No. 1 CHS Gymnasts win Duneland Conference title

Back To Front Page

 

Jordan Bush must have a short memory.

Less than 72 hours after taking a big fall on the beam at Portage, the senior won two events, including beam, and the All-Around title as the top-ranked Chesterton gymnastics team won the Duneland Athletic Conference title on Saturday.

The big highlight for me was our leader, Jordan Bush, Chesterton coach Dawn Matthys said. She pushed through after a horrible fall Wednesday on beam. Not only did she stick her routine, she won the event.

Bush took the beam title with 9.725 and won the floor with a 9.65. Bush tallied 38.475 to take the All-Around title.

Mia Pak was the other event winner for the Trojans with a 9.75 on the bars. Sophie Hunzelman finished runner-up on beam (9.675), bars (9.70) and floor (9.55).

Im very proud of my team, Matthys said. I think they stepped up today.

Other top performances came from Alyssa Donovan on beam (9.05), Bush on vault (9.70), Baylie Lawson on vault (9.55) and floor (9.40), Mia Pak on vault (9.525), Whitney Siewen on vault (9.425), Bush on bars (9.40) and Lexi Avey on bars (9.15).

We still have a few things to work out in practice this week before we head into the Sectional next week, Matthys said.

Chesterton returns to competition on Saturday when they host the IHSAA Sectional beginning at 12 p.m.
