Whitman Hanson is well represented in the Patriot Cup with three teams still alive in this first of its kind league tournament.

It was senior Bobby Marshall's turn to take the ball when the baseball team played its first round game for The Patriot Cup down in Plymouth South. Not only did Marshall shut his team's opponent out with a 1-hitter, in the top of the fifth inning he hit a long triple that knocked in senior catcher TJ Whitman, who scored W-H's first run all the way from first with a headfirst slide on a close play.

Then with 2 outs, senior Jack Allen came up and lined a 2-strike single to left to score senior Sam Figueiredo, who had come in to run for Marshall, for Whitman-Hanson's second run.

Bobby Marshall struck out 9 and walked only 1 Plymouth South batter to help Whitman - Hanson get to 9-3 overall.

Co-captain Tommy Marshall, Bobby's brother, and senior Ty Gordon each had a double for Whitman-Hanson.
