You never know how a team will react to an injury.

The Chesterton gymnastics team opened its dual meet season with a 103.80-86.250 victory over Hobart that was a lot tougher than the score would indicate.

“Opening night was a bit rough,” Chesterton coach Lauren West said. “We were a little rusty coming off of break and with the injury, it took a lot to get the girls heads back focused into the meet.”

The Trojans lost Jordan Kearby to an apparent neck injury during their first rotation on the vault as the Kearby’s hands appeared to slip during her second attempt.

“It was nice to have two assistants that can pull the girls together and get them refocused,” West said. “They kept them informed on what was going on, but also reminded them that they had a job to do for the team as well.”

Brandi Tuzinski led the Trojans with a individual victories in the Bars (8.90) and the Floor (9.50). She also finished second in the All-Around (36.00).

“I thought we really had a strong beam and floor set tonight,” West said. “Those are usually our strongest events, so it was nice to see them perform there.”

The Trojans also got solid All-Around performances from Isabelle Wheeler, Alisha Dziarski and Rachel Noel.

“For our freshman, it was their first time competing at the high school level,” West said. “It’s the first time they competed all-around and its just different in high school. They have a good sense of what to expect now heading into a conference meet on Thursday.”

Morgan Township’s Kylie Maxwell won the All-Around title (37.45).
