The Knights competed in the Zionsville Invite on Saturday where the team split into freshman/sophomore and junior/senior squads and raced only 4 kilometers instead of the normal 5 kilometers.
The freshman/sophomore squad finished 2nd while the junior/senior squad did not score as a team. Once all results were combined, the Knights finished 7th overall as a team, with only 9 points separating the Knights from 4th place North Central (Indy). Many of the competing schools were ranked in the top 50 in Indiana, including three of the top 5 teams in the state.
The freshman/sophomore squad finished 2nd in their race and were led by Evie Noel with a 10th place finish in 15:58 followed closely by Maisie Eldridge who finished in 13th place with a 16:03. Halle Miller (18th – 16:09), Katie Morrison (20th – 16:14), and Briley Shillings (26th – 16:38) made up the top 5 scoring runners. Delaney Trout (104th – 19:02), Hannah Slater (201st – 23:04), and Addie Goodwin (227th – 32:01) also competed in the race.
Northview’s underclassmen only lost to Carmel’s, but finished ahead of the underclassmen from several teams ranked in the top 50 statewide, including top-ranked Zionsville.
The upperclassmen in the junior/senior race were led by Lindy Berry (69th – 19:00), Yahaira Martinez (78th – 19:26), Abby Bailey (137th – 23:02), and Brianna Langdon (140th – 23:24) all competed well against strong competition.
