CROWN POINT — What really matters is next week. That’s the company line.
But there were some smiles on the faces of Chesterton wrestlers after the Trojans unseated host Crown Point for a regional title Saturday.
“I guess this is a little bit of redemption for last year. It stunk losing a narrow one,” undefeated senior Lucas Davison said.
Crown Point won its 10th consecutive regional title in 2017 with a Justin Akers pin in the 220 final. Chesterton finished second, 9.5 points back.
“In the end, (a regional championship) isn’t our ultimate goal,” Davison said. “We’re competing for a state championship in a couple weeks, hopefully. So, I think that’s the bigger focus. This is just a small little reward for our labor.”
