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.

Though the team's record (1-5) doesn't fully reflect their talent, the Panthers are steadily improving with each match; they hope to that continues tomorrow as they travel to South Shore Country Club to take on the league leading Hingham Harbormen.

WH vs Duxbury Field Hockey 10/05/20

WH Athletics Update


Our first full week of all fall sports (except football and cheerleading which have moved to a new season in February) is in the books and we are very appreciative of all the hard work of all involved to make this a reality.  Our coaching staff has adapted well to all of the new restrictions and modifications with the understanding that the most important aspect of this season is to make sure the students have the opportunity to be a part of their team once again.

Parents also have been understanding with the limitations set forth regarding attending games.  We did have some good news at the end of the week as some sports will now allow parents to attend away games as well.  Please be aware of the following:

 

  1. In order to attend games, whether home or away, you must be wearing a school issued lanyard.  This lanyard must be visible.  Please be respectful of staff who may ask to see it.
  2. Volleyball parents may only attend home games at this time.  This is due to the EEA guidelines regarding indoor events.  All other sports, parents may attend away games provided they are wearing their lanyard at all games except at: Plymouth North, North Quincy and Hanover.  These three towns are still exploring their options regarding allowing spectators from other towns and we will update you when we get more information.
  3. At all events, spectators MUST wear a mask and remain at least 6 feet (Preferably 12 feet) away from the next group.  You may sit with the people from your household, but you may not sit or stand with others. Please be respectful of this requirement as it is intended not just for your own safety but for those around you.

 

Now lets give you an update on how some of our teams did this week

 

  1. The Whitman Hanson Girls' soccer Team opened the season with a 4-0 victory over visiting Notre Dame of Hingham. After a scoreless first 20 minutes WH opened the scoring when  Kelsee Wozniak took an Olivia Borgen feed dribbled the keeper and fired it into the open net. 5 minutes later Kayla Cassidy fired a shot from 18yds out to give the Panthers a 2-0 lead. In the third period Wozniak added another while Lauryn Fostello finished off the scoring. The defense of Ava Melia, Emily Leitch, Makenna Marshall and Abby Carew was solid in front of keepers Kylee Colclough and Reese Codero who split the goalkeeping duties.
  2. Whitman- Hanson boys soccer travelled to league opponent Duxbury on Friday. Both sides played a spirited game, and both were able to adapt to the new rules. At halftime the score was tied 0-0, and the game was very equal up to this point. In the 60th minute junior Jack Allen scored a one time volley from Peyton Collins to make the score 1-0 for W-H. In the 74th minute Peyton Collins scored from a direct free kick 25 yards out to make it 2-0. Duxbury fought hard to get one in the 80th minute, and they made it very interesting in the end; but W-H held on for the win. 
  3. Whitman Hanson volleyball fell to Notre Dame Academy 0-3 (24-26, 18-25, 12-25) in last night's season opening, non-league, game. The first set was the closest, 24-26, however, despite the Panther's valiant effort, they could not keep their lead. Junior Izzy Baker made her first varsity appearance and started all three sets. For the third and final set, Baker switched to libero. This was Baker's first time as libero, and she did not disappoint. Junior Abby Martin was another crucial member in the battel against the Cougars. Martin was one of the team's leaders in kills, picking up right where she left off from last season. The Panthers record is now 0-1; they are back in action on Tuesday when they face Marshfield.
  4. The Whitman-Hanson Boys Cross Country downed Silver Lake at home 16-45 on Friday.  Senior Theo Kamperides (16:51) led the way for the Panthers on the 5K course.  Others scoring for the home team were SR Liam Cafferty (2nd, 17:55), JR Nathan Tassey (3rd, 17:59), JR Gordon Johnson (4th, 18:54), and SR Andrew Bergin (6th, 19:58.)
  5. Whitman-Hanson Girls Cross Country (0-1) fell to Silver Lake Regional (1-0) on its 5K (3.1 Mile) home course Thursday afternoon 25-32.  Top finishers for the Panthers were Junior Captain Myah Kamperides (3rd, 20:59); Junior Captain Anna Flynn (4th; 22.23), Senior Isabelle Amado (5th; 22:36); Senior Captain Bryn Miller (8th; 23:45) and Junior Sarah Boulger (12th; 24:58.)
  6. The Whitman-Hanson Field Hockey team dropped their opener to Silver Lake,  2-1.  Lakers' forward Antonia Lerardi scored the first goal in the second quarter.  The Panthers pushed the Lakers defense back in the second quarter,  but not enough to capitalize.   The Panthers got a goal in the third from Junior forward Lauren Dunn to tie the game.  The game went end to end until Lerardi scored again late in the fourth quarter.
  7. The WH Panthers golf team faced the Duxbury Dragons at the Duxbury Yacht Club for their fourth contest on the season, but were defeated 232-275 to fall to 0-4 on the season.

Senior Captain Aidan Miller was again the team medalist with his 4 over par, 40, with senior Graham Stewart and junior Pat MCBroom followed closely each with a 6 over performance.

The team will rest up and practice hard this weekend, as they have an uphill climb next week with three away matches against some strong competition.

Golf Falls At Marshfield

The WH golf squad enjoyed their day at Marshfield Country Club (par 35), but dropped their second match of the season to the Rams 251-283 to fall to 0-2 on the season.

Despite the loss, there were some bright spots on the day, one being the 7 over performance of senior Graham Stewart. Stewart had two birdies on the day to lead the Panthers in scoring. Not far behind him was senior captain Aidan Miller, who carded an 8 over par 43, including four pars on the day.

With the shortened season in place, the Panthers are scheduled to have their senior night match tomorrow against an underrated Plymouth North team, with six senior Panthers being celebrated.

On Thursday, the team travels to the prestigious Duxbury Yacht Club to take on the perennial powerhouse Dragons.

Press Release

Whitman- Whitman Hanson Regional High School announced today the hiring of Rob Peters as the new boys ice hockey coach. Peters replaces Chris Googins who resigned last month in order to watch his son play college hockey at Norwich University.

Peters has more than 20 years of hockey experience as a player, coach, business owner and marketing professional. He spent the last two years as an assistant coach at Scituate High School where he worked with head coach Brian Hurcombe, who was a member of the 1995 Whitman Hanson state finalist team. He also worked with the New Jersey Devils for 10 years as a marketing and youth hockey outreach coordinator. In addition, he owns and operates his own hockey skill development company where he trains young hockey players of all different ability levels.

"Losing Coach Googins was a huge disappointment but we are excited to have such a talented young coach to continue where Chris left off. Rob shares the values we strive to foster in our athletic department and our school," Whitman Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said. "We were fortunate to have so many strong candidates interested in our program but it was clear Coach Peters has a vision for our team and has a track record to bring that plan to fruition."

Peters made a point to thank Coach Hurcombe and the entire Scituate High School community and while he is sad to say goodbye to the Sailors he is excited for this new opportunity. "I have been fortunate throughout this process to learn a lot about Whitman-Hanson High School," Peters said. "The values and philosophies their athletic department instills in their student athletes directly parallel who I try to be as a person and coach. I am excited to see this relationship flourish as I do my best to build on an already disciplined and respected hockey program."

Whitman Hanson, which competes in the Keenan Division of the Patriot League, advanced to the sectional semifinals this past season, finished 17-6-1.

Press Release

Whitman- After one of the best seasons in school history, Whitman-Hanson boys hockey coach Chris Googins has stepped down. Coach Googins, who also serves as a history teacher and dean of students at Whitman Hanson, has had two separate tours of duty on the WH bench. He served six seasons as the boys hockey coach in the early 2000’s before departing to take over the head coaching responsibilities at Framingham State University.   He returned to coach the  Panthers in  2016 and steadily rebuilt the program going from just one win four years ago to a sectional semifinal appearance this year leading WH to a 17 win campaign. 

“This is a huge loss for our school, but I get it.  Not only is Chris a tremendous coach he is an even better father. His youngest son is playing hockey in college and he simply did not want to miss the opportunity to share that journey with him,” Whitman Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said.

Whitman-Hanson posted the position today on the MIAA website and will accept applicants over  the next few weeks with the hope of having a new coach in place by the end of June.

“Coach Googins touched all the bases as a high school coach.  He taught his players so much more than just hockey and in his final lesson to the boys he showed them that family always come first.  We are fortunate that he will  remain with our school in his current teaching position,” Rodgers said.

Chris Googins record over the last four years
19/20: 17-6-1
18/19: 10-10-1
17/18: 8-10-2
16/17: 1-16-3

Update

These are difficult  times for everyone but in particular for our spring athletes who have worked so hard to prepare  for this season. Rest assured, we will do everything possible to salvage as much of the season as possible. The Patriot League Athletic Directors have been meeting (virtually) on a regular basis and we have plans in place to return to action the day we return to school.  As of  now, the MIAA has placed the new start date as May 4th which will allow for a 12 game regular season and then some form of post season tournament.  The plan would have us ending no later than June 27th.

In the meantime, students are encouraged to stay physically active while maintaining physical distancing. It is important that all students stick with the recommendations set forth  regarding avoiding contact with others outside of your home.  This is for their safety and for everyone else as well.

Seniors are asked to look at their email and reply to the questionnaire I sent on Wednesday.  Our plan is to put together a senior athletic yearbook.  We would like everyone to be included regardless of how many years you participated.

Finally, School Counseling Director Ruth Carrigan and I held a college search seminar on Tuesday which was geared to the student athlete.  Please reach out to me if you need any  help in the process.   If you missed the presentation and would like some of the resources we distributed please let me know.

Stay safe and I hope to see you all very soon.

Coach Rodgers

2/16 Update


1)    The wrestling team displayed once again why it’s such a terrific sport to be a part of as the entire program hosted the MIAA south sectional wrestling tournament on Saturday.  Every player, coach and parent pitched in to pull of the tall task of hosting all of the D2 south schools.  On the mat, our team also fared very well placing 7 wrestlers in the top 6 places.

3/1 Update


For the first time in school history our boys hockey and boys basketball teams have advanced to the sectional semifinal in the same season.  The hockey team outlasted Scituate on Saturday, 2-0 (empty netter) before a packed house at Gallo Arena in Bourne.  The Panthers earned the victory behind a great defensive effort from Kevin Willis, Jack Allen, Mike Savicke and Sean Doucette. Bob Siders got the shutout in net making timely saves all game. Adam Solari got both goals for the Panthers. Chris Stoddard did a great job on face-offs the entire game.  Whitman Hanson will be back at Gallo on Tuesday at 7:30pm in the sectional semifinal to take on top seeded Canton.
The boys basketball team is in familiar territory advancing to the sectional semifinal for the fourth time in five years after beating North Quincy Sunday before a capacity crowd, 75-47.
Four players scored in double figures (Stevie Kelly 17, Nate Amado 15, Ben Rice 12, Cole Levangie 10) as the Panthers have now won 20 straight and improve to 22-2 to advance to Wednesday nights (5:30pm) sectional semifinal at Taunton High School against Westwood.

Whitman-Hanson Senior Wrestling Captain Bethany Ralph placed 2nd at the Mass State Girls Wrestling Championships today at Methuen HS. Bethany finished her High School career as runner up in the State Tournament. Bethany pinned her first 2 opponents on the way to the finals but lost in the 120 pound Finals.

This is the second straight year that Bethany has placed runner-up at the State Tournament.

Senior captain Steve Brooks ended his career at all states by dropping his matches.  
But he ends with 32 pins this season (ties school record) and 38 wins -  absolutely incredible.  Most importantly he was a fantastic leader and a selfless servant to his team and our school.

The first round of the MIAA state tournament kicked off Wednesday night for the #9 Whitman Hanson girls basketball team and the girls came away with their first tournament victory since 2012.  The Panthers defeated #8 Barnstable by the score of 45-33. Whitman Hanson was solid all night on defense, led by Junior Rylie Harlow. Senior Brittany Gacica paced the Panthers with 12 points and Junior point guard Reese Codero followed up with 11 points. The first half was closely fought throughout and the Panthers found themselves trailing 16-15 at the half. In the third quarter, the Panthers found some breathing room when they outscored the Red Raiders 16-5. Unfortunately the ride ended Saturday losing to a powerful Bridgewater Raynham squad.  But it was an outstanding season and we will miss seniors Olivia Martin and Brittany Gacicia who have been instrumental in building a strong foundation for the future of our program.

The Whitman Hanson /Silver Lake girls hockey team lost a very competitive game in the State Tourney Thursday to a very good Waltham team 5-3. Senior Alyssa Murphy had 2 goals and an assist to end her high school career, while Emily McDonald scored the other goal for WHSL. Shea Kelleher finished off a great freshman year with 2 assists. Kat Gilbert played great in net to keep the team in the game with 5 breakaway saves among her 28 saves. Alyssa finishes the year with 31 goals and 8 assists for the season and 124 career points.


3/8 Update


This was a terrific winter for our athletic program as so many of our teams qualified for the tournament and competed at a high level.  The boys hockey team, who only four years ago had a one win season, advanced all the way to the sectional semifinals where they lost to one of the best teams in the state on Tuesday night.  Despite the loss, we couldn’t be more proud of the way the student athletes and coaches represented Panther nation.

The boys basketball team added more hardware to the trophy case on Saturday night by winning their third south sectional title in the last 5 years.  Despite losing on opening night of the season back in early December, the team stayed united and reeled off 22 straight wins to with the Patriot league title and now the sectional championship.  Their 24 wins this season ties a school record for wins in a single season by any sports team (the 2016 boys basketball team also won 24).  The season continues on Wednesday night at the Boston Garden as the Panthers take on Beverly High School in the Eastern Massachusetts state championship at 7:15pm.  There are fan busses for those who would like to attend. You can click on this link to purchase your tickets.  The $25 fee includes the bus and ticket to the game.  If you would like to ride the fan bus, please purchase your tickets online at the link below before 10am on Tuesday.
