The Knights came into the Sectional Championships with a big goal in mind. That goal was to win the third Boys Sectional Title in School history, but more importantly win back to back titles for the first time ever. Unlike last year, the Knights were the favorites albeit most were considering it a coin toss between a Northview and Terre Haute North as to who would bring home the hardware. Conditions were warm and muggy, yet the Knights persevered and were able to take the team title by 18 points of the host team. The Knights were able to place their 5 scoring runners in the top 12.
Northview was lead by Sophomore Thomas Chapman who finished 3rd overall in a time of 17:29. Junior Braden Norris finished 4th with a time of 17:39. Freshman Stuart Bennett was 7th with a time of 18:09. Senior Evan Hendrich had his best sectional finish ever finishing in 10th with a time of 18:29. Sophomore Corbin Butts rounded out the scoring runners by finishing in 12th with a time of 18:34. Sophomores Braeden Knerr and Carter Mullenix rounded out the varsity squad by finishing in 25th and 33rd respectively with time of 19:16 and 19:43.
Next up is Regionals at Bedford North Lawrence with the focus on a second consecutive Semi-State berth.
