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).
