Fall Sports Awards 2018
“We had a great fall season, with a total of 192 athletes participating in fall sports,” said Athletic Director, Kelly Bermes as she welcomed student athletes, parents, and community members to the 2018 Fall Sports Awards program. “We had two teams that earned Greater South Shore Conference Championships. Boys Cross Country and Boy’s Tennis both earned titles. This is the first time in recent history Boy’s Tennis captured that title and they did so with a new Head Coach, Eric Stark.”
Athletic Director, Kelly Bermes welcomes athletes and guest to the 2018 Fall Sports Awards.
Additional new coaches added to the Hanover roster include Girls’ Volleyball Coach, Rochelle Scally and Head Football Coach, Brian Parker. Ms. Bermes recognized Seniors by thanking them. "You have given us four good years and represented us well. I want to wish you the best in the future.”
“Our greatest winners are our student athletes,” continued Ms. Bermes. “You often hear me say that our student athletes are students first and athletes second. I mean that, and that is why we give an award for the team with the highest grade point average (GPA),” explained Ms. Bermes. “We had two teams that were very close when it came to this award. The second place team, and it was close, was our Girls Cross Country team with a 3.62 team GPA. They were edged out by Boy’s Tennis with a 3.68 team GPA.” The overall GPA for all fall sports was a very healthy 3.29. “As you can see, our kids are working hard in the classroom and hard in their sports.”
