In baseball, Matt Nodley received the award while Kade Baker earned it for golf. Lauren Webster received the award for softball and Mitch Haviland earned the award for boys' track. Corey Laue received the award for girls' track and Kaci Kehrt earned the award for girls' tennis.

It was also noted at the banquet that Northview captured the Western Indiana Conference All-Sports Trophy for girls' athletics.

During the celebration, the NHS softball and girls' tennis squads were recognized for winning the WIC titles this season.

In addition, girls' track discus thrower Samantha Solomon and boys' golfer Kade Baker were recognized as Sectional Champions.
