WH Hires New Softball Coach


Whitman- Whitman-Hanson Regional High School is pleased to announce the appointment of Jordan McDermott as the new varsity softball coach.  Coach McDermott spent the last 3 seasons as the head coach at Massasoit and led the Warriors to the Region 21 championship in 2018. Massasoit advanced to the NJCAA Division III District H tournament, falling to host Anne Arundel CC in Arnold, Maryland.

Coach McDermott, who works as a para professional at Indian Head Elementary School in the Whitman-Hanson school district, was a three-year starter and All-MASCAC selection at Bridgewater State in both softball and soccer and served as a captain during her senior season in each sport.

In softball she finished her three-year career with a .304 batting average and had 42 stolen bases in 52 attempts. A versatile player, McDermott saw time both in centerfield and at shortstop. Her senior year she hit a career best .331 along with swiping a team-best 17 steals, only being caught once, leading the Bears to a 29-13 record.
Coach McDermott graduated from Bridgewater State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in physical education with a concentration in recreation.
“We are very fortunate to have such a talented young coach taking over our softball program. Her positive energy and depth of knowledge will surely be an asset.  I am confident the team will enjoy playing for her,” Whitman-Hanson athletic director Bob Rodgers said.  “Anytime there is a coaching change there can be anxious moments for everyone involved but once the team meets Jordan and plays for her those feelings will be calmed.”
“I am excited to share my passion and love for the game with the students of Whitman-Hanson.  I looked forward to getting to know the players and work with them to achieve their goals.  We will create a positive environment focused on fundamentals, chemistry and fun,” McDermott said.
Whitman-Hanson plays in the Keenan Division of the Patriot League and tryouts for the season begin on Monday March 18th.
