Trojan Wrestlers beat Merrillville

Back To Front Page


The Chesterton wrestling team won seven matches by fall and cruised to a 60-12 Duneland Athletic Conference victory at Merrillville on Wednesday.

“This group continues to rise to the occasion,” Chesterton coach Chris Joll said. “The lopsided score looks like we defeated an inferior opponent, but that was not the case tonight. They have four or five standouts on their team and we met them head to head and just beat them.

“It was a good win.”

After Merrillville got on the board first with a win at 126, Aidan Torres beat Malik Hall (7-4) at 132 and Ethan Contreras won 8-1 over Aleksandar Pejovski at 138 for a 7-6 lead.

Chesterton would win the next six matches by fall to put the outcome out of reach.

Ethan Kaiser (145), Brock Ellis (152), Brandon Bolin (160), Cade Johnson (170), Gavin Layman (182) and Gage DeMarco (195) pushed the team score to 40-6.

“Gage (DeMarco) pinned a guy with no losses and Hayden (DeMarco) pinned a good 113 pounder after leading by 11 points,” Joll said. “Aidan Torres beat a state medalist and Ethan Contreras knocked off a kid who has been in their lineup for four years.”

The team’s traded forfeit wins with Evan Bates getting the win for the Trojans at 220. Hayden DeMarco won the final match on the mat with a pin of David Maldonado (2:39) at 113 pounds. Sergio Lemley’s forfeit win at 120 set the final score.
