The Northview wrestling team opened the home portion of its season in style Wednesday evening with a 57-24 victory over Owen Valley after celebrating the inaugural Alumni Night for the program.
There were plenty of former competitors from both Northview and Brazil High School’s including members of the 1985 and 2008 sectional championship teams.
Northview coach Dan Mikesell was pleased with the turn out for the school’s first time celebrating the program’s history.
“I was pretty pleased with the turn out on the first night. Maybe we can continue to get more alumni back and make it even more special,” Mikesell said. “They are in talking to the team and reliving some memories and having fun.”
There was plenty to be happy about following a match that had the Knights winning five matches via fall to pull away from the visiting Patriots.
