Hanover High’s fall sports teams are deep into their seasons and working toward spots in post-season play. This weekend, we celebrate Homecoming with the football team’s 7 pm game Friday at the Harry Gerrish Memorial Field. Spectators will also be treated to performances by both the Cheerleaders and Marching Band. In addition, members of the State Champion Rugby Team will be recognized and the Hanover High School Homecoming King and Queen announced.
Admission for the game is $5 for adults, $3 for senior citizens, and $3 for all students. Two HHS Cheerleaders, Sammi Shisler and Lindsey Hillier, are leading a charge to Black Out Cancer. The students have been selling long-sleeve shirts that they designed. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the local organization Wicked Good Cause. Anyone wearing the Black Out Cancer shirt at the game will be admitted free of charge. Shirts can be purchased before the game at a table located next to the concession stand.
