The Chesterton wrestling team picked up four dual wins and six individual titles as they opened the season in the two-day Ted DeRousse Invitational in Antioch, IL, Friday and Saturday.

“We went there to get ourselves ready for the next level,” Chesterton coach Chris Joll said. “The guys that are expected to do well, did just that. The guys who aren’t full-time wrestling guys, got back into it and are getting going. It’s nice to have 7-8 kids to get things going and drag the rest of the guys along.

“As the weekend went on, those guys started becoming the guys we think they are going to be.”

The Trojans picked up victories over Antioch (49-23), Park Forest (65-6), Crystal Lake South (65-12) and West Aurora (42-12).

“Our conditioning is good and the guys that have put the time in during the off-season are right where they need to be at this point,” Joll said. “We’ve got a few things to clean up and the young kids got some experience and got thrown into the deep water without having to worry about drowning.”

On Saturday, the Trojans went into the 16-team individual tournament at each weight class and came home with six champions including Danny Tolin (106), Jack Tolin (132), Cade Girgenti (170), Lucas Davison (182), Andrew Davison (195) and Eli Pokorney (220).

“Danny Tolin suffered a loss to the kid from Deerfield (Friday) and then Coach (Keith) Davison and Coach (Mark) Myers made a couple of adjustments to him and he beat the kid with a 5-point throw in the championship on Saturday,” Joll said.

Jack Tolin, Girgenti, Pokorney and the Davison brothers each finished the weekend undefeated.

“Jack Tolin was just a machine all weekend. He beat a national place winner in Fargo this summer by just beating him into the ground and pinning him. He’s even getting better,” Joll said. “Andrew persevered through a match where he had to restrain his emotions and he did it. That’s a good lesson for him. Lucas had a close match to get through as well.”

For Girgenti and Pokorney it was their first time this season wrestling several weight classes heavier than they did last year.

“Eli was wrestling several weight classes higher than he did last year and performed unbelievably well,” Joll said. “It was nice to see Cade come out of his shell and realize he’s better than he thinks he is. He was concerned about the weight and he realized it fits into what he does pretty well.”

The No. 8 Trojans return to the mat on Thursday when they host No. 1 Portage at CHS. The meet is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.
