WH Athletics Update



This weekend Whitman-Hanson hosted two incredible high school athletic events and demonstrated once again what a special community we have.  On Saturday, the boys wrestling team welcomed the Division 2 South Sectional tournament to our school and on Sunday the cheerleading program put on the Panther Invitational.

We will detail the results of these events a little later, but what is really impressive is how the student-athletes, parents, coaches and our facilities department worked together to put on such tremendous tournaments.  We can’t emphasize enough how lucky we are to have such dedicated people in our programs.  In particular, we want to recognize wrestling coach Gary Rabinovitz and cheerleading coach Alyssa Hayes for their outstanding leadership and organization.

Now to the results…..
Leading the way for WH wrestling was 138 pound Damari Goldsmith Greene going 2-1 on the day and finishing in 2nd place bringing his season total to 26-15.  Also having a very good tournament was Steven Brooks with a fourth place finish and going 2-2 on the day at 152 pounds bringing his season total to 18-10.  Both Damari and Steve will represent the Panthers at the Division 2 State tournament in Beverly, MA on February 15-16.
Other place winners for the Panthers all taking 6th included 160 pounds Tyler Cullinan, 182 pound John Youngman, 195 pound Christian Schneider and at 220 pounds Mike Gardner.
Great job overall as the team placed 10 of 12 teams with a total of 60 points.
Our cheerleaders added more hardware to their trophy case winning the large school division of the Panther Invitational.  You can see the routine on twitter @whathletics .  The girls now set their sites on another Patriot League crown when they travel to Duxbury Wednesday night.
The boys hockey team is still just 3 points away from qualifying for the post season.  The Panthers have to be a scary draw for the rest of the division 2 field as WH has been outstanding against some terrific teams.  For the second time this season, Whitman Hanson took Duxbury down to the wire on Saturday before dropping a 2-1 decision when the Green Dragons netted the game winner with less than a minute to play.  Ed Scriven had the lone tally for WH while Bobby Siders kept the team in the game with an outstanding performance between the pipes.  The team will host Quincy on Wednesday before they take on Abington on Senior night next Saturday.  We will let all students in for free for the senior night game as long as you have a superfan card.
The Whitman Hanson /Silver Lake girls hockey team beat Shawsheen Wednesday 9-1 at the Janas  Memorial Rink in Lowell. WHSL was led by Alyssa Murphy with 3 goals and 2 assists, Lily Ulvila with 2 goals, also scoring were Zoe Lydon, Ellie Grady, Neve Corkery and Caleigh Tompkins, Anastasia Ergas chipped In With 2 assists for her first varsity points. Our next game is Saturday 2/9 vs. Norwell at Rockland Rink at 3:30 pm. The team is off until Saturday when they travel to Stoughton.
