Students from Sussex Hamilton High School and 19 other area schools took a walk in some big shoes Thursday when they worked one-on-one with local business leaders at the Junior Achievement Business Challenge at Briggs & Stratton Corp. These teens got the chance to test their intellect at running a business using a hands-on computer simulation.

Kam Cerroni holds the UW-Green Bay record for most consecutive made free throws, and has only one miss all season.
Hamilton High School graduate Kam Cerroni might be the best college basketball free throw shooter in the nation. You won’t find the UW-Green Bay junior’s name among the NCAA Division I rankings, because he doesn’t have enough made shots to qualify. But at 32-for-33 this season, he’s at 97.0 percent, which would be No. 1 in the country. A player needs 2.5 makes per game to be on the list. The only miss this season was against Illinois-Chicago on Jan. 12, and it broke his school-record streak of 40 consecutive made free throws. In his career, Cerroni is 70 of 79 (.886) at the line. That would be best all-time at UW-GB but he needs 100 total makes to qualify, and has another season and a half to get there. Cerroni averages 6.5 points for the …

Defense, offense and special teams all had standout performances as the Chargers moved into the second round against Verona.
The beauty of Hamilton’s 44-9 win over Middleton on Friday in a WIAA Division 1 Level 1 football playoff game was in its completeness. On offense, Drew Patterson rushed for three second-half scores and more than 200 yards. The defense intercepted four passes. And Kenny Lo was perfect on three first-half field goal attempts. Third-seeded Hamilton (7-2) advanced to face second-seeded Verona (8-1), which defeated Oconomowoc 23-13 on Friday. It took very little time for the host Chargers to assert superiority over Middleton (5-4). Jake Knueppel snagged an interception on the third play of the game at his own 43. “That was the most important piece of the game, getting the turnovers,” said Hamilton coach John Damato. “When you’re in a big game …
