Panthers Give Back

On Sunday morning, November 4, the clocks turned back. It gave everyone that often needed and much deserved extra hour of sleep; however, members of the Whitman Hanson Golf team and NHS decided to use that extra hour for a different cause: to give back to their community.

The high schoolers split their time in joining forces at the Hanson Food Pantry under the supervision of Hanson resident and site director Chris Cameron, and the old Plymouth County Hospital site, alongside Hanson resident and PCH Reuse Committee member Marianne DiMascio, where students sorted through and organized nearly 1,400 pounds of food items to be categorized and shelved inside, while others planted bulbs, pruned trees, and cleared walkways outside.

It was amazing to see students come together for the greater good and truly make a difference in their community.

Manning Advances to State Finals

Whitman-Hanson senior captain Owen Manning had a great year as a Panther for the 2018 golf season. He had the lowest average on the team, earned team MVP for the second year in a row, as well as being named a Patriot League All-Star, and now, he can finally add "state finalist" to his resume.

Owen started the day strong, shooting even after the first 9 holes at Easton Country Club today in the Division 2 State Qualifying Round. Though he struggled a bit with his putter on the back 9, he finished the day with a 6 over par 77, which was the 3rd lowest score on the day. He was one of 11 players to advance to the finals at Marshfield Country Club next Tuesday as an individual out of the 87 athletes present.

"I'm very proud of Owen, as this has always been his goal to reach this level," said Coach Brian Dempsey. "He missed the cut by 1 stroke last year, so he's been hungry since then to get another chance."

Impressively, this is the fifth time that a Whitman-Hanson player has advanced to the state finals as an individual in the past 7 seasons. Congratulations to Owen and good luck next week!

The Golf Season Officially Ends

The Whitman Hanson Panther Golf squad closed their season today at South Shore Country Club, falling to the league champion Hingham Harbormen 229-256.

Despite the loss, the Panthers finished the season strong with their performance. Captain Owen Manning came out in front again with a 4 over par performance, while sophomore Graham Stewart shot 5 over par, 41. Senior captain Ed Scriven also played well with his 7 over par day and juniors Ian Brown and Brian Fox and sophomore Aidan Miller all contributed with their 8 over par performances.

The team finished the season at 6-11 overall and 5-9 in the league. On Tuesday, Owen will rep the team in the state tournament qualifying round at Easton Country Club, where he is poised to do some damage.

Thanks to all players, parents, and administration for helping to make this season enjoyable. Congratulations to our four seniors for their commitment and dedication to the team, and good luck to Owen next week.

Panther Golf Splits Tri-Match

The Panthers faced off against Pembroke and East Bridgewater in a trimatch at Ridder today. They beat the Pembroke Titans 260-261, but fell to the East Bridgewater Vikings 255-260.

Their record is now 6-9 with their final match tomorrow at Hingham.

Today was also senior night for the Panthers. The four seniors, captain Owen Manning, captain Ed Scriven, Pat Dever, and Griffin Pulkinen were celebrated and cheered on as they walked off the 9th green for the final time as a member of the school squad. Big shoutout to the parents and families for coming out and supporting them on their special day. Also, thank you to Sue Moss who came to capture the memorable day with pictures that can later be found on the school athletic page.

Even though the team is now out of contention for the state tournament, captain Owen will be representing the team on Tuesday at Easton Country Club - he was great again in his play today with a 3 over 37.

Clarification on Panther Golf Match

Just a clarification to the golf team results today against Marshfield: it's not an exhibition. The match still counts toward the team's record and it's an official match it just doesn't count toward qualification for the tournament.

Sorry for any confusion.

Panther Golf Defeated By Hingham

The Whitman Hanson Golf team can't seem to right the ship as the drop another one to Hingham at Ridder today 229-248 to fall to 5-7 overall.

Senior captain Owen Manning continued his team medalist streak with a 4 over par performance while senior Pat Dever played well with his 5 over par, 39. The Harbormen were too talented from top to bottom for the Panthers to keep up with, but are still in the hunt to make the tournament.

They travel to Marshfield Country Club in an exhibition match against Marshfield before they host a trimatch against East Bridgewater and Pembroke on Wednesday, which also happens to be their senior night.

Good luck the rest of the way!
