Consistency is a key.

Chesterton senior Brandi Tuzinski used four consistent performances to capture the Duneland Athletic Conference All-Around title on Saturday at Crown Point.

“Brandi had an awesome day,” Chesterton coach Lauren West said. “And we know she can be better which is a great thing. She had some nerves, but she always performs when she needs too.”

Tuzinski totaled 37.425 to take top honors and edge Portage’s Danielle Solis (37.375) without winning an individual event.

Tuzinski finished second on bars (9.30), third on vault (9.25) and floor (9.525) and fourth on beam (9.35).

“That shows the strength of the gymnasts in the area,” West said.

The Trojans started on beam and floor leading to a fifth place overall finish (106.20).

“We hit the first two events really well, beam and floor,” West said. “Jordan (Kearby) had some really strong performances. Her floor was the best I’ve seen all year and she hit her beam routine.”

Valparaiso captured the team title (110.775).

“Yesterday was a really good rehearsal for Sectional next week,” West said. “We had a few people that got to get some experience that they’ll need for next week.”
