Northview's Shawn Piatt registered a Western Indiana Conference mark on Thursday by clearing 12-6 for the Knights.

- Knights set two WIC records

The Northview Knights brought home five titles and a pair of conference records but it wasn't enough to dethrone a deep and talented Edgewood Mustang squad from the team title.

The Mustangs tallied 152 points with Northview second with 130 and West Vigo in third place with 103 points. Sullivan, Brown County, Owen Valley and South Vermillion rounded out the scoring.

Shawn Piatt and Logan Whitman each lowered existing Western Indiana Conference meet records on Thursday evening as Piatt cleared 12-6 in the pole vault to break the record set by Kyle Peterson of Edgewood two years ago (12-3). In the 110 hurdles, Whitman cruised to victory in a time of 15.14 to lower Northview graduate, Kyle Thompson's 2002 time of 15.57.

Also picking up a WIC record was the 400 relay team of West Vigo who recorded a time of 44.45 to edge the Knights who ran a 44.62. The record was formally held by Northview in 2002 with a 44.9.

Matt McClellan picked up a 200 meter title for the Knights, just edging out West Vigo's Lenny LeClerc who was the 100 meter winner and long jump champion. Devon Chamberlain was third for the Knights in the 200 meters with McClellan also taking third in the 100 meter event.

Justin Scherb took home the 1,600 meter championship for the Knights with a strong run of 4:35.

In the field events, Nick Gebert placed fourth in the shotput with Ricky Raley winning the event with a toss of 47-7. In the discus, Paul Mizell of Edgewood was the winner with a throw of 152-0 1/2 ahead of Northview's Neil Vanatti who placed fourth with a throw of 131-7.

Edgewood's David Probst defended his 2003 win and WIC record in the 300 intermediate hurdles by recording a 41.2 ahead of third place's Chris Bowman of the Knights who ran a 42.47. Bowman also took fourth in the 110 hurdles.

Northview will compete next week in the boys sectional held at Terre Haute North.
