|Baseball "Rings" up another New England title|
Last week, members of the varsity baseball team were presented with rings in recognition for winning their third consecutive New England baseball championship last spring. In a rematch of the 2014 final, the Hornets bested Providence Country Day of Rhode Island 6-0. The Hornets were led by seniors Jorge Mendoza, Brandon Ginnetti, and Michael DeMartino, who is currently on the SCSU roster. The victory marked the sixth overall NE title for the baseball program. Congratulations to the entire team and coaching staff.
|Hornets Topple Titans|
Last Saturday's non-league contest against Wilbraham & Monson Academy certainly looked, at least on paper, to be a true test for the Hornets. Though the team was on a 4-0 roll, they were playing in unfamiliar territory against a perennially tough program whom they had never faced before. Nevertheless, the Hornets had clearly done their homework and executed an excellent game plan on both sides of the ball to cruise to an impressive 56-34 victory.
The sound preparation was clearly evident when Kyle Williams intercepted four Titan passes. Meanwhile, HH quarterback Kyle Smith went 28-for-40 for 401 passing yards and five touchdowns, while also scoring two on the ground himself. Two of the touchdown catches were by senior Andy Natale, who had seven receptions and 128 yards in all. Williams also caught a touchdown, and Corey Millhouse caught two TDs, while Justise Antrum found the end zone after a 66 yard scamper to complete the scoring. Though the host Titans managed to put points on the board, they had no real answer for the Hornet scoring machine.
The team hosts King School from Stamford in a Fairchester League match-up this Homecoming weekend.
Hamden Hall 22 12 14 8 — 56
Wilbraham & Monson 13 7 6 8 — 34
|Undefeated Football Continues to Roll|
On Saturday, the 4-0 varsity football squad will seek to extend its impressive undefeated run when it travels to Wilbraham & Monson Academy located in the Springfield, MA area. The Hornets are coming off a solid 58-19 win over FAA rival St. Luke's of New Canaan. However, the host Titans also looked good in their victory over St. Luke's, and will pose a major challenge for Coach Linta and the team. Nevertheless, last week's offensive display should give the Hornets plenty of confidence going into this showdown.
The Hornets had displayed a well balanced attack in their early contests, with senior quarterback Kyle Smith leading the air attack, while the Hornets' ground game featured multiple threats in the backfield such as Kyle Williams and Justise Antrum. But when The Storm of St. Luke's arrived last Friday night, they brought the inclement weather with them, which hindered the Hornets' air game. Relying primarily, then, on their running game, the Hornets were relentless. Michael Johnson ran for 137 yards and two touchdowns. Corey Millhouse and Zach Balabon continued to contribute key plays. Both had interceptions for touchdowns of 70 and 40 yards respectively, while Millhouse also scored on an 85-yard kickoff return and a 20-yard pass from Kyle Smith.
The victory gives the Hornets a 2-0 league record as they chase a Fairchester title. Though this weekend's game is a non-league contest, the Hornets are also clearly eager to earn another New England Prep Bowl bid in November. A win over the Titans would be a "giant" victory. Go Hornets!!!
|Alum Dylan Millhouse Leads Wesleyan over Yale in Baseball Classic|
Corey Millhouse might be tearing it up for the Hornets on the football field, but older brother, Dylan (Class of 2014) continues to excel on the baseball diamond. Last week Dylan, a sophomore at Wesleyan, led the Cardinals to a 6-3 victory over Yale in the 150th anniversary game between the local rivals. Millhouse came on in relief in the 9th and pitched 3 scoreless innings, inducing a double play to get out of a jam in the 10th. In the top of the 11th, Millhouse went deep with a bases clearing triple to provide the winning cushion. He then pitched a 1-2-3 bottom frame to secure the win.

|Alums Keep on Kickin'|
Their high school careers may be over, but these HH alums are having a great time playing club soccer at Connecticut College.
Luca Powell ('12), Dan Reynolds ('13), Austin DiMartino ('15) and Vivian Vigliotti ('12) are seen here having just played against neighboring rivals Coast Guard Academy.
|Boys Soccer on Firm Ground|
The Boys Varsity Soccer team is off to a solid start under the leadership of new head coach, Douglas Cunningham. Having dropped their season opener, the Hornets have dominated the opposition in their last two contests. On Saturday, September 19th, the Hornets traveled to Waterford, where they defeated the Williams School 4-1. Freshman Michael Lanouette of Hamden and junior Jonas Lustbader of Weston led the attack. In attendance at the game was recent grad Austin DiMartino, HH's outstanding goalkeeper, who is a freshman at nearby Connecticut College in New London.
Last Saturday, HH beat Storm King School 6-1. The Cougars of NY are the defending Hudson Valley League champs, but were no match for the Hornets. Michael Lanouette again led the way, recording a hat trick. Senior Marco Fontana chipped in two more, and Jonas Lustbader completed the scoring. Jake Teplitzky was steady in the net, while the likes of Michael DiMartino and Jannik Eggerman provided plenty of hard work and support in the middle. The team travels to Rye, NY on Tuesday.
|Football Tops Kingswood in Barnburner to Remain Undefeated|
In a somewhat forgettable movie called Last Man Standing, Bruce Willis finds himself in a hostile town where he is beset by villains and must fend for his life non-stop for the entire length of the film. Last Saturday the Hamden Hall Varsity Football team found themselves in a similar situation as they traveled to West Hartford to battle Kingswood-Oxford, one of their chief rivals in the Fairchester League; however, the battle was anything but forgettable. Though the hosts boasted two Division 1 'hitmen', the visiting Hornets somehow managed to remain a step ahead of the competition. As the final whistle blew and the dust settled on the field, the Hornets were able to walk away with an impressive 50-48 win, outlasting the Wyverns on their own home turf.
Senior quarterback, Kyle Smith, completed 20-of-35 passes for 330 yards and two touchdowns. Little did he realize that his completions of the two point conversions would be the most important passes of the game. Justise Antrum had an impressive day running the ball, and scored three times. Nevertheless, K-O always had a response, and usually University of North Carolina prospect, Isaiah Wright, was involved, scoring 5 touchdowns, three in the air and two off big running plays. But with Antrum’s ground game, the Hornets took a 28-21 lead at halftime. In the third quarter, Smith found Kyle Williams for a 20 yard TD strike and Michael Johnson punched one in from 3 yards out to extend the lead, but the Wyverns hung tough and only trailed by a touchdown at the end of the third quarter. The hosts briefly took the lead, but senior Kevin Johns foiled the point after attempt. The next pivotal play was senior Andy Natale’s dramatic 82 yard scamper off a fumble recovery for a touchdown and a lead that put the game out of reach. Natale also finished with six catches for 92 yards, while Zak Balabon led the defense with 11 tackles. With the win, the Hornets are now 3-0 and ranked the #7 prep team in New England in all classes.
|Matt Lettiero Earns Invite to National Swimming Championships|
Rising senior Matthew Lettiero made the YMCA swimming national cut for the 100 breast stroke. Matt will be traveling to Indiana for the National Swim Championships to be held August 3 through August 8. The son of Fran and Rosemary Lettiero of Hamden, Matt is not only a standout on the Hamden Hall swim team with coach Ken Pierson, he also swims for the Cheshire Y Sea Dog Swim Club with coach Sean Farrell. Congratulations to Matt and his family, and good luck in Indiana!
Congratulations to the baseball team upon winning their third consecutive New England baseball tournament crown. On Friday afternoon, the Hornets defeated Providence Country Day 6-0. The game was played at Salem State University in Massachusetts, and featured a rematch from last year's final.
Any PCD hopes of avenging last year's 2-1 outcome were quickly dashed, however, by a strong start from the Hornets. Senior catcher, Michael DeMartino, led the way with three hits, including a homerun. Zach Balabon, Will Rhone, and Austin DeFilippo added to the offense, connecting for two hits apiece. One of Rhone's hits was a triple. Ron LoRicco also hit a three bagger, while Marco Fontana hit a double, as the Hornets established a four run lead by the top of the second inning. Meanwhile, Jorge Mendoza limited the Knights to a scattering of 6 hits to produce the shutout, and finished the season with a 5-1 record on the mound.
Hamden Hall finished the season with a strong 15-5 record, while PCD finished at 13-7. Coach Fontana and the staff will surely be already planning on the "fourpeat", and with so much of the well balanced squad returning next year, the Hornets could be in terrific shape to defend their impressive title run. Congratulations again to the entire team, coaching staff, families and fans who supported the team.
|Baseball Advances to New England Final|
Having soundly defeated Canterbury 14-1 in the first round of the New England tournament, Hamden Hall defeated King School of Stamford in the tournament semifinal on Wednesday 7-4 and now advances to today's championship final. Though the Hornets jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the 2nd, the visiting Vikings roared back with three runs in the top of the 4th, and added what they might have believed to be an insurance run in the 6th to take a 4-2 lead. However, the Hornets were determined not to lose their chance to defend their title again, and answered with a fantastic 5 run rally in the bottom of the 6th. The Hornet offense was led by Jorge Mendoza and Andrew Natale who had 2 RBIs and 2 hits apiece, including a triple for each. Marco Fontana added 2 more hits, including a double, driving in 2 more and scoring 2 himself. Austin DeFilippo also hit a double. Zach Balabon went 5 innings and 8th grader, Ryan Doherty, got credit for the win. The Hornets improve to 13-5, and now square off against Providence Country Day in the final. The game takes place at Salem State University in Massachusetts at 5:00. PCD beat Pingree 3-2 in the other semi final game. This final will see a rematch from last year's title game when the Hornets defeated the Knights 2-1 to win their second NE title in a row. Will we see a "threepeat"? Go Hornets!
