A fourth straight Sectional title and 14 individuals advancing to next Saturday is just accomplishing the game plan for the Chesterton wrestling team.

“We knew what we were capable of,” Chesterton coach Chris Joll said. “We were pretty confident we could get everybody through to the finals. Everybody, for the most part, did what they were supposed to do.”

The Trojans only lost four matches the entire day as they picked up 10 individual crowns.

“Only five guys had to wrestle three times,” Joll said. “In the matches that we knew were close, we found a way to come on top.”

Individual champs for the Trojans included Brandon Bolin (106), Ethan Kaiser (120), Nick Winland (132), Brock Wllis (145), Ryne Beckman (152), Diego Lemley (160), Evan Bates (170), Cade Girgenti (182), Lucas Davison (195) and Eli Pokorney (285).

“I think Nick (Winland) turned a big corner for us,” Joll said. “He had some really good training in the room over the last week and then beat a kid because he didn’t make any mistakes. He beat a kid that had beaten him before.

“Evan Bates beat the conference champ again. He took him down and just manhandled him.”

The Trojans return to the mat on Saturday when they travel to Crown Point for the IHSAA Regional. Wrestling starts at 9 a.m.
