Update from WH Athletics

It has been an exciting winter sports season and while there is still a lot of action left to be played, we are closing in on the finish line.  Here is the latest update.

 

1)      The girls hockey team is enjoying a terrific season under first year head coach Kevin Marani.  The girls avenged a loss from earlier this season on Saturday when they beat Cohasset/Hanover 6-4 in a crucial league battle.  With the win, the girls put themselves in position to control their own destiny in terms of the league title.  If they beat North Quincy/Quincy in their final league game they will earn at least a tie for the league championship.  WHSL was led by Mel McAleer's 2 goals and an assist, Shannon Elwood's goal and 2 assists and Hannah Tracy's goal and assist. Also chipping in was Emily Kelleher and Kaitlyn Garvey with goals. Emily Hayes and Melissa Crone shared the net duties. This puts the overall record at 10 and 4. The next game is 2/13 against Duxbury at The Bog in Kingston.

2)      The young boys hockey team continues to show improvement as they split a pair of games this week beating Plymouth North 3-1 and dropping a 5-0 decision at league power Duxbury.  In the win over Plymouth North, Jared Pendrak, Owen Lydon and Kyle Bina each scored while Zach Pike and Matt Stearns picked up assists.  Liam Sweeney and Ryan Lincoln were standouts on defense while David Perry made 27 saves for the win.  The team plays tonight at Rockland Rink at 6:10pm in a makeup from their snowed out game against North Quincy.

3)      Our wrestling team is gearing up for the post season and many of the wrestlers have a good shot to go far in the post season.  Three of those top ranked wrestlers include the captains Luke Rogers, Mike McDonough and Nate Perkins who all went 3-0 during Saturday’s quad at Whitman-Hanson.  Junior John Will has been one of the most improved team members this year as he also went 3-0 Saturday as he recorded 3 pins.

4)      For the 4th year in a row, the Patriot League indoor track championships were snowed out but this year we were able to make it up the next day.  It was an excellent day for the Panthers and many of the pictures and various results are posted on our twitter account @whathletics.  Brian Edwards won the long jump, Pat Duffey took the 1000 while Sam Coletti won the mile.  There were many other outstanding performances which can be found online and on twitter.  Nine girls and 10 boys will be participating in the upcoming Division 3 Meet to be held Thursday, February 11We were also excited this week for Sam Coletti who officially received her appointment to West Point.

5)      The cheerleading team competed at Nationals in Dallas last week and turned in an impressive effort taking second place in one of the more prestigious national competitions.  The girls are now working toward the state competitions.  They will host the Patriot League championships on Sunday February 28th at 3pm.

6)      The WHAM swim program wrapped up their regular season in spectacular fashion with the 400 free relay team advancing to sectionals in their final attempt of the year.  Congratulations to Abby Bailey, Lauren Foley, Olivia Shaw, Alyssa Lusardi and Madison Studley.

7)      The girls basketball team is still alive for post season contention but they have their work cut out for them.  The girls are 6-10 and have to win 5 of their final 6 games.  Despite the record it has really been an outstanding year for this young team.  The girls experienced a memorable trip to South Carolina at Christmas time and have recorded many impressive wins.  The team is home this week with games against Duxbury (Tuesday) and Scituate (Thursday) before travelling to Bridgewater-Raynham on Tuesday of vacation week.

8)      The boys basketball team ran their record to 15-0 by beating Quincy 74-63 this week in a battle between the top two teams in the league.  Senior captain Nick Smith poured in 21 points while fellow Senior captain Josh Rice tossed in 20.  Senior Brenndan Rogers added 13 to help the Panthers improve to 15-0, 12-0.  With the win the Panthers increase their lead over Quincy for first place to 3 games with 4 left to play.  The team is currently ranked 7th in the Boston Globe which is the team’s highest ranking since 2007.  The team is on the road this week with games at Duxbury (Tuesday) and Scituate (Thursday) before returning home for its senior night against Bridgewater-Raynham on Tuesday of vacation week.

Pat Cronin Named Baseball Coach

Whitman – Whitman-Hanson Regional High School is pleased to announce the appointment of Hall of Fame baseball coach Pat Cronin to the position of varsity baseball coach.  Cronin, who recently retired from East Bridgewater High School after 35 years as head coach, replaces Chris Catanoso who had to step down after taking a job out of state.

 

Coach Cronin's teams at East Bridgewater have enjoyed tremendous success with 3 South Sectional Championships (1993, 2012 and 2015 ) and 25 MIAA tournament appearances.  His 1993 team won the Division 2 Eastern Massachusetts State Championship.  Despite being the smallest school in Division 3, East Bridgewater gained consideration for the prestigious Super 8 tournament over the last two seasons and last year received a nomination. 

 

Cronin is no stranger to Whitman-Hanson.  He was a teammate of the late Dennis O'Brien on the 1965 Class B state championship team here at Whitman-Hanson.  They were also teammates on the undefeated 1965 football Class C state championship.

 

"I am very excited to be returning to my alma mater as head baseball coach, and I can't wait to work with the ballplayers from Whitman and Hanson in the years ahead," Coach Cronin said.  "I think it is an honor to get this unexpected opportunity to coach baseball on a diamond in the shadow of a football field named after my childhood friend Dennis O'Brien."

 

Coach Cronin coached Red Sox bullpen coach and WH alum Dana LeVangie on the 1988 EB American Legion Zone 10 championship team.  He is a member of the Whitman-Hanson school Hall of Fame and his picture is prominently displayed in the John F. McEwan Performing Arts Center.  In 2012 he was inducted into the Massachusetts Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame.

 

"I have known and respected Pat for more than 25 years.  When I was coaching at Silver Lake, I used to send my pitchers to him in the off season.  I don't think there is a better teacher of the game, especially when it comes to pitching," Whitman-Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said.  "When I found out Pat was retiring from EB, he was my first call, first to congratulate him on a great career but then to see if he wanted to come home.  I was thrilled when he was excited about the opportunity.  Our student-athletes are very lucky to have the opportunity to play for such a terrific coach and person."

 

Coach Cronin retired as Chair of the English department at East Bridgewater in 2008 but remained on as baseball coach until retiring this winter.  The baseball season will begin with tryouts on Monday March 21st.

The team spent time, cleaning shelves, checking expiration dates, and reorganizing the warehouse. Head coach Kevin Broderick said “it was a great experience for our kids and a good chance for them to realize they can give back to the community where they live”. The team also made a financial donation to the food pantry from their own fundraising activities. An equal donation will also be made to the Hanson food pantry, which wasn’t available today for a team visit.
