EAST HANOVER, NJ- Head Coach Doug Wear knew he had an experienced team returning. The squad boasted four returning seniors including Ava Gammo, Alexa Bursese, Emily Seymour and Alexa Petrrozzino. Wear’s faith in this group did not go unrewarded with the girls posting and incredible return of 25-3 with an undefeated conference record of 12-0.
The team relied on a pressing defense that limited other teams to less than 32 points a game. Gammo led the team averaging 11.3 points a game and finished her career with 944 points to her name. The show never belonged to a single person though, as chemistry between all the seniors made this team click as they have been playing together since middle school.
This was not only a huge year for the athletes, but for the coach as well. Included in this season’s win total was Coach Wear's 300th win at Hanover Park. While the core four of last season’s run will be leaving, the future looks bright for the Lady Hornets.
