Boy’s Tennis Sending 4 to State

After sending nine of their top ten varsity players to Sectionals from the Sub-Sectional tournament, the Hudson Raiders advanced four of those nine to the WIAA State Tournament in Madison.  While Hudson had no Sectional Champions this season, their team finish of four 2nd Place finishes, 1 3rd Place and 1 4th Place finish garnered them the Sectional Runner-Up plaque again this year, the same finish as last year behind Eau Claire Memorial. Players going to the State Tournament on Thursday are: Tyler Grosz, Jacob Grosz, Kade Nickerson and Doubles Team Jack Geurkink and senior Captain Luke Johnson. Good luck at State!

A Lesson in Hope and Resilience

Students are gathered on the floor with drums.

Hudson High School students had an opportunity to meet Okello Sam, a Ugandan musician who founded “Hope North.” “Hope North” is a school in Uganda that provides sanctuary for victims of civil war. The school serves orphans, refugees, and former child soldiers. Okello shared his story of hope and resilience with our high school students.

Okello and student drum together.
