Lake Central’s tough schedule paid off in the first round of the Crown Point sectional.

Coming into the postseason with a 6-8 record, the Indians defeated Hanover Central 4-1 in the first round, and will advance to the semifinals on Thursday.

“We play four or five state-ranked teams,” coach Bryan Szalonek said. “Our record is not really reflective of how competitive we have been this season.”

Hanover won at No. 1 singles, but Lake Central took the other four spots, three of them in straight sets.

Lowell also advanced to Thursday by sweeping Rensselear 5-0.

Lake Central will face Crown Point, and the Red Devils will match up against Kankakee Valley.

In the Hobart sectional, Andrean swept host Hobart 5-0 to advance to the semifinals.

“Andrean is a really good team, and they played really well today,” Brickie coach Carl Davis said. “We were a little out-manned today.”

The 59ers have six seniors on varsity, and their experience came into play against Hobart. They won in straight sets across the board, with only two sets going to tiebreaker.

At LaPorte, Michigan City and Marquette almost followed the same pattern to meet for today’s championship. Both teams swept singles play, getting pushed to three sets at No. 1 and winning the other two matches in straight sets.

Lenka Zavodska rallied for a 4-6, 6-0, 6-0 win for the Wolves (12-4) at No. 1, while Kendall Shinn endured a 6-1, 4-6, 6-1 victory for the Blazers. Kayla Wurster and Madison Shreves picked up the lone point for the Slicers (7-9) with a win at No. 1 doubles.

At East Chicago, Whiting and Clark both advanced with 5-0 sweeps over E.C. Central and West Side, respectively.
