WH Golf Team Gives Back

The Whitman Hanson golf team spent almost three hours at the Whitman Food Pantry this morning for their community service project. During their time there, players were able to clean, sort, and reorganize almost the entire pantry.

Each player took their role today seriously, maximizing their efforts in order to show their appreciation for all the good fortune and support their community has provided them over the years.

As the regular season comes to a close, with only one final match against Hanover on Monday, the team is still hungry to end the season with a win; their strong play as of late has them excited for the state tournament qualifying round held at Easton Country Club on Tuesday, Oct. 24.

Panther Golf Defeats Quincy

The Whitman Hanson golf team clinched a berth today to the state tournament qualifying round with their win over the Quincy Presidents 242-277. The Team is 9-8 on the season with one match remaining.

Tonight was extra special for the team, as it was senior night. With nine seniors on the team, eight took the course with something to prove: not only could they punch the team's ticket to the post season, but they were also playing in honor of fellow senior Ryan Sawtelle's mother, who tragically lost her battle with colon cancer last spring. Every member on the team wore blue bracelets and hats with her initials "LSS" embroidered on the back.

Each senior came off the 9th green to an ovation by teammates, coaches, and parents. The first group was Anthony Palmacci and Nick Duffy. Anthony shot the day's low with a 1 over par, 35, which got the Panthers off to a great start. The next group consisted of captain JP Drier and Matt Stanish, who both played extremely well; JP carded a 3 over par, while Stanish turned in an impressive 2 over par. Tommy Bombardier and Ryan Sawtelle made up the third group and Aidan Cotter and David Murphy were in the fourth pairing. Unfortunately, due to an injury, Cam Carpenter, who was the ninth senior, was ineligible for today's match.

A special thanks goes out to all the parents of both seniors and underclassmen for helping to make this such a memorable night. The team is hoping to keep their two match win streak alive once more as they host Hanover on Monday for their final match of the season.[image1.jpeg]

Panthers Slay the Dragons

For the first time in team history, the Whitman Hanson Golf Team defeated the Duxbury Dragons today at Ridder Golf Course 232-241 to even their record at 8-8 to keep their hopes for the state tournament alive.

The historic upset was led by senior Anthony Palmacci, who scored the day's low of 1 over par, 35. Junior captain Owen Manning, who was paired with Palmacci, carded a 2 over par to help set the tone for the day. Senior Matt Stanish and junior Ed Scriven both finished 5 over, while senior captain JP Drier had a solid 6 over par performance.

The victory was truly a team effort and well deserved. They hope to punch their ticket to the state tournament tomorrow on their senior night, as they host Quincy.

Panther Golf Loses to Plymouth North

The WH golf team entered today's match against the Plymouth North Blue Eagles at Plymouth Country Club two wins shy of qualifying for the state tournament. Despite taking down PN earlier in the season, they lost today 247-258 to drop their record to 7-8 overall with three matches left in the season.

Junior captain Owen Manning lead the way for the Panthers with his 4 over par performance, and senior Tommy Bombardier continued his streak of playing well with a 5 over par; unfortunately, it wasn't enough to push them to victory.

The team is home for their final three matches, which starts tomorrow against league leading Duxbury.

Panthers Fall to Harbormen

The WH golf squad dropped a close one to a very talented Hingham team at Ridder Farm Golf Course today 223-230.

Sophomore Matt Korzec's even par performance, along with junior captain Owen Manning and senior Tommy Bombardier both carding a 4 over par, gave the Panthers a good chance to upset the visiting Harbormen, but couldn't overcome the visitors' #6 and #7 players, who both shot 1 over on the day to seal the match. Despite the loss, this was WH's best overall team performance: seniors Anthony Palmacci, Nick Duffy, and Matt Stanish all contributed with a 6 over par.

The loss drops the Panthers record to 7-7 overall with only four matches remaining on the schedule; in order to qualify for the state tournament, the team need to win at least two of those matches. They begin that quest on Tuesday when they travel to Plymouth Country Club to take on the underrated Plymouth North Blue Eagles.

WH Defeats SL

The Whitman Hanson Golf Team picked up their seventh win on the season today at Halifax Country Club, defeating the Silver Lake Lakers 258-260 to improve to 7-6 overall.

Senior captain JP Drier lead the Panthers to victory today with his 5 over par, 41. The team was down by four strokes after the first group came in, but the second pairing of seniors Nick Duffy and Anthony Palmacci were able to cut the lead down to two. After the third groups tied each other, the score remained the same and the Panthers needed a 44 or better from one of the final two spots to win. Senior Tommy Bombardier, golfing in the seven spot, came up huge with his 43 on the day to catapult the team from being down two strokes to winning by two.

The win was a little sweeter for WH, as they were able to avenge their season opening loss by only 8 strokes to the Lakers. Tomorrow they hope to do the same as they welcome Hingham to Ridder Farm.

Panther Golf Improves to 5-4

The Panther Golf team improved their record to 5-6 overall today, as they defeated East Bridgewater in a non-league contest 35-19 in match-play style.

Jr captain Owen Manning was the star of the day, as he chipped in for eagle on the 5th hole to finish with an even par, 34 and defeat his man 6-3. His fellow captain, senior JP Drier, defeated his man 6.5-2-5 to help catapult the team forward, but it was the play of the 5th and 6th position players that really helped to make this a runaway: sophomore Matt Korzec won 7.5-1.5, while junior Ed Scriven won 8-1.

It was another team victory, especially in the match-play format, to keep the Panthers headed in the right direction.

Panther Golf Drops Another

The WH golf team lost a tight one to Hanover today at Harmon Golf Course by only four strokes 257-261.

Despite senior Anthony Palmacci and junior captain Owen Manning both shooting a 5 over 40, and sophomore Matt Korzec carding a 6 over par performance, the Panthers couldn't close the gap enough to contend with the now 8-1 Indians.

With their record at 4-6 overall with only 8 matches left to play, the team hopes to get back on the winning side of things tomorrow as they face off against East Bridgewater at Ridder Farm Golf Course.
