Back To Front Page


The Chesterton wrestling team won 11-of-14 matches Wednesday night in a 58-12 Duneland Athletic Conference rout of Valparaiso.

“It was nice to have our 14 varsity guys on the mat together for the first time,” Chesterton coach Chris Joll said. “We were clearly more experienced than Valpo and knew we had that advantage coming in.”

Cade Girgenti (170), Lucas Davison (182) and Andrew Davison (195) started the night off with three victories by fall. Eli Pokorney (220) and Noah Kadish (285) added to the run with forfeit victories.

Danny Tolin completed the six match run of wins with a fall victory at 106.

Chris Merrill sandwiched an 11-7 win at 120 pounds between two Valpo wins before Jack Tolin’s fall victory at 132 pounds started another Trojan run.

Stephen Biancardi won by fall at 138 and Troy Johnson beat Revin Jordan 11-1 at 145 pounds. Diego Lemley’s 3-2 win over Michael Lichtenberger set the final score.

“We had some nice performances from our younger kids that let us win some weights that could have swung either way,” Joll said.

The Trojans return to the mat on Saturday when they host the DAC Meet beginning at 9 a.m.

“It’s good to have a meet like this heading into the DAC Meet,” Joll said.
