FARMERSBURG -- The Northview Knights came up with a pair of second-place finishes to Terre Haute South in a Tuesday meet at Farmersburg.

The North-view boys scored 53 points to finish behind the Braves' 20 and ahead of the host Thunderbirds' 63.

Taylor Head of the Braves was the overall winner in 16:45 to best Northview senior Conor Strain's 17:37. Tanner Brown was also a top-10 finisher, placing 10th in a time of 19:23 for the Knights.

"I don't think this was our best meet, but was not our worse meet of the year," boys' coach Chad Smith said. "Our pack of runners need to learn how to get up and run in the front and put themselves in a position to compete with other teams' packs."

Ryan South finished 11th in 19:24 with Kyle Yocom in 16th in 20:21 and Patrick Durcholz in 22nd in 21:59. Christian Swan rounded out the Knights in 26th with a time of 24:05.

In the girls' meet, Terre Haute South was the winner with 28 points to better the Knights' 44 and North Central's 61.

Jen Samson of Terre Haute South was the overall winner in 21:30 with Northview sophomore Alyssa Conrad in second in 21:58. Shelby Sands took sixth-place in 22:58 and Nicole Nelson was ninth in 23:27.
