Students of the Month

Chess Team AIA State Champions

They went with a perfect 5-0 to the tournament, completing their perfect 19-0 season, which was the first in school history!!


As the top-seeded varsity team, Rick Sun, Kenneth Su, Joseph Wang, Michael Chen and Vincent Sin defeated the second, third and fourth seeds in three straight matches en route to their title. Their compilation of 54 wins, 2 losses and 1 tie over the last three seasons has given them their second title in three years, only missing the title last year on tiebreaks.


With the chess team only in their fourth season, they have truly accomplished a great feat. In addition, Aryan Eksambe took first in the JV section and Harry Winsberg also took a top-10 finish. Anvi Joshi, Miro Vanek and Andrew Quan rounded out yet another strong showing of Hamilton's depth in the JV section, scoring well above expectations.

Hamilton Swim & Dive

Ian Pickles dives into the water in the boys 200-yard freestyle relay during the AIA Division Swim and Dive State Championships at the Kino Aquatic Center.


We had a great state meet with all six of our relays making it back the second day into top 16 and two of the boys relays making it into top 8 and moving on to the Meet of Champions. All members of the 400 free relay crushed their personal best times in the 100 free, all going 48 and 49 seconds (Chance Warriner, Kyle Stocek, Andrew Li and Ian Pickles). Overall the boys finished 9th as a team and the girls finished 12th. The best part is we will be keeping all but three of these swimmers and divers for next year.

DECA/Marketing News

Hey Hamilton Fam! Look at what's happening in the DECA/Marketing Department. Dr. Thompson took 78 of her students to the JA Finance Park Simulation on November 6th. Not only did the students show-up in their best DIGGS! but, they also knocked it out of the park with their financial and marketing savvy!
