The Chesterton gymnastics team took their show on the road for the first time and came away with a 108.35-89.70 victory at Hobart on Tuesday night.

“It’s rough going on the road for the first time this year,” Chesterton coach Dawn Matthys said. “We have some kinks to work out. We hold ourselves to a high standard and that’s a good thing.

“We’re always reaching for more.”

Sophie Hunzelman led the way for the Trojans with victories in the Vault (9.30), Bars (9.50) and Beam (9.10). She also won the All-Around (36.65).

“Sophie went All-Around tonight and I’m so proud of her,” Matthys said. “She was fantastic.”

Hunzelman got help from senior Hailee Ellenwood and junior Whitney Siewin.

“Hailee had a great day with great floor and bars. She’s having a really good year. Her work ethic is great and I like watching her perform,” Matthys said. “Whitney had one of her best vaults tonight. It was a new one and it was fantastic.”

The Trojans have also begun to put freshmen Danielle Kontos and Kenzie Sharp into the rotation.

“We’re getting our freshmen involved,” Matthys said. “Danielle did multiple varsity events, stepping into some really big shoes. I’m happy with the way she’s performing and handling varsity pressure.

“Kenzie Sharp is really doing a good job for us also.”

Chesterton returns to action next Tuesday when they travel to Crown Point for a 6 p.m. start.
