• For the first time since 1986, Whitman-Hanson baseball will have a new baseball coach. John Graham, a former Red Sox minor league player, takes over for Pat Forbes, who retired early last month. Pat led the Panthers to 5 league titles in his 25 years at the helm and guided the team to the south sectional finals in 1990. For more on John and Pat, click here for the official press release.
• More than 40 Whitman-Hanson coaches underwent CPR/AED training this week. Another 40 will participate in a coach’s education class on Saturday here at Whitman-Hanson. The class is run by the MIAA in conjunction with the national federation. Beginning in the fall, every Whitman-Hanson coach will meet the state requirements for coaching certification and training.
• Whitman-Hanson senior Colin McSweeney wrapped up his career at the New England Championships in Providence last weekend. Colin, who suffered a knee injury at states, competed in two very tight matches despite not being 100%. We congratulate him on one of the best season’s in school history.
• Junior Abby Baker was the top Massachusetts runner in the 1000 meter race at New Englands. She finished 11th overall running her second best time of 3:01.
• Whitman-Hanson welcomes 4 new head coaches this Spring. Megan Methven (girls lacrosse), Stan Ungechauer (boys lacrosse), John Graham (baseball) and Jeff Andrews (boys track). We are confident that all 4 will do well as they begin their new challenge.
