Northview's Justin Scherb has run in the IHSAA Cross Country State

Championship meet each of the last three fall seasons. It might be distance running, but Scherb has never reached the IHSAA Track and Field Championship Meet in the spring.

Scherb can change that if he continues improve on his performance from Saturday in the Big Four Track and Field Championships at Northview High School.

Scherb won the 1600-meter run with a season-best time of 4 minutes and 38 seconds. "(The state meet) is a goal, but I'm not going to give up," Scherb said.

Scherb and Logan Whitman paced Northview's boys team to a third place finish in the four-team meet. Terre Haute North won the meet 97.5-84

over Terre Haute South, followed by Northview with 37.5 points and West Vigo 25.

In the girls' meet, Nikki Royer, Ashley Davis and Brit Hofmann led Northview to third place. Terre Haute North won the meet 103-84 over Terre Haute South. Northview outscored West Vigo 50-7 for third place.

Scherb and Whitman are both on the comeback trail for Northview's boys team, but for different reasons.

Scherb said he is just starting to get into competition shape, after an inflamed tendon in his left foot slowed him to start the season. "This is my first highly competitive race," the Northview senior said.

The pace wasn't nearly as fast as Scherb expected. Looking at a field that included Terre Haute South's Eric Doerr and Kenny Kauffman and Terre Haute North's Rob Roads and Josh Bedford, the 1600 appeared to be a preview of intense competition over the next two weeks.

"I expected (the 1600) to be one of the best races out here and it turned into a slow pace," Scherb said, noting 800-split times of 2:20 and 2:18.

The 80-degree heat and humidity might have caused the field to run a slower pace. He beat North's Roads by four seconds.

"I thought we were going out hard. Nobody did, so I had to go," Scherb said.

Whitman, on the other hand, is back on track after playing golf last spring. The Northview senior won the 110-meter high hurdles in a season-best time of 14.59 seconds.

"I felt good coming out and just started picking up (speed) about the fifth set (of hurdles)," Whitman said.

Whitman's previous best time was 14.63 seconds. "I'm doing a little better than I thought I would (after a year off). It's fun to be back out here (running the hurdles)," the Northview senior said.

The Knights also got a second from Matt McClellan in the 200-meter dash. McClellan and Alanzo Coleman ran identical times of 22.87 seconds, but the Terre Haute North sprinter was declared the winner at the finish line.

In the girls' meet, Nikki Royer scored second and third place points for the Knights and Ashley Davis scored second and fourth-place points.

Northview's Shandra Kirby and Royer finished second and third, respectively, in the 800-meter run. Royer came back to take second in the pole vault, clearing nine feet. North's Kylie Hutson won the pole vault because she had fewer misses.

Davis put the shot 32 feet, 81/2 inches for second place and threw the discus 91 feet, 4 inches for fourth place.

Brit Hofmann took second place for Northview in the long jump, splitting up North's MIC one-two duo of Hutson and Elaine Ateke. Hofmann leaped a season-best 16 feet, 7 inches, four behind Hutson.

Hofmann had her eye on the Northview record of 16-feet-91/2, set by Beth Harrison in 1995. "I jumped 16-7 vs. South Putnam, so I wanted to break the (school) record today. That's just 2/12 inches," the senior said.

Hofmann also finished third in the 100-meter dash, fourth in the 200 and ran on Northview's third-place 4x100 relay team with Lindsey Stearley, Andrea Thomas and Jenica Yocom.
