WH Athletics Update

After more than 650 days, spring sports have finally returned for our students. While most of the rosters are all set, we still have room for any student who wants to join track and field or wrestling. You can email me at to find out how you can join.

As most people know, the governor has changed the guidance for mask requirements outside. However, at this time, we have been informed by the MIAA and EEA that nothing has changed as it relates to high school sports. The good news though is we will be allowing parents and other fans to attend the games this spring. However, we need everyone to cooperate and wear your mask and still maintain social distance from other groups.

We would like to take this time to welcome Whitman Hanson alum Pat Egan as our new boys lacrosse coach. Pat was a star track athlete here at Whitman Hanson but went on to play lacrosse at Bridgewater State. Joining his staff are three WH alum, Hank Moylan, Joe Yakavonis and Dylan Thomas. Chris Ross, who has been a volunteer assistant, has been an incredible help in the transition for our young staff.

Finally, one of the most important aspects of playing high school sports is balancing academics. Each year, two students from every school in the Patriot league are recognized as scholar athletes. We are proud to announce Reese Codero (soccer, basketball and softball) and Theo Kamperides (cross country, indoor track and spring track) are this year's recipients. Both have played all 12 seasons of their high school career and are among the top students academically in our school. Reese will be honored with an on field ceremony prior to her softball game against Silver Lake on May 24th. Theo will be recognized prior to his home track meet against Silver Lake on May 19th.
