Woody Hamilton burst onto the scene as the starting goalie for the Trinity men’s lacrosse team during his junior season. The Williamstown, Massachusetts native was named a captain as a senior and helped lead the Bantams both on and off the field.

Coming off a career year in 2017 in which he finished with 195 saves and a .564 save percentage, both of which ranked third-best in the NESCAC, Hamilton, posted another great season to finish his career in a Bantam uniform. In 2018, he finished with 155 saves and a .498 save percentage. He also posted double-digit saves in 11 of the team's 14 games, highlighted by a season-high of 15 versus Tufts. Hamilton leaves Trinity ranked among the all-time program leaders in saves (350), saves per game (12.06) and goals against average (11.13).

Hamilton also took advantage of being a student-athlete at a liberal arts college off the field. He earned NESCAC All-Academic honors three times as an economics major for three times and turned his experience at Trinity into a full-time job in the banking world. Upon graduating, Hamilton took a job in New York City at Piper Jaffray as an investment banking analyst in its health care group, where he interned during the summer before his senior year.
