Alan Dabney

As mens basketball enters the
postseason, they will be relying
heavily on senior Alan Dabney.
Hanover’s success would not have
been possible without the star play
from Dabney.
He averages a double double
every game in points and rebounds.
Without that kind of performance
each game there is no way Hanover
would be where they are
now.
Although he is the team’s leading
scorer, it has not been just the
efforts of Dabney that have given
the Hawks success. Going into the
playoffs Dabney knows that team
play will be crucial.
“I think that we’ll need to get
everyone involved. The power of
the team is the only way we are
going to go far into the postseason,”
Dabney said.

Mattie Grant

The girls swim team has seen
success these past two years. Much
of this can be attributed to junior
Mattie Grant. She has undoubtedly
helped to bring the team to the level
they are at now.
In doing so, she has won a total
of three conference titles. Two
of these were from the conference
meet this year, where she came in
first for the 400 and 200 free and the
team captured the title.
“It was nice to win conferences
two years in a row as a team. Previous
to that we had an awful team
and didn’t win a meet for the
whole season. Now we have a morale
booster and can say we’re conference
champs,” Grant said.
