The Trojans still finished the season with a bang.

The Chesterton girls tennis team fell to Michigan City 3-2 Thursday afternoon causing a three-way tie for first in the DAC between the Trojans, Wolves and Valparaiso.

“We just got outplayed by a hungry and deep Michigan City team,” Chesterton head coach Gretchen Shinn said. “They were hungry to share the DAC title. They wanted it and played hard.

“We just got out played. That’s all there is to it.”

No. 1 and 2 singles, Bobbi Modesto and Margaret Shinn, once again dominated the courts winning both sets.

“They (Modesto, Shinn) played well again like they do every week,” Shinn said. “We just need someone to step up for a third point.”

Both doubles had trouble keeping up with the Wolves as the No. 1 doubles tandem of Sunny Lee and Rachel McCrum lost to Michigan City rivals Ashleigh Ellenwood and Lauren Palmer 6-1, 6-0.

At No. 2, Brittny Stephan and Amanda Susnak also lost to opponents Ally Langowski and Laura Holloway with scores of 6-1, 6-3.

The final decision came down to the No. 3 singles match with Michigan City’s Allante Wright and Chesterton’s J.J Lee. Wright overcame Lee in the first set 6-1 and again won 6-3 in the second set.

“We tied M.C and Valpo tonight for the win instead of us winning outright,” added Shinn. “We had the chance to do that tonight, but unfortunately we just got beat by a very determined team.”
