Team unbeaten for third straight year
The Hanover sixth-grade travel basketball team, coached by Tim Buckley and Tom Carroll, recorded its third consecutive perfect season, going 31-0 and winning the South Shore League’s A division regular season and tournament titles.
“What makes it so satisfying is that the things people who watch us play compliment us on are the very same things we stress as coaches,’’ said Buckley, “passing, defense, attitude, behavior, and hustle.’’
The team, 91-0 since they were fourth-graders and winners of three outside tournaments, including its own invitational, is composed of brothers Steven and Michael Simon, and Will and James Clarkson, and Stephen Gill , Joe Clinton, Andrew Carroll, Jackson Butler, and Kevin Buckley .
