If the Northview baseball team is looking for another sectional championship, the road got a bit easier on Thursday when the sectional draws were made by the IHSAA.
The Knights (17-3) drew the bye game in the tournament and are scheduled to face Mooresville, a team that they were slated to play on May 10, but Mother Nature won that battle.
Meanwhile, the Clay City Eels will have to win three games to gather a sectional title at Shakamak.
Clay City (5-9) will face Union (Dugger) in the first round with Bloomfield and North Central scheduled for the other first round game.
Defending champion and host, Shakamak (14-6), got the short road and will face White River Valley in the bye game with the winner advancing to the championship game in the tourneys which begin on May 29.
The Knights, who advanced to the semistate last season, hope to do the same this year.
First round games at the Terre Haute South Sectional will be the host Braves (12-12) facing Plainfield and the Martinsville Artesians (9-4) squaring off with Terre Haute North.
Northview got all the runs they would need on a two-run homerun by John Reberger to opposite field in the first inning on Wednesday night.
Sean Brackney did the rest for the Knights, shutting down Edgewood on a three-hitter as Northview clinched at least a share of the Western Indiana Conference championship, 2-1.
Jesse Johnson had a double for the Knights who had just six hits themselves, but Reberger's was the biggest of the game as Northview improved to 17-3 on the season and 11-1 in the WIC.
West Vigo, who needs to sweep the Mustangs in a Friday doubleheader, is currently 9-1 in the WIC after completing a sweep of Sullivan on Wednesday.
The Knights will take on Linton tonight at home.
