CEDAR LAKE | Hanover Central is trying to send a message to the Greater South Shore Conference in its first season as a member.

It came through loud and clear when the Wildcats roughed up Wheeler 25-12, 25-14, 25-10 Tuesday night to remain undefeated in the GSSC.

"It's a big conference game. All of our conference games this year are, because we're trying to let people know who Hanover Central is," Wildcats coach Erin Zeller said. "I think every night, we have to come out and play as best as we can."

Hanover Central (10-2, 4-0) never relinquished the lead at any point during the three games. The Wildcats made runs of 9-2 in the first game, 10-2 in the second and 11-3 in the third.

"We came off a tough loss (to Kankakee Valley) last Thursday, and that one just set bad with us," Zeller said. "We've had a couple of really good practices, and tonight the goal was just to fight for every point."

The Bearcats (11-5, 1-2) are young and showed inexperience, coach Alisha Polite said.

“I've got freshman and sophomores, and I don't got kids that play club,” Polite said. "We struggled tonight, and their experience is just what put them through."

Freshman setter Samantha Guglielmo performed well for Hanover, notching 15 assists and 10 aces. Hanover also dominated at the net, as five players finished with at least five kills.

"We came out on fire and just kept pushing, which I was really glad to see, because we really haven't done that yet this year," Zeller said. "I hope it propels us into the second half of our season."
