The fall sports season went well for the Northview athletic program as the school holds the overall Western Indiana Conference point standings through the fall season. The girls' golf and soccer teams placed second in the WIC with the cross country teams adding third-place finishes and the boys' soccer team was fifth.

The Knights were paced by unbeaten conference marks and championships from the football team (6-0), the volleyball team (6-0) and the boys' tennis team, which was also 6-0 and claimed a sectional championship this year.

Both the boys and girls' cross country teams reached the regional along with the girls' golf team.

Senior tennis player Dillon Reynolds earned Honorable Mention Academic All-State by the Indiana High School Tennis Coaches Association.

Overall, 27 Northview athletes reached all-WIC status during the fall.

Northview's Krista Stearley (No. 8) controls a pass against Terre Haute North this season. Stearley won the Intensity Award for girls' soccer this year.
The Noble Knight Awards were presented to one athlete in each sport throughout the year. The award signifies the athlete's contribution to Northview athletics in terms of service, dedication, commitment and leadership.

In cross country the awards went to Allie Dupin and Nic Yocom while Sierra Girton was named the recipient in girls' golf. Alexus Bex was the volleyball award winner with Damon Hyatt receiving the award in football. Mannah Mace and Dylan Dyar were the soccer winners and Skyler Holifield won in boys' tennis.

Clay City High School also performed well in the fall sports season as the volleyball team claimed sectional and regional championships on the way to a berth in the semi-state.

Senior Alyssa Conrad was the Northview girls' cross country most valuable runner this fall.
The volleyball team was led by All-Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference members Brielle Drelick and Callie Dayhuff. Honorable Mention honors went to Asie Jeffers and Hallie Brewer.
