Senior Week- Sadee Hamilton
Sadee Hamilton is a 5’9” senior post player for the Streaks. She has been a big contributor on the varsity the last three years.
Sadee has the unique ability to play inside and be physical or step outside and become a ball handler and three point threat. She is our leading rebounder this year, and is number 2 in assists on our team. Although she plays a post position, she is like having a second point guard on the floor.
I have also had the pleasure of having Sadee in the classroom. She is an excellent student who works hard to reach her goals as a student. She is dedicated academically and willing to do the extra in the classroom.
Under Sadee’s soft-spoken demeanor rests a competitive fire. When the games are the toughest, Sadee is ready to step up. Numerous times she has made the big shot, gotten the big rebound, and made the important steal. Her competitiveness has made Sadee an extremely valuable player.
