After an extra long pre-season, the Chesterton gymnastics team opened its season by posting a 110.80 team score in a Duneland Athletic Conference victory over LaPorte (94.675) on Wednesday night.

“I’m happy to get the season started,” Chesterton coach Dawn Matthys said. “To hit 110 (points) in our first meet is outstanding. I feel good about what we saw tonight. I’m really proud of the entire team.”

Freshman Sophie Hunzelman made an immediate impact in her debut, winning the All-Around title (37.575), while getting individual titles in Bars (9.675), Beam (9.125) and Vault (9.35).

“Sophie shined on every event. She’s strong and powerful,” Matthys said. “Whitney Siewin is a freshman that threw the most beautiful vault she’s ever done. The freshmen showed what they were made of and got to learn a few lessons.”

Jordan Bush was the other Trojan to win an event with a 9.60 on Floor and was second in the All-Around (36.625). Chesterton finished 1-2 in every event.

“Hailee Ellenwood and Caity Bogue both added a new series on beam and landed them beautifully,” Matthys said. “Our captains, Kirsten Wozniak and Baylie Lawson, are leading the team with their own mental toughness. They work hard and are very encouraging. The young kids are just following their lead.”

The Trojans return to competition on Tuesday when they travel to Hobart for a meet beginning at 6 p.m.
