Back To Front Page


The No. 9 Chesterton Trojans continued its winning ways with a 43-20 Duneland Athletic Conference victory over Merrillville on Wednesday.

Danny Tolin (113) and Ethan Kaiser (120) got things rolling for the Trojan with victories by fall for a quick 12-0 lead.

Back-to-back wins for the Pirates cut the team lead to 12-7, but a win by Troy Johnson at 138 and a fall victory for Brock Ellis at 145 over Malik Hoover stopped the run.

Merrillville got two more decisions before a streak of five straight Chesterton victories put the match out of reach.

Evan Bates won by fall at 170, ahead of Diego Lemley bumping to 182 and beating 7th ranked Tyjonn Lockett 5-4. Kevin Mochen won in overtime at 195.

Lucas Davison bumped up to 220 pounds and beat 2nd ranked Brandon Streck, 8-1, and Eli Pokorney won by fall at 285 to finish the night.

The Trojans return to the mat on Saturday when they travel to the Munster Super Duals. Wrestling is set to begin at 9 a.m.
