There was no scoreboard. And nobody was announcing team scores.

But, you knew in the Chesterton-Valparaiso rivalry, both teams were scratching for every last point. And that resulted in a tie meet (63.5-63.5) with one event left.

The Trojan quartet of Stephanie Fisher, Anna Raffin, Jordyn Kincy and Katie Behrendt wouldn’t be denied and won the 4x400 Relay in 4:10.72 to pick up the five-point win over the Vikings.

Chesterton beat LaPorte 111-21.

“What a great finish,” Chesterton coach Steve Kearney said. “We had a lot of really good performances tonight in a lot of areas. This was a really good team win.”

The Trojans picked up big points in a couple of areas including a 1-3 finish in the 100 from Anna Raffin and Kristin Mabry and a 1-2 finish in the 200 from Katie Behrendt and Raffin.

Chesterton dominated the hurdles with Stephanie Fisher winning the 100 and 300 races. In the 300’s, the Trojans went 1-2-3 as Fisher was followed by Bridget Brendza and Riley Trella. Ashley Ballestero and Macenzie Schoenfelt went 3-4 in the 100’s.

“Our hurdles really did a nice job tonight,” Kearney said. “Those were points we thought we could get and the kids went out and did what they were supposed to.”

The Trojans also got 2-3 finishes in the 800 from Tori Schroeder and Kristen Homme, the high jump from Elaina Gerlach and Katie Haggerty and the discus from Shelby Gwizdalski and Liz Koch.

“All we ask from the field events is to go compete,” Kearney said. “They’re getting better and they got us some big points tonight.”

Behrendt also won the long jump (15-4) and the 4x100 team of Raffin, Ari Mahaffey, Catherine Pannekoek and Mabry won in 51.8.

The Trojans will travel to Portage next Tuesday for the Duneland Athletic Conference Meet beginning at 4:30 p.m.
