Fall Sports Update: Teams Preparing for Post-Season

Special Thanks to Mr. Hutchison, HHS Athletics Director

Excitement for our Hanover Hawks is growing as teams prepare for the postseason.  This year marks the first MIAA Statewide Tournament, different from past years when the tournament began within regional sections.  Along with this new format is a new seeding system based on power rankings and anticipation is growing.

Current MIAA Power Rankings (for applicable fall sports)

Boys Soccer (4-9-2): Currently ranked 16th out of 62 teams in Division 3.

Field Hockey (5-6-1): Currently ranked 18th out of 54 teams in Division 3.

Football (4-2): Currently ranked 6th out of 31 teams in Division 3.

Girls Soccer (12-3): Currently ranked 4th out of 66 teams in Division 3.

Volleyball (4-13): Currently ranked 28th out of 57 teams in Division 3.

The regular season for the majority of fall sports ends next weekend.  There are a few opportunities to come to HHS to support your Hawks as they finish the regular season.  For links to schedules for each team, visit the MIAA Schedules tab on the Hanover Athletics website.

Cheer, Cross Country, Golf

There are three other fall programs that power rankings do not apply; competition cheer, cross country, and golf.  The competition cheer team will compete Oct. 23 at their first competition of the season, the Duxbury Invitational.  The squad is scheduled to perform at 11:25 AM and spectators are permitted.  Best of luck to the competition cheer team at the Duxbury Invitational.

The cross country teams have completed the regular season and are in preparation for the Patriot League Championship, hosted at the Marshfield Fair Grounds on Oct. 30.  Afterward, the teams will participate in one last invitational before competing in the MIAA Cross Country tournament on Nov. 13 at Stanley Park in Westfield.

The golf season is complete and the program celebrated its successes at a team gathering Oct. 21.  Congratulations to the coaching staff and student-athletes on a successful season.  A special congratulations to the following Patriot League Award recipients: Scholar-Athlete Liam Monahan, Sportsmanship recipient Charlie Cataldo, and All-Stars Charlie Cataldo and Chris Doherty.

  1. These articles were all relative and informative. They were brief enough to read all the way through and not too long to lose interest. The article about fall sports was great and filled me in on what happened during the season. I didn’t run XC this year so it was nice to see how the team did.


  2. This article was very informative on the current status of all Fall sports teams. Keeping all the information together and percise allowed me to stay focused throughout the reading. This article also applied to me as I’m a student at HHS and I was wondering on the status if the sports teams.
