Home on the Ice
Hamilton’s curling team is back in action with 20 members competing this season under captain Meghan Doherty '14 and president Trevor Howe ’14. The team’s season began in October and will continue until March. Hamilton’s faculty advisor is Professor of Mathematics Richard Bedient, who assists at practice and who is also a curler at the team's home ice Utica Curling Club in Whitesboro.
This season Hamilton sent two teams to the November bonspiel hosted by Boston University at Broomstones Curling Club in Wayland, Mass. They also competed at the RPI bonspiel in Schenectady, N.Y., in December.
Hamilton’s team will compete in a college invitational home bonspiel on Feb. 14 and 15 at the Utica Curling Club. According to Doherty, the team hopes qualify for nationals this year, which will be held in Blaine, Minn., on March 14-16.
