The Chesterton girls basketball team dialed in from long distance Tuesday night and cruised to a 68-21 non-conference victory at Hobart.

Weve taken care of business when weve been the better team most of the time this year, Chesterton assistant coach Fred Mitchell said. We did what we were supposed to do. Its a good win in that way.

The Trojans built a 16-5 lead after one quarter with two triples and led 28-10 at the half after adding another. On the night, Chesterton was 12-of-28 from 3-point range.

We stayed within the offense and got some really good shots, Mitchell said. If you are a good shooter, you have to have a short memory. You have to always assume the next one is going in. Tonight, it did.

Things really opened up in the third quarter as the Trojans outscored Hobart 31-5 as they hit 7-of-8 shots from 3-point range and 9-of-12 shots overall.

Nalani Malackowski was 4-for-4 from distance, while Evelyn Pabon (2-for-2) and Ashley Craycraft (1-for-1) also hit triples.

Craycraft led the Trojans with 19 points and Malackowski added 15. Marney Sisson tallied 11 points to go along with a game-high 11 rebounds.

Rounding out the scoring for Chesterton were Pabon (6 points), Hollie Skoczek (6 points), Haley Moore (5 points), Emma Schmidt (2 points), Molly Slatcoff (2 points), Carley Balas (2 points) and Tori Gerhardt (1 point).

Defensively, the Trojans held Hobart to just 7-of-32 (21 percent) shooting from the floor.

Chesterton returns to the court on Friday night when they travel to LaPorte. The varsity game is scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. tipoff.
