Trojan Wrestlers down LaPorte

Back To Front Page


The Chesterton wrestling team wrapped up the Duneland Atheltic Conference portion of its schedule with a 49-29 victory at LaPorte on Wednesday night.

“We usually do not mean to enter a DAC dual with three forfeits and two other varsity kids out of the line-up, but that was the reality of today,” Chesterton coach Chris Joll said. “We asked a couple of less seasoned kids to step up and asked a few other guys to wrestle at higher weight classes.

“I just asked that they stay tough on top and make it a priority to get falls.”

The Trojans did just that as Shae Jackson (195), Gage DeMarco (220) and Evan Bates (285) picked up fall victories to start the night and put Chesterton out to an 18-0 lead.

After the Slicers got on the board with a forfeit win, Doug Waters posted a pin win at 113 over Brecken Joseph.

Two more wins by forfeit for LaPorte were answered by Ethan Contreras (132) and Ethan Kaiser (138) sticking their opponents in the first period.

Cade Johnson (152), Brock Ellis (160) and Gavin Layman (182) finished out the scoring for the Trojans.

“Each kid who wrestled up picked up a win for us including Brock, Gavin, Shae, Gage and Evan,” Joll said.

Chesterton is off until Saturday, Feb. 1 when they travel to LaPorte for the IHSAA Sectional beginning at 9 a.m.
