Back to Front Page





The Chesterton baseball team couldn’t get the offense going and dropped a 3-0 Duneland Athletic Conference decision at Valparaiso on Tuesday.

The Vikings utilized three first inning errors by the Trojans to put two quick runs on the board and turned things over to starting pitcher Devin Bafia.

Chesterton tried to rally with the use of two walks in the second, but couldn’t score. The only Trojan hit was a double by Austin VanderZanden in the fifth.

Valparaiso’s insurance run came in the sixth inning with back-to-back-to-back singles to set the final score.

Jake Post worked six innings in taking the loss for the Trojans after allowing just three hits and striking out five.
