Hamilton Robotics Team

The Plumbers and Pipefitters UA Local 469 recently hosted some members of Hamilton's Robotics Team at the union's local training facility. After a brief period of welding instruction, the team members got to weld the aluminum frame and other components of this year's robot while under the watchful eyes of Local 469 welder-instructors. Thanks Local 469 for donating your time and for introducing our students to welding and the associated technologies! Want more information on the Hamilton Microbots FIRST robotics team? Check out the school's website or contact the team's sponsor, Mr. Weeks, at weeks.charles@cusd80.com

Hamilton Wrestling 2018-2019 Season

Your Hamilton Wrestling team capped off a great season with a strong finish at the AIA State Tournament, placing 4th as a team. Underclassmen Isaiah Valenzuela and Jonah Muhammad fell just short of their goal of winning a State Championship by finishing runner up. Donovan Corn (SR) and Freddy Latu (JR) both bounced back from painful losses in the semifinals to finish 3rd in their respective brackets.

We also helped make history by crowing the first ever Girls State Champion, Jennifer Curry. Jennifer has scrapped with the boys since day 1 and has dedicated herself to the sport. There's no doubt she will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in the future as she looks to continue her wrestling career in college. #huskyproud
