Listen up for the update of our bowling team’s big win. This season for east hamilton’s bowling team has been their best season ever! Coach Tim Goode tell the story of their Saturday game and how well they did. “The girls made sectionals and made 18-7 against Blackman and made 2,900 pins! They won even though Blackman made 3,500 pins, and fortunately for us Blackman lost in the state tournament.” Even though the girls had all of theses successes, the boys unfortunately did not make it to sectionals. Even with this loss, we’ve made more matches with anyone in the state, and they’ve had 3 straight winning seasons. Make sure when you see the bowling team you Congratulate them! Great job to the bowling team. Continue to have much success.
:Congrats to our East Hamilton girl bowlers for making it so sub-state. Although the game was supposed to be Saturday the 13th, inclement winter weather has moved it to Monday the 15th. The team that will be competed against is Blackman, the same school our boys basketball team played at state last year. 20 games this season have reached above the 500 point range, meaning our ladies are bowling incredibly. Another unique thing about our team is that there are 10 members on it, when the usual number is 4 or 5. This allows players to work together more effectively, while being able to alternate ladies as well. If the team wins on Monday, they will go to the TSSAA State Bowling Tournament on January 19-20 in Smyrna, TN.

On Thursday, December 7, the Lady Canes fought an arduous fight against Houston High School. The first period started off with Houston scoring the first point which started a rally of shots. “I knew that they were competition from the first period of the game,” expressed Madison Hayes. First period finally ended with East Hamilton 15 and Houston 14. By halftime hearts were beating, palms sweating, and nerves rattling because the score was tied 28-28. “I wasn’t nervous. I knew we had to come back stronger and eliminate errors,” says Kyana.
When the Lady Canes approached their opponents, the student section roared with the sound “let's go hurricanes let's go!” The third period started off with the lady canes scoring and Houston foulings Hayes. Hayes stepped up to the free throw line and missed the first free throw but made it up by making the second one, giving the canes a three point lead. “My goal is to make it to state with my team, so this game made me want that even more.” The three point lead did not stop Houston because they sent an immediate response with a layup making it a one point difference in the third period.
Finally the lady canes made a huge impact on the scoreboard by passing the ball continuously until there was a open shot for Maleigh Moon to score a three pointer. Making a big eleven point difference. In the fourth quarter lady canes dominated and with Dashia Hughley scoring a layup while getting fouled and Madison Hayes. “Them fouling us really helped because we consistently made free throws which made us ahead,” said Hayes. The final score was 45 to 6, the Lady canes kept their undefeated making it one step closer to state.

The East Hamilton Varsity Volleyball team has managed to impress bystanders this season. Winning nearly all of their games, the girls have passed, set, and hit their way straight into state, leading us into an exciting two days of exhilarating game play.
On Tuesday, the girls had many supporters following them to Murfreesboro, the student section packed for their first state game of the year. The team exerted phenomenal attitudes, and student leadership was strong as the girls got their first win against Sullivan South
Later in the day, the girls competed against Portland High, and unfortunately lost after a hard battle, the final third set score 26-28. “They just didn’t make any mistakes,” an East Hamilton parent commented on the opposing team’s skill. “Our girls fought, though. It was a good game.”
On Tuesday the team went into the Murphy’s Center at MTSU to play against Signal Mountain High School. Signal won the first set, and East Hamilton won the second. Nerves were high, and the student section cheered as the two teams fought back and forth.
Signal won the third set, and the girls entered into the fourth with a driven intensity that radiated into the bleachers. After a long fight, Signal won by two points, a final score of 26-28.
While East Hamilton Volleyball would have loved to earn the title “State Champions,” the morale of the team is still high. Captain Taryn Robinson was satisfied with their performance, “I’m happy to play with a team like this. They’re like my little sisters. I love them all. We worked hard.” Next year, the girls are confident that they will continue to succeed, and are fully expecting to step back on the court at state again.
East Hamilton’s football team lost 49-24 to Soddy Daisy High School on Friday, August 25. Despite the loss at our first home game of the season, there were notable people to be recognized, such as Devontay Tipton, #3, who was able to score with blocking assistance from the team. Another player to recognize is Drako Wise, #2, who also made a touchdown. Darien Hill, #19, should also be recognized for still standing strong after getting injured in the third quarter. The audience showed proper recognition by dedicating a moment of silence for him while the players knelt on the field and the coaches prayed. Much support came from the audience, especially the student section. Many students showed extra school spirit by coming to the game early to paint themselves and each other school colors and a few football players’ numbers. Afterwards, the student section evoked a tradition by running into the field with the players. Both students and football players plan on bringing just as much hope and spirit to future football games. Player #6 on the team showed this faith in his team by saying, “We’re coming back strong this Friday, believe that.”
