We would like to sincerely thank our coaches and the parents of our athletes for their dedication and commitment to our Fall and Winter Knights Athletics program! Without you, our teams would not exist!
On April 26th, Chesterton hosted it’s Sports Banquet, where the following awards were given to our student athletes. Special thank you to our coaches, Anna Updike, Lindsey Martin, Chris Uhrich, Paul Updike and Steve Bohan for their assistance in organizing the event.

- Congratulations to our Men’s Basketball team for taking home the 2nd place trophy! Their grit and doggedness shined especially during the semi-final game. Our Knights suffered several devastating first string injuries throughout the season and all of our players rose up to claw our way to victory in our semi-finals. Our Knights showed great determination and perseverance but ultimately fell to Gilead in the Championship game. Great job boys!
- Congratulations to our Women’s Basketball team for a great first season as the Chesterton Knights! Our girls played all season with great drive, dedication and teamwork. Our women’s team finished third in the semi-final game after a hard loss to Cornerstone. Great job girls!
- Congratulations to our Flag Football team for taking home the league Championship on October 23rd! This was our Team’s 6th Championship out of 7 years! Our MVP for the season was Will Harmon, who led our offense as quaterback. He was a duel threat as a passer and runner. His leadership was invaluable this season. The Knights’ determination, commitment to regular practices and execution of their offensive and defensive strategies were key to their success. Great job boys!
- Our Girls Volleyball Team fought with great heart and perseverance against Christian Central Academy in their Quarter-Final Playoff game, but ultimately fell to their opponent. Congratulations to our seniors, Anna Reese, Clare Grande and Mary Udike. We are looking forward to seeing our 2022 lady Knights in action next Fall. Great season Knights!
- Congratulations on our Soccer team’s 2-0 victory on Saturday, November 6th, and finishing the season undefeated, and winning the NFCAA championship! “This has been the most enthusiastic and cohesive group I’ve coached so far. Thanks to everyone (players and families) for being a part of the team this season; I hope you all had a great time.” Coach Uhrich
