WOODINVILLE — Tradition in sports has become a popular mainstay, like the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, the Rose Bowl on New Years Day, and March Madness.

On the local scene, a Caleb Hamilton article runs in The Woodinville Weekly every summer.

It was six years ago that Caleb jumped into a pile of happy teammates as Woodinville celebrated its Kingco 4A Championship. Since that time, we’ve followed the progression of his career while playing at Oregon State and being drafted by the Minnesota Twins.

Falcons See Success in Gonzaga Camp Tourney
