3 Cheers for the 2018-2019 HHS Captains!

Clara Boland (#4, D/F), Emma Tysinger (#12, D), and Bryn Kable (#14, D) (above, left to right) will captain next year’s HHS girls ice hockey team.   The torch has passed! While all 3 have played stalwart defense for the Marauders, Clara Boland transitioned (impressively) with a Whatever it Takes attitude toward the end of the season to forward, and both Emma Tysinger and Bryn Kable have eye opening offensive rush skills as well. It is a season we are looking forward to, and only 8 months to go!

“Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better”.

 “Think little goals and expect little achievement. Think big goals and win big success “.

We know these three are up to the task of honoring the HHS tradition.  Congratulations to the new captains!

End of the Season Banquet Monday


Time rolls by the clock don’t stop

I wish I had a few more drops

Of the good stuff, the good times

Oh but they just keep on flying

Right on by like it ain’t nothing

Wish I had me a pause button

Moments like those Lord knows I’d hit it

And give myself five more minutes

Time to get together to celebrate and remember the highlights of the 2017-2018 season!  Reminder that the end of the “Whatever it Takes” season banquet is this Monday night at 6:00.   It has only been a week without a practice or a team gathering– it seems like much longer!  Players, remember to bring your uniforms, and practice jerseys washed and ready to go for next season…. it will be here soon enough! For the seniors, moving on next year, hear is your pause button!


Wash your Uniforms

Wash and return your uniforms, please!

Brothers John and Dick Dodds: More than A Hanover Hockey Success Story!


Boy’s Hanover Coach Dick Dodds (left) and Girls Hanover Coach  John Dodds – brothers, coaches, former HHS players

If only the story could delve further into HOW the Dodds brothers have, year after year, given special coaching touches to meld the  Hanover Hockey program into the very unique and wonderful  program that it is! The thoughtful and meaningful traditions that characterize the programs for these teams is second to none in terms of generating player enthusiasm, allegiance, diligence and loyalty. Not to mention top performance!  It’s a top of the class experience for Hanover High players that learn to honor effort, schoolwork, community service, and teamwork.  They also learn the value of special heartfelt traditions that really make the experience unique. The program is the hockey experience and so much more for these high schoolers.

Here is a link to the Union Leader’s article about the Dodds brothers.  There is more than meets the eye, but this timely and apt Roger Brown The State of Sports Manchester Union Leader article begins to capture the special gifts these two brothers have brought to the Hanover High School hockey family.

State Champions!!!

The Hanover team brought their magic to SNHU Arena, in a performance win, 7-3!  1-1 after the first period, it was clear this would be a physical game.  The Marauders stuck to their game plan, and  came out in the second putting on  the pressure.   Capitalizing on quick moves, and team effort opportunities, HHS ended period two with a great lead, 6-3!  Continuing their pressure, the girls worked together,  passing the puck accurately, quickly and often, playing as a team, and following the game plan. This story ends with the win!
