State House Visit from Hamilton-Wenham’s Champions

On Wednesday, Representative Hill and I hosted at the State House a special visit by Hamilton-Wenham’s Division 4 High School boys basketball team champions and Division 2 High School girls cross country champions.  We were able to honor the student athletes with citations from our respective legislative branches, gave them tours of the State House, and provided lunch in Nurses Hall of the building.

The boys basketball team recently won its division’s championship game against Sutton, completing an undefeated season and delivering the regional school’s first boys basketball championship in school history.  In November, the girls cross country team won its second straight division championship, as well as completing a dominate run in their region by winning their 9th championship in 10 years in Eastern Massachusetts.

The student athletes were very engaging, and it was wonderful to have had the opportunity to honor them and their coaches as guests at the State House.  There is no doubt that the towns of Hamilton and Wenham are proud of their accomplishments.  Posted is a photo that was taken in the Senate’s chamber.
