some good news this week as the MIAA approved the "Fall 2" season which will give our students a chance to play football from February 22nd-April 25th.  There will be no post season but there could potentially be a one week league playoff of some kind, but that has not yet been decided.  What we do know is we intend to try and get the teams to play every team in our division once.  The exact schedule will be worked out and finalized over the next couple of weeks.  To read more about the protocols and modifications you can visit www.miaa.net.  Any student who would like to play should have their parents fill out the online permission slip at whathletics.com .  We will also be offering indoor track in this "Fall 2" season.  The actual events though are likely to be taking place outdoors but we hope to run the indoor events but just do them outside.

 

Now to this week's update.

 

The girls basketball team dropped a tough one at home on Monday but bounced back nicely to win their next three, beating Duxbury, Hingham and Silver Lake.  The girls avenged Monday's loss to Hingham by winning on the road, 54-42. The Panthers were led by senior captains Reese Codero (12 points) who knocked down 4 three pointers and Rylie Harlow (12 points). Junior Megan Stone chipped in with 9 points off the bench and knocked down a big three pointer late in the fourth quarter to keep Hingham at bay.  On senior night today, every player scored, including all 4 seniors, to lead WH to a 20 point win.  

 

The boys basketball team keeps rolling along winning both of their games this week.  In Friday's senior night contest, senior co captains Cole Levangie (17 points) and Nate Amado (15 points) powered the Panthers to a 69-57 win over Hingham to improve to 6 and 0 and open a 2 game lead in the race for the league title.  The low post duo of Malcolm Alcorn Crowder (15points, 9 rebounds, 4 blocks) and senior Ryan Vassil (8 points, 7 rebounds) dominated inside.  The Panther started 5 seniors in the game.  In Tuesdays win at Duxbury, Junior guard Ryan Vallancourt drilled 5 three pointers.  The Panthers will hit the road this week travelling to Plymouth North on Tuesday and Marshfield on Friday.

 

After a long wait, the girls hockey team final returned to the ice on Saturday and even though they lost, 5-1 to Notre Dame, it was a great day to see the kids back playing.  The team had been shutdown for the previous 3 weeks ( week 1 because of a WH covid shutdown and weeks 2 and 3 because of SIlver Lake's covid shutdown. Senior captain Caleigh Tompkins scored our lone goal while short handed. Kat Gilbert played a very good game in net for WHSL.  The girls are also playing tonight and we will post those results on twitter @whathletics.

 

The boys hockey team keeps battling even though the wins are hard to come by. The Panthers are a young squad after graduating much of their firepower from last year's sectional semifinal team.  The Panthers lost to Scituate on Friday, 4-0 but Bobby Siders was still tremendous in net stopping 38 shots.  Coach Rob Peters says he is very proud of the compete level from his team as they are fighting hard in every game.  The team returns to the ice against Silver Lake tomorrow at Hobomock.


The Whitman Hanson Varsity Gymnastics team had another great meet this afternoon. The girls scored a 121.75. They improved their team score on both vault and beam!


Highlights include senior captain Madison Scaccia's explosive 8.3 vault and freshman Emma McKeon's beautiful vault 8.3 and smooth bar routine with an 8.1.
