The Chesterton wrestling team got off to a solid start with a 4-0 day on Saturday at the CHS Super Duals.

The Trojans picked up victories over Lawrence North (33-28), McCutcheon (60-15), Delphi (56-18) and Elkhart Memorial (49-18).

“We had a lot of kids that had good days and learned something about what it takes to be at the level they want to be at,” Chesterton coach Chris Joll said. “I still think we’ll be better at the end of the year than we are now. When we go back into the room, we can talk about what we need to work on.

“I think our conditioning was better than the other team’s that were there.”

The Trojans featured four wrestlers who finished the day 4-0. Jack Tolin (113), Alex Katsafaros (170), Jaycee Jensen (182) and Connor Smith (220) all were perfect.

“Alex got a little bit of a wake-up call and had to wrestle in every single match,” Joll said. “Connor realized that he’s pretty good. Jaycee was on a good roll.”

Tolin scored 29 points offensively and had a victory by fall.

“Jack plans ahead and listens to coaching really well,” Joll said. “Against Elkhart Memorial, he had to run the kid into the ground and he did just that. He does three or four things really well and uses them.”

Mike Double (138) and Sawyer Hallas (160) both finished 3-0 on the day.

“It was a learning experience for everybody,” Joll said. “They are still learning things every day and I think it’s something they can carry over the rest of the year. Sawyer’s potential is limitless with his athleic ability.”

ValShawn Stewart also went 2-0 at 132 pounds.

“I was wondering what was different about the day and our frosh were 5-0, our sophomores were 17-3 and our seniors were really good too,” Joll said. “When you get that type of success from the younger guys, you’re going to have a good day as a team. They came through and that’s not what always happens.”
