CROWN POINT | How focused is Crown Point senior Dustin Schurg?

Teammate Dax Jones pretended to be a media member gathered around Schurg, complete with a notepad, after he had won the 152-pound title at Saturday’s Crown Point Sectional.

Schurg didn’t even crack a smile. In fact, he looked as perturbed as a pro athlete dealing with the cameras and microphones.

“There’s a time to have fun and a time to be serious,” said Schurg, one of eight champions for the Bulldogs, who ran away with the team title 297½ to 207 over runner-up Lowell. “I’m totally focused right now. I know this is my last time around, my last hurrah.

“I even tried a few new things today that we were working on in practice.”

Schurg wouldn’t reveal his secrets, but you get the picture: he’s a man on a mission.

Schurg, one of five boys in the family, has three other brothers in the program, all one year apart.

Dustin pinned Kankakee Valley’s Beau Tauber in 1:04 in the 152 title bout, while Darden, a sophomore, pulled off a 5-3 decision over Valparaiso’s Mack Neal in the 138 championship.

The Bulldogs’ other champs included Riley Akers (106), Josh Fuqua (126), Trevor Burlison (132), Jacob Hazi (170), sophomore Morgan Kral, who improved to 30-0 with the 195-pound title, and Steven Potoskey (220).

“We had 13 guys come in first or second and another get third, so you can’t ask for much more than that,” CP coach Scott Vlink said. “We lost a couple of matches in the end, but we don’t have anything to be disappointed in.”

One loss for the Bulldogs was in 182-pound championship, where Hanover Central’s Tyler Scott scored a takedown with two seconds left to beat CP’s Matt Langbehn 4-3.

Lowell’s Kenny Hughes remained unbeaten at 160 pounds, moving to 34-0 with two pins and a technical fall. His brother, Drew, won the title at 120 with three pins.

“The last two years I was sectional runner-up so it’s nice to finally win one,” Kenny Hughes said.

Elsewhere, Hanover’s Stevan Micic improved to 37-0 at 113, while teammate Joshua Bartoszek took the title at 285. Lowell’s Mitch Roadruck won the title at 145.
