Girls relays headline successful day for Chargers.
Sussex-Hamilton is used to people talking about their track teams. Both the boys are girls teams are very deep and both typically finish in the overall top two of each meet they compete in.

Chargers unable to mount any offense in 1-0 loss to the Highlanders
The season-ending game was particularly disheartening for the Hamilton girls soccer team. The Chargers were held without a shot on goal and ended up losing to Homestead, 1-0, in a regional final contest Saturday afternoon at Homestead High School.

Strong showings set up more of the same at Thursday's sectional.
It was the same old story for Brookfield Central’s girls track and field team at Monday’s Hamilton Regional. The Lancers continued their string of dominance from the Greater Metro Conference season by taking first overall with 168 points and sending more than a handful of individuals to Thursday’s sectional.
