Back To Front Page


Plenty of people were paying attention late into the evening on Tuesday.

Chesterton’s Peyton Martinson battled to the end and found the elusive third team point in the Trojans’ 3-2 Duneland Athletic Conference victory at Portage.

Martinson won the opening set 6-4 against Carly Jones before dropping the second set in a tiebreaker (12-10). A 6-3 victory in the final set gave Chesterton the win.

“It was so rewarding to watch Peyton clinch the match for us in a third set with the weight of the match on the line,” Chesterton coach Tom Bour said. “She’s such a hard-worker and seeing that work ethic payoff is just a tribute to her.”

Leah Rochford picked up the team’s first point with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Alexis Pennington at No. 3 singles.

In doubles, Libby Gibson and Christian Charlson had little trouble in getting a victory over Dezarae Olivo and Sophia Hernandez 6-3, 6-3 at No. 2.
