The Northview Knights put the cap on a stellar wrestling season by handing out their season awards.

The Western Indiana Conference champions advanced seven competitors out of sectional action this year and three grapplers made the trip to semistate action with Corey Grigsby qualifying for the IHSAA State Finals.

Grigsby was awarded the Career Achievement Award after a record-breaking career that saw him win three WIC championships, two sectional titles and advance to the state finals this season.

He broke 2004 graduate, Austin Staley's career victory mark when he finished the year with 128 wins. He also holds the career mark in takedowns with 228 and team points with 594.5. This year he set the single-season mark with 94 takedowns and last year recorded 223 team points and had a 92.3 winning percentage with a 39-9 mark.

Tony Sanabria advanced to semistate this year and was the Most Valuable Wrestler. He won 38 matches this year and was the WIC champion. He placed third in the sectional and the regional this season.

Jeremiah Allen's season was derailed prematurely due to a knee injury that kept him from the postseason. However, he won the Mental Attitude Award after winning the WIC title at 215 pounds and posting a 22-2 mark this season.

Greg Stultz finished the year with a 27-10 mark and advanced to the regional level. For those accomplishments he is the Most Improved Wrestler for the Knights. He also was fourth at the sectional and was second at the WIC Tournament.

Austin Nicosin recorded the most nearfalls for the Knights this season and won 31 matches this season. He was the conference champion and at the sectional level he was second before placing fourth at the regional.

Brent Withers was a co-captain for the Knights along with Grigsby and he advanced to the regional before finishing the year with a 26-12 mark. He placed third at the sectional and was third at the WIC meet.

Head coach Dan Mikesell was named the conference coach of the year for the Knights who scored third place points as a team in the sectional.
