Most popular sport at Hampden Meadows School


Barrington is a very popular town for sports. It has many sports including basketball, baseball, lacrosse and many others.

At HMS, we went around to a few classrooms to ask what sport they liked the best.

According to the results, soccer pulled ahead with 41 votes. Surprisingly, cheerleading came in second place with 17 votes. In third place was lacrosse with 13 votes.

Basketball was in fourth place with 10 votes. Baseball was right behind basketball with nine votes in fifth place. In sixth place, with five votes, was for football.

Last but not least was hockey with three votes. This proves that many students at HMS like soccer.
