Getting Ready For the Season Early



The Hanover Central High School girls’ soccer team has been conditioning since the winter of 2016 and is still going strong. These conditioning practices involve upcoming Seniors to incoming Freshmen. Most of these girls are involved in different activities such like other sports for school and clubs, jobs and working around their community. The soccer team is getting prepared to have a good season. The Senior captains, Christina Shipe, Molley Lanham and Lexi Gutierrez, and the Junior captain, Ellen Conner have been working hard to get the team prepared for a tough season. Jim Patterson, the Coach, has been working really hard with the girls too. He has also been looking for a new assistant coach to work with the girls and bring a new eye on the team. Let’s hope this pays off during the season!

Sectionals Has Begun

  After the annual Crown Point track and field sectionals, Hanover Central will be represented at the regional track meet in Valparaiso by senior DJ Moran in the 300 hurdles and junior Kevin Pazsko in the 1600 meter run. These two qualified last year and were unable to move on to the state competition. DJ has his eyes set on competing at Indiana University as he is seeded fourth in the Valpo regional, yet two the runners seeded ahead of him he has beat in previous meets. Good luck to these two runners as they pursue the state meet in two weeks.

Senior Picnic

The senior picnic will take place on friday may 26th at Hanover Central high school. Hanover Central seniors will be using this opportunity as a last time to get together and spend quality time with their classmates. Classmates will celebrate the day by playing games like cornhole, football, and various other games. Pizza, hamburgers, and hotdogs will be provided and Michael Medrano will most likely be bringing tacos for the senior class to enjoy. It will be a day filled with lots of fun and countless memories.

The end is near

The end of the baseball season is near for the Hanover Central Wildcats. They only have 4 more games guaranteed to them. That will include the team’s first round sectionals game against the Kankakee Valley Cougars. The other games are as followed two against Lake Station and then a game against Andrean before the sectional round begins. With one win against Lake Station the Wildcats will clinch another confrence championship.

Over The Hurdles

At Crown Point High School’s track and field sectionals, DJ Moran continued to assert his dominance in the 300 meter hurdles. With his first place seed time, he finished as the runner up after stuttering over a few hurdles. He told me that if he get his form down and doesn’t stutter over hurdles, he has a shot to finish top three at the regional meet and move on to the state event. Good luck to DJ in his event as he looks to qualify for the state meet and Indiana University.

What is Your Favorite Fast Food Restaurant?

What is your favorite fast food place? I surveyed five people from each grade, at school. These are the results from my survey: ten for Wendy’s, four for Taco Bell, three for Mcdonald’s, two for Dairy Queen, and one for Burger King. Does that surprise you? Personally, my favorite fast food place is Wendy’s? What is your favorite fast food restaurant?


Heroism is bravery and selflessness that can be showed by anyone. I believe the media focuses on celebrities more than everyday ordinary people but they also deserve credit where credit is deserved. One of my heros are Anthony Rizzo from the Chicago Cubs, who has battled cancer and now has overcame it and now plays baseball in the MLB. Anthony makes every effort to help other children who battles cancer, even if it’s just a visit from him he makes those kids days and he is a hero to those children.

Technology in the Classroom

Do you think phones should be allowed during class? Is it a distraction? I think phones are very useful. Just because a couple kids abuse their power. I also think, instead we should get computers because it keeps kids organized, gives them responsibility and just benefit everyone all around? What do you think about phones in the class? What do you think about technology in school, in general.
