HW Girls Tennis Win 3rd MIAA D4 State Title!
Jennifer Caufield

Hamilton-Wenham Girls Tennis (19-2) defeated Lynnfield this past weekend at Massachusetts Institute of Technology's DuPont Courts, 5-0 in the State Finals of the MIAA Division IV State Tournament.  With the win, the Generals secured their third straight State Title and became the first team in school history to reach that accomplishment.  

HW was dominant in their State Tournament run.  The Generals dropped just one set (in a forced tie-breaking super set after the match was already decided) in the two weeks including wins over Hampden Charter, Millis, Sutton, Hopedale, and finally Lynnfield.  The win caps an incredible 64-3 run over the three-year span.

After the match, the Generals were greeted at the town lines of Wenham and Hamilton with a police escort back to school.  Congratulations to each member of the team.  The Girls Tennis program is a true embodiment of what T-E-A-M is all about!  Good luck to the incredible Seniors who were such a huge force behind the General's success the last three years.

The Cape Ann League has presented the Hyland Award to Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School's Athletic Department for the fourth time in the last five years it has been presented (The award was not given in 2021).

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 notably, Hamilton-Wenham led the league in participation rates once again with 76% of the school's student population involved in at least one sport.  Additionally, each of the 22 Varsity Sports hosted by the Regional earned the league's academic distinction. Finally, over 70% of Varsity Teams participated in a Community Service event during their seasons.

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, Girls Soccer, Volleyball, and Girls Lacrosse reaching the Elite Eight.  Boys Tennis reached their third consecutive Final Four.  Girl's Tennis has also reached the Final Four and will attempt to earn their third straight State Title this week.  Factoring into the Hyland Award presentation were league titles for Boys & Girls Cross Country, Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, and Boys Tennis.
