  • HUHS Raises $6,025 in ONE MIRACLE MINUTE!

    On Thursday, December 22, HUHS held a "Miracle Minute" to collect as much money as possible in one minute to donate to an HUHS Family that lost their home in a house fire last week. In one minute, our school came together to raise $6025!! This is such a gracious act and one that will be very much appreciated by this family during this difficult time. A huge thank you goes out to Special Education Teacher Abby Bumgarner, her aide Nancy O'Rourke, and their students who coordinated all of the efforts in the "Miracle Minute" as well as collecting items for this family before the holidays. 

  • Congratulations Cristian Tyrpak, Player of the Year!

    Do more. Be smarter.

    Those were the words, in essence, Hartford Union’s coaches told senior forward Cristian Tyrpak as the 2016 season — his senior year — began.

    Tyrpak netted 30 goals in three varsity seasons previously, so scoring more was not an issue. He netted 21 as a senior, to close with 51.

    His goal total stands third in school history behind James Weber (173) and Colin O’Brien (64), while his 61 points ranks seventh on the school’s list.

    However, the staff asked for a mindset change.

    Tyrpak admittedly always wanted to score, always wanted the ball at his feet. Since the game first beckoned him to the pitch, the four-year varsity player wanted to be the one fans cheered after a goal was scored.

    Longtime Orioles coach Jack De Selm attempted to rein in Tyrpak, in a sense. It was easy at first — he wasn’t the offensive focal point as a freshman and sophomore, and scored just 10 goals between 2014-15.

    He then added four assists to a junior-year 20 goals. Yet theywanted more.

    “My coach put me into a couple different roles (in 2016) where he knew teams would be man-marking me, double-teaming me,” Tyrpak said. “So he would have me pull them away.”

    Stop trying to go 1-on-2, or even 1-on-3. Be a dummy, draw the defense out. Be a playmaker, but in a different sense.

    “One of his objectives was to win as many games as possible, including conference,” De Selm said. “We knew that if we played him in certain positions, it would open up the necessary spacing for others to fill the gap and have the ball fed to them.”

  • Congratulations Ryan Zuern, Player of the Year!

    Having played three years on the varsity football team at Hartford Union, Ryan Zuern rewrote a little of the history books.

    Zuern recalls what it was like as an underclassmen playing on varsity.

    “I remember that sophomore year, I had some of the best teammates,” Zuern said. “They took me in and mentored me pretty good. They made me feel comfortable, which allowed me to do what I did.”

    What he did was rush for 4,529 yards for the Orioles — an average of 151 per game — and amassed 46 touchdowns.

    “The first weekend they called me up (to varsity), I was second string and I was like, ’I’m fine with this,’” Zuern said. “Then I was first string and the pressure was building. I took it day-by-day, and every game I focused on getting better and making less mistakes.”

    When his number was called, he was ready.

    “You have to rely on your training,” Zuern said. “You workout all summer and you have to rely onthat whatever you put in is what you’ll get out. I realized that I’d be getting the ball more and I knew I had to do something with it. I had the feeling of not wanting to let anybody down.”

  • Congratulations to Abby Hamilton, Player of the Year!

    Hartford Union junior Abby Hamilton has one goal for her final high school season.  Inside the high school gymnasium, each varsity sport has its own banner hanging from the ceiling. Each banner lists conference championships won by the respective team. The volleyball banner is empty. "It's always been our goal to win a conference championship," Hartford coach Michelle Schueller said. "Our motto has been, 'Fill the banner.' "That's a lonely banner. It'll be interesting in the North Shore. They'll be some new teams and a new outlook." If it were to happen, it would be one of the first conference titles for Hartford as a member of the North Shore Conference - a move that is made at the end of this academic year. "Our team goal is to win conference," Hamilton said. "There is nothing on our banner." Hamilton will be a senior next season, her third as a leader of the Orioles. Her teammates voted her captain when she was a sophomore. "I was shocked that the team trusted me enough and my abilities and skills to be a leader as a sophomore," Hamilton said. "Being a leader with others and the seniors was an honor." Schueller added, "She leads not only by example, but she's always encouraging and positive on the court. The girls respect that."
