The Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School football team had not lost a regular season game since early October in 2010 - nearly two years - before Saturday.
The Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School football team has been on quite a run - a streak of 16 straight regular season wins that dates back to Oct. 8, 2010. It included an undefeated regular season in 2011 that saw the team go to the Div. 3A Super Bowl before a heartbreaking loss to Bourne High School. But that streak came to an end on Saturday afternoon in West Newbury when the Generals lost to Pentucket High School 34-15, The Salem News reports. The Generals were up 7-6 at halftime after giving up a first quarter touchdown and then scoring their own, also in the first quarter. But it was the second half when the Sachems blew open the game behind runs of 7, 10 and 42 yards by Cody Rothwell, according to the Salem News. The Generals are …

After the Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School girls' tennis team advanced to the Div. 3 North semifinals last season, coach Claudia Hawks said, “Being in the semis of states was icing on the cake.” Now the Generals boast its Nos. 1 and 3 singles players from last year back for another season, as well as both players from the No. 2 doubles team. The expectations are high and the outlook positive. Senior Charlotte Horton leads the way as the top singles player on the team, and possibly in the Cape Ann League. She will serve as co-captain with Carson Smiley. Sophomore Caroline Gribbell, who played at No. 3 singles in 2011, also returns. Horton finished with an overall record of 9-8; Gribbell, who missed some time during the campaign, may …

The high school boys' tennis team has new batch of upperclassmen ready to take over for last year's graduates.
The good thing for a boys' tennis program like the one at Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School is that there are so many top-notch players that usually the varsity squad is littered with upperclassmen. The downside for players who probably could be playing singles at another school is they have to wait their turn. But that also gives them the incentive to prove their worth when the opportunity affords it. The Generals once again will be upperclassmen-heavy this spring, with three seniors who played varsity on last year’s Cape Ann League Small championship squad. “We definitely have a lot of seniors this year. It will be good,” said coach Joe Maher, who is in his 14th season at the helm. “The funny thing is of the seniors only three of them…

You only have one chance to do something monumental as a senior. And Hamilton-Wenham’s Elliot Burr was seconds from being remembered for something huge in his final season - in a negative way. But Burr, and his team, redeemed themselves. And in the process kept their hopes for a second straight playoff appearance alive. After his fumble midway through the third quarter was taken back by Tyler Palumbo for a Lynnfield touchdown to put the Generals in an 8-point hole, he came back to score and convert the two-point rush with 37 ticks remaining on the clock to tie the game.
