Nobody did it better than the Chesterton Boys did.

The Chesterton Trojans won the boys side of the Duneland Athletic Conference All-Sports Award for the 2017-2018 season, thanks in part to three conference championships.

“I’ve said it 100 times, and I’ll continue to say it, I’ll put our coaching staffs up against anybody in the State,” Chesterton Athletic Director Garry Nallenweg said. “Nobody outworks us. We have dedicated coaches and that filters down to our student-athletes.

“We’re very pleased to be on top of the DAC. It’s a great conference with a lot of great schools.”

The Trojans won DAC titles in Tennis, Swimming and Golf to finish with 27 points and edge runner-up Crown Point (29.5). Valparaiso (33), Lake Central (44.5), Portage (45.5), LaPorte (58.5), Merrillville (59) and Michigan City (63) rounded out the field.

Chesterton finished in the top half of the DAC in 9 of 10 sports, including runner-up finishes in Wrestling and Baseball and third place finishes in Cross Country, Soccer and Basketball.

“We’re competitive across the board in all sports and excel in some,” Nallenweg said. “The Duneland Community gets a lot of bang for their buck with our athletic programs. And we want to continue to do that year in and year out.”

On the girls side, the Trojans finished fourth overall with 34 points.

Valparaiso won the All-Sports Award with 30 points, followed by Crown Point (31.5), Lake Central (31.5), the Trojans, LaPorte (41), Portage (55), Michigan City (65.5) and Merrillville (70.5).

Chesterton won conference titles in Soccer, Swimming and Gymnastics with a runner-up finish in Cross Country. Third place teams included Basketball, Softball and Track.

“The girls had a great year as well,” Nallenweg said. “Year in and year out, we’ll continue to put the best product we can out on the athletic fields. We’re competitive not only in the DAC, but around the State.”
