HW Athletics Earns Cape Ann League Hyland Award (6/15/23)
The Cape Ann League has presented its highest honor, the Hyland Award, to Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School's Athletic Department for the third time in the last four years it has been presented.
The Generals also won the award in 2019 and 2020 (No award was presented in 2021 due to the hybrid nature of athletics that year). The distinction is presented to the school that demonstrates overall excellence in athletics in the areas of academic success, community service, participation, sportsmanship, and on-field success.
The Generals scored at or near the top of almost all categories that factor into the award. Most notable, Hamilton-Wenham led the league in participation rates once again with 71% of the school's student population involved in at least one sport. Additionally, each of the 23 Varsity Sports hosted by the Regional earned the league's academic distinction.
The Generals have excelled on the fields of competition this year as well. Over 80% of teams have qualified for the MIAA State Tournament with Boys Soccer and Volleyball reaching the Sweet Sixteen, Girls Soccer, Baseball, and Girls Lacrosse advancing to the Elite Eight, and Boys Tennis reaching their second consecutive Final Four. Girl's Tennis has reached the State Final and will attempt to earn back-to-back State Titles when they face Manchester-Essex later this weekend. Factoring into the Hyland Award presentation were league titles for Boys Cross Country, Golf, Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, Boys Tennis and Girls Tennis
