CHESTERTON | Valparaiso’s consistency carried it past Chesterton in a Duneland Athletic Conference gymnastics meet Tuesday night.

The Times and state No. 1 Vikings had three scores of at least 9.20 in every event to defeat the host Trojans 112.225-106.325.

“The Duneland Conference dominates, and to beat a Duneland Conference team is outstanding,” Valparaiso coach Lorie Cook said. “You can never underestimate anyone in our conference, and it was good to come to an away meet.

Valparaiso’s Morgan Algozine took all-around honors, finishing with a score of 38.35.

Algozine finished with the best score on the uneven bars (9.825), balance beam (9.575) and floor exercise (9.75).

Algozine also took fourth in the vault. She stumbled on her landing on both attempts, finishing with a score of 9.2.

The Vikings (7-0, 5-0 DAC) posted two of the top three scores in all four events.

Hannah Erwin took second on the bars (9.65) and vault (9.25), and she finished third on the beam (9.225) and floor (9.40).

Brandi Tuzinski led Chesterton (4-2, 2-2 DAC) with a win on the vault and second-place finish in the all-around.

Tuzinski totaled 37.575 to edge Erwin (37.525) for second. Tuzinski’s winning vault totaled 9.35.

The Trojans had Mary Choucalas return for her first meet of the season and had a couple of gymnasts limited because of injury.

“We still had some mistakes, but the girls are making the changes, and they are paying off now,” Chesterton coach Lauren West said. “They should be really happy with their performance.”
