Frisoli Scholarship

Scholarship Application

Applications due by December 15, 2020

JJ Frisoli was an accomplished student-athlete at Whitman-Hanson where he was captain of the 1994 championship football team and the 1995 undefeated wrestling team.  Loved by all who met him, JJ was especially proud of the communities of Whitman and Hanson. Through athletics and a strong community spirit, JJ benefited greatly from the lessons he learned such as leadership, work ethic, discipline, dedication, sportsmanship, loyalty, commitment, and time management.  JJ stayed very close with all of his Whitman Hanson friends and gave back to all the communities he was part of.

The JJ Frisoli Foundation was established by the Frisoli family in honor of JJ's spirit and love of life. Scholarships totaling up to $10,000 will be given to senior students graduating from Whitman Hanson in 2021 who have demonstrated excellence in athletics in terms of leadership and accomplishment while maintaining a C average or higher.  The students will also be required to be attending a college, the military service, or an accredited apprenticeship program. The JJ Frisoli Foundation will select the recipients in February and the winners will be announced at the Whitman-Hanson Scholarship night.

Basketball Information

·         All players must have all paperwork completed before tryout day.  We will NOT accept physicals on tryout day.  With tryouts limited to two days due to covid, you do not want to miss one of these days.  Be sure you have everything taken care of before you arrive in the gym.

·         Masks MUST be worn at all times.  If you need a mask break, you need to go OUTSIDE by opening one of the doors from the gym.

·         When you take your water break you should be at least 6 feet from anyone else.  You take your drink and then put the mask back on.  Every player must provide their own water bottle.  They may refill it from the water bubblers.

·         Each player must sanitize their hands before they enter the gym.  They should also sanitize at the midway point and the conclusion of the practice. 

·         Many shooters like to lick their fingers for grip, this not allowed.  Use water from your water bottle.

·         If you are practicing in the front gym, you should enter through the doors from the main lobby.  If you are practicing in the back gym you should enter through the doors across from the boys locker room.

·         Players should arrive at practices and games already dressed and ready to go.  You may not use the locker room unless your practice is directly after school on a day you are physically in class.  In those instances, you may go into the locker room to change and then immediately return to the gym.  You may not store anything in the locker room.  You must bring all your belongings back out and put it someplace safely in view during your practice.  You may not use the locker room after practice, so bring sweat pants or something else to wear over your practice gear to go home.  We do not want to see a player leaving the gym in shorts as this is a recipe for getting sick.  Please bring something to wear over your practice gear.

·         For players who are practicing at other schools, you may NOT go anywhere else in the school except the gym.  This means you may not go visit your former favorite middle school teacher.  If you need to change into your practice gear you can do it in the bathroom.

·         For players who are practicing at the middle schools, on a day when you are in school for in person learning, we can provide bus transportation if needed.  Please email coach Rodgers at robert.rodgers@whrsd.org  asap if you would like a bus assignment.  Keep in mind you will ride the route the bus has to take other kids home and they will bring you to the middle school when that route is done.

·         In all instances, practices will end on time and students will be expected to leave the gym and exit the school immediately.  Please be sure you have your ride there on time.

·         Once the teams are selected, each player will be given a ball with a marking on it to identify that it is their ball.  We will try to use that ball for you whenever possible.  Players may bring that ball home each day (but they better remember to bring it the next day) or they can store it here at the school.  It is your responsibility to know where that ball is and keep it safe.

·         You cannot attend any practices or games if you missed your in-person or remote learning sessions for the day.  This also means you must be participating in a meaningful way in each class.

·         Parents may not attend practices and must wait outside the school for their child.  Parents and siblings may attend only home games provided they are wearing a school issued lanyard.  Lanyards will be given once all user fees are paid and any outstanding balances are satisfied.  If someone has a financial issue and needs more time to pay, you can simply request a payment plan.  That request must be made in writing via email to both Coach Rodgers and Siobhan.horton@whrsd.org .  At this time, parents will not be allowed to attend road games.  We do expect all games to be streamed live.

·         In order for us to get through this winter, we ask that all involved make a commitment to follow all of the safety protocols that are in place especially when you are away from school.

Update

 

The fall season came to an end this week when our girls soccer team lost to Hingham in a shootout.  Anna Sullivan scored both of the Panthers goals but ultimately Hingham won the penalty kick round 3 to 2.  It was an outstanding effort by both teams and we couldn’t have been more proud of our girls who never gave up despite trailing in the final seconds of the game before Anna tied it up.

 

While on the topic of girls soccer, I would like to congratulate assistant girls soccer coach Tom Zamagni who announced his retirement after more than 26 years serving our students.  Coach Z has been an influential mentor for hundreds of girls over the years and his passion and expertise will be missed.  We want to thank him for all he has done and we wish him the best as he now gets to spend more time with his family and his cherished role of grandfather.

 

As far as winter sports is concerned, we did clear some hurdles this week as the process to open the door for some sports was finally completed.  It was a long road which ended on Friday at the MIAA board of directors.  In the end, the board moved wrestling to the spring and indoor track to “Fall 2” while keeping basketball, hockey, swimming and gymnastics in the winter to start on 12/14 with practices.  Cheerleading will not be held this winter and we are still securing details of when and how that season will be held sometime later this school year.  Each sport that will be allowed to be played will have specific modifications to ensure the highest level of safety.  You can read about those modifications by visiting our website www.whathletics.com and click on the modifications tab.   There is still a lot of work to be done on implementation of these modifications and the Patriot League Athletic Directors will be meeting tomorrow to work the details.  We will keep everyone updated we work out the details.

 

Parents of winter sport athletes should make sure their child has an up to date physical (this includes a flu shot) on file with the school nurse, a concussion test and a permission slip (both the concussion test and the permission slip can be found at www.whathletics.com ).  We will be holding a virtual parent night sometime after Thanksgiving.  This will include information about how parents might be able to attend events, tryout info and other important information.  Coaches will be breaking off for individual sport meetings as part of this event.  We will be emailing everyone who has signed up for a winter sport with the log in information.

 

Finally, a few weeks ago I emailed students regarding our dilemma with swimming this winter.  Our Co-op partner Middleboro notified us at the end of the year that they were opening their swim team to middle school students. The MIAA does not allow schools to have both the middle school and co op waivers. Therefore our co op is no longer in effect.  It was my plan to partner with a different school or go out on our own.  We had made some great progress on this plan but then covid hit and everything was halted.  Pools are scarce and team sizes and school mixing is not recommended.  Therefore, we will have to take a one year hiatus with swimming.  We will do everything in our power to bring it back next school year.  The good news though is that by MIAA rule, anyone who was on the team last year may finish their career with Middleboro who is graciously allowing our students to still participate. 

 

We hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Update


The fall season will wrap up this week as Whitman Hanson has one team still left alive in Patriot Cup play (more on girls soccer below). The last two months have been a challenge for everyone as sports returned with many modifications. The student athletes deserve so much credit for adapting and keeping the focus on being part of a team. The true benefits of high school athletics were on full display with our students demonstrating commitment, dedication, sacrifice and character. All of this would not have been possible without our outstanding coaching staff which includes the head coaches and all assistants. It hasn't been easy but they never complained and just did everything they could to keep sports alive for our students. We are very lucky at Whitman Hanson to have such an incredible group of people working for our kids.

With the fall coming to a close, our attention now turns to the winter. As of this writing, we are cautiously optimistic that we will have many sports. However, students, parents and staff have to be realistic that if we do not work together to stop the spread of COVID and get our numbers down, everything we have worked for will be in jeopardy. In neighboring communities there have been reports of underage drinking parties, large gatherings and other activities that simply will lead to a sports, and perhaps school, shutdown.

This is a big week ahead for winter sports. The MIAA sport medicine committee will be hearing from each specific sport regarding their modification proposals. From there, it heads to the Covid task force and then to the MIAA Board of Directors. We should get many answers by the end of the week. What we do know now, is indoor track will be moved to "Fall 2" which is late February. Wrestling is likely headed to the spring season and cheerleading will be combined into one season also held in the spring. We will provide an update during then week on Twitter @whathletics and again in this newsletter next week.

Now let's get to some action on the field.


1. The girls soccer team was the number two seed in the Keenan Division in the Patriot Cup. This created a first round matchup with Fisher top seed Scituate which resulted in a 3-1 loss. But the format of the cup meant that the Panthers were not eliminated. Instead, they advanced to play a very strong Plymouth North team on Saturday and recorded a thrilling 1-0 overtime win when senior captain Alexis Billings kicked home the game winner late in the extra session. Keepers Kylee Colclough and Reese Codero were sensational to combine for the shutout. Abby Carew, Ava Melia, Makenna Marshall and Skylar Jordan were outstanding defensively for the Panthers while Lauryn Fostello, Kayla Cassidy and Nora Manning and Olivia Borgen turned in strong performances. The Panthers advance to the semifinals where they will travel to Hingham on Tuesday at 4pm. As a reminder, only parents with school issued lanyards may attend the game.
2. The boys soccer team won their Patriot Cup opener at Hanover, 2-1 before falling in heartbreaking fashion in double overtime at Duxbury, 3-2. In the Hanover win, Junior keeper Ethan Smith was terrific in net making a series of spectacular saves to keep the team in the game. WH got on the board first when Junior Jayden Stafford found sophomore Manny Osorio for a nice goal. Just before halftime with Hanover pressing Senior Brendan Nehiley scored from an assist from Peyton Collins on a beautiful strike from 20 yards out. In the Duxbury game, WH got on the board first when senior Captain Peyton Collins buried a low shot off a scramble from a corner. A few minutes later Duxbury scored and quickly answered that to make it 2-1. Peyton Collins would answer shortly after on a brilliant free kick for WH to make it 2-2 in the 3rd quarter before Duxbury ultimately won the game to end the season for the Panthers.
3. The Whitman-Hanson Field Hockey team opened Patriot Cup play by beating Marshfield, 1-0 before seeing their season come to end by losing to Silver Lake by the same score. In the Marshfield win the Panthers dominated the first half forcing the Marshfield Rams to play defense. Defenders Junior Rosie MacKinnon and Senior Captain Noelle Cornetta were instrumental at transitioning the ball back to the Panther forwards and keeping the ball in Marshfield's end. The score remained scoreless through the end of the third quarter. Panther Junior forward Olivia Phelps broke the tie about 5 minutes into the fourth with a goal right in front of the Marshfield keeper. The helper goes to forward Senior Captain Lauren Clark. The Silver Lake game was an added challenge as the Lakers are the only team in the league to play on grass. The team battled hard and once again represented the black and red with tremendous class.
4. Whitman-Hanson volleyball dominated over Pembroke 3-0 (25-18, 25-16, 25-16) in the first round of the Patriot Cup before losing by the same score in the second round at Plymouth North. In the Pembroke win, Juniors Abby Martin and Lily Welch led the team in kills with 6 each, while fellow junior Anna Stone and senior Sophia Berardinelli were not far behind with 4. Berardinelli led the team in aces with 4 and senior Caileen Hurley had 3. The girls showed great improvement all season and always represented WH the right way.
5. Whitman-Hanson Boys Cross Country followed up its undefeated, title winning season with a first place finish at the Patriot League Championship Meet on Wednesday at Hingham to win the Patriot Cup. Leading the way on the 5K course was Senior Captain, Theo Kamperides, who won the meet for the second straight year in a time of 16:49. Also starring for the Panthers were Senior Captain Liam Cafferty (5th overall, 17:40), Junior Nathan Tassey (7th, 17:58), Senior Captain Chris MacDonald (9th, 18:15) and Junior Gordon Johnson (12th, 18:25.).
6. Whitman-Hanson Girls Cross Country closed out its season with a 6th place finish at the Patriot League Championship Meet on Wednesday at Hingham. The top finisher for the Panthers was Junior Captain Myah Kamperides who placed 9th overall in a time of 21:01<x-apple-data-detectors://1>. Right behind her in 10th place was Senior Isabelle Amado with a time of 21:18<x-apple-data-detectors://2>. Also scoring for Whitman-Hanson were Senior Captain Bryn Miller (39th; 23:15<x-apple-data-detectors://3>), Junior Sarah Boulger (48th; 23:46<x-apple-data-detectors://4>) and Freshman Sky Bucci-Anderson (56th; 24:12.).

WH Athletics Update

The regular season came to an end last week and we are very happy with how everyone pulled together to make it such a successful return to play.  The season is not over though as the Patriot League will now host the first ever post season tournament called the Patriot Cup.  With Governor Baker changing the criteria for what it means for a town to be in the “red” we are now able to allow fans to attend road games outdoors.  For indoor events, it is a school by school decision based on the size of their gym.  For our volleyball team, since they are travelling to Pembroke which has a small gym, only our senior parents may attend.  Seniors will be given an official letter from me at practice tomorrow that parents should bring with them along with their school issued lanyard.  For the outdoor events, you must have your WH issued lanyard in order to attend.  In all cases, masks must be worn and social distancing practiced.  Please follow the directions from the home site as to where you should be sitting.

 

The brackets for the Patriot Cup can be found on our twitter @whathletics .  Most games will be live streamed and you can find the links on our twitter.  Here is the schedule for this week

 

Monday: Field Hockey at Marshfield 4pm

Tuesday: Volleyball at Pembroke 4pm

Tuesday: Boys Soccer at Hanover 4pm

Wednesday: Girls Soccer at Scituate 4pm

Wednesday: Cross Country at Hingham

 

To wrap up the regular season, lets check in on each team

 

  1. The Whitman-Hanson Field Hockey team’s perseverance paid off by beating Plymouth South, 4-0 for their first win of the year.  Whitman-Hanson struck twice in the first quarter with Junior Forwards Lauren Dunn and Olivia Phelps each scoring and assisting each others goals.  Whitman-Hanson held that lead up until the half mainly due in part to great ball movement and aggressive defense.  In the third quarter, Lauren Dunn scored her second goal of the game thanks to a unified offensive team effort.  Olivia Phelps scored her second of the night in the fourth with a helper from Maddie Guidaboni. 
  2. It was a disappointing night for the girls soccer team on Friday as they lost their chance to repeat as league champions after Hingham recorded a 2-0 road win over the Panthers.  The Panthers finish 1 point behind Hingham in the standings with an 8-1-2 record.
  3. The boys soccer team turned in one of their best performances of the season against league champion Marshfield Friday but lost, 2-1.  The Rams got on the board first on a PK in second quarter. And then in third quarter Marshfield added another before Whitman -Hanson was able to score one on a free kick scored by senior captain Peyton Collins and was assisted from senior captain Brendan Nehiley. WH kept the pressure on Marshfield, but they were unable to find back of the net. The Panthers finish the regular season with a 5-6 record.
  4. The volleyball team battled it out with the Hingham Harbormen but ultimately fell, 3-0 (13-25, 22-25, 24-26). Top performers included senior Captains Sophia Berardinelli (30 assists) and Caileen Hurley (27 assists, 3 blocks) ,junior Captain Lily Welch (7 kills, 9 digs), junior Abby Martin (5 kills, 4 solo blocks), and senior Sarah Byers (16 receptions, 6 digs).

Patriot League Cup

Two Whitman Hanson golfers, senior captain Aidan Miller and senior Graham Stewart, represented the Panthers one final time today at The Patriot League Cup, held at a cold and windy Pembroke Country Club.

Both competed as individuals; captain Miller shot a very respectable 85, while Stewart finished the day with a 92. Both players earned their spot at the League Cup today because of their determination and steady play throughout the regular season. Though neither was able to defeat the low score of the day (78, shot by Nolan Skaggs of Plymouth South), both players can hold their heads high, as they each had plenty of memorable shots on the day and represented their team and school with class and integrity.

Congratulations to both players for a great career in the Panther uniform and for leaving a legacy of hard work and commitment for future players of the program to learn from.

WH Athletics Update

It was a great week in WH Athletics and we will get to the exciting recaps but first some other important news.

The MIAA board of directors voted this week to cancel all winter state tournaments which was disappointing but at the same time they also reaffirmed the November 30th start date. There are still a lot of hurdles to clear, the biggest of which is the recent surge of Covid cases. We need to work together to get those numbers down or else we will see a lot of changes to how schools and sports are operating. The EEA and individual sports committees have a lot of work to do to put the pieces in place for a safe return of winter sports. Once they make their recommendations the board of directors will then meet again to give us the guidance of what winter sports will look like.

All students received an email from me this week regarding winter sport signup information, the status of swimming and an important boys lacrosse meeting scheduled for Monday at 6pm via zoom. Students should check their school email.

We will wrap up the regular season of the Patriot League play this week but that will not end the fall athletic season. All teams will qualify for the exciting Patriot League cup. League championships are decided by the regular season record but the Patriot Cup will give bragging rights for teams. This promises to be a fun way to end the season. All of the info will be posted on twitter, facebook and our website on Saturday.

Now to our updates

1) The boys cross country team capped off its perfect undefeated 5-0 season by beating Marshfield, 26-29 and winning its first league championship since 2013. Scoring for the Panthers on the 5K course were Senior Theo Kamperides (1st overall; 16:34), Senior Liam Cafferty (4th, 17:04), Junior Nathan Tassey (5th, 17:09), Senior Chris MacDonald (5th, 17:37) and Junior Gordon Johnson (10th, 18:18.).

Theo Kamperides is headed for another MVP honor after winning every race this season. It has been a pleasure to watch this remarkable student athlete post a phenomenal career.

3) The girls soccer team has put itself in position to win its second straight league title but it will not be easy as they play host to Plymouth North on Monday, Duxbury on Wednesday and Hingham on Friday. The Panthers currently have a one game lead on Hingham and two game lead on Plymouth North which mean WH controls its own destiny. The team improved to 7-0-1 with a 3-0 shutout over Silver Lake last week. Whitman Hanson struck first when Olivia Borgen got the ball out wide and fired a 20yd bending ball into the far corner. Silver Lake applied a lot of pressure in the 3rd qtr only to be turned away by the outstanding defensive work of Ava Melia, Abby Carew, Makenna Marshall and Skylar Jordan. At the start of the 4th qtr Borgen broke in after dribbling 3 defenders and slotted the ball past the Silver Lake keeper. Kayla Cassidy followed it up with a blast of her own. Outstanding performances were turned in by Kelsee Wozniak, Anna Sullivan and Alexis Billings. Kylee Colclough and Reese Codero split the keeper duties to earn the shutout.

4) The boys soccer team has shown steady progress all season and it came together nicely on Wednesday when they recorded a 2-1 home win over Silver Lake to even their record at 4-4. Peyton Collins assisted on both goals (Manny Osorio and Jack Allen with the tallies) while fellow captain Brendan Nehiley did a nice job leading a terrific team effort. The defense was outstanding anchored by Randy Elfman who made several key saves. The Panthers will travel to Hingham on Monday, Plymouth North on Wednesday before wrapping up the season under the lights Friday at home against Marshfield at 6pm.

5) The highlight of the week for volleyball was a strong 3-0 win at Silver Lake, (25-23, 25-23, 25-18) for their second win of the season. Junior Captain, Lily Welch, led the team with 10 kills, while fellow junior, Abby Martin, was not far behind with 9. Senior libero, Sarah Byers, was a stand out in the back row with 12 digs, while senior Captain, Sophia Berardinelli (#27), had an impressive 27 assists, a season high for the setter. The Panthers will wrap up the regular season this week by travelling to Duxbury Monday and hosting Hingham Thursday.

6) The field hockey team only played one game this week (a 5-1 loss at Plymouth North) as the game against Hingham was cancelled because their team was forced into quarantine due to Covid. Junior forward Olivia Phelps scored her 3rd goal of the season in the loss. The rematch with Plymouth North which was originally scheduled for Monday will be played on Tuesday at 4pm (The JV game will be played at 3pm). The regular season will wrap up Thursday at Plymouth South with the Patriot Cup set for the following week.

7) The golf team already finished its season but two players will represent Whitman Hanson on Tuesday at Pembroke Country Club in the Patriot Cup. Seniors Aidan Miller and Graham Stewart will tee off for one final time in their high school career.
