The Chesterton gymnastics team put an emphatic end to a Duneland Athletic Conference title campaign with a 113.875 score in Saturday’s DAC Meet at Valparaiso High School.

“I’m proud of the girls,” Chesterton coach Dawn Matthys said. “Even when we made a little bobble or mistake, we picked our chin up and went to the next event like the great, amazingly talented girls they are.”

Mia Pak continued to dominate the competition with victories in the Vault (9.75), Bars (9.875), Floor (9.675) and All-Around (38.375).

“Mia’s won every All-Around all year,” Matthys said. “She’s had an incredible season and we look for her to continue to get even better.”

Sophie Hunzelman won the Beam (9.70) and finished second in the All-Around (37.75) for the Trojans.

“Sophie finishes our Beam rotation so well,” Matthys said. “She’s always calm and graceful.”

Chesterton also utilized its depth with standout performances from Caitlyn Cook on Vault (9.60), Abby Winland on Bars (9.375) and Belle Marchetti on Beam (9.45).

“Belle’s never competed in a post-season meet and she’s a senior,” Matthys said. “She’s come so far and to lead us off with that score on the Beam is incredible.”

The Trojans return to competition on Saturday when they host the IHSAA Sectional beginning at 12 p.m.

“For us, this was kind of a cap to our regular season and a warm-up for the Sectional next week,” Matthys said. “We’ve got some little things we need to iron out yet. We want to peak at the right time.”
