During the Wisconsin Cross Country Coaches Association (WCCCA) Clinic this past weekend, SJCA alumnus Hamilton Beal was inducted into the WCCCA Hall of Fame.
"Hamilton Beal was one of the premier runners in school history, winning two state titles in cross country and one in track, earned 12 varsity letters and set several school records. Beal enjoyed an undefeated season in 1999, including his second WISAA Division 2 state title. He also won the Lakeshore Conference title in 1997 and 1999, the Kenosha County title in 1999 and was all-state, all-conference and all-county in each of his three varsity seasons. In 1998, he was a member of the school’s record-setting 3,200-meter relay team that won a state crown. He won conference titles in the two-mile, 800- and 1600-meters. In 2000, he won the 1,600-meter state title to close out his high school career. Beal was voted twice as team most valuable and received both the Dominick and Amelia Tirabassi and Holy Rosary Outstanding Athlete awards in 2000."
