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
