The Northview track and field teams came through with some big individual efforts in Thursday's dual track meet against West Vigo, which led to a pair of victories over the Vikings. The Northview boys got multiple individual victories from Patrick Durcholz and Nic Yocom in claiming a 79 to 53 victory. The girls gained individual wins in six different events and 10 second-place finishes to top the Vikings in a tight, 67-64 meet.

While Durcholz claimed the high jump (6-2), 110-meter hurdles (16.71) and pole vault (12-0) to go with a runner-up spot in the 300 hurdles, Jesse Miller provided one of the evening's biggest efforts in winning the shotput.

Miller topped his previous best in the event by more than five feet as his throw of 46-10 was enough to gain a victory over teammate Ethan Stewart's heave of 43-4. Andrew Davis was the discus winner for the Knights with a throw of 121-0 as Stewart placed third with a throw of 100-9 .

The field events provided plenty of Northview's points in the meet as Durcholz led the charge, but Levi Brown claimed the long jump (19-4 ) to boost the Knights' team totals.

Yocom helped pace the effort on the track for Northview as he won the 1,600 in 4:32.20 over West Vigo's Andrew Kump by six seconds. Yocom also returned to edge teammate Damon Hyatt with a season-best time in the 800 in 2:03.15. Hyatt also bested his season mark in the event with a time of 2:03.90.

Garrett McKenzie won the 100-meters (11.29) and Ian Heffner raced to a victory in the 300 hurdles (42.62) in his season-best time and took second in the 200 ahead of Miller. Durcholz was the 110-meter hurdle winner. In the 400 meters, Cam Huey was second ahead of Trent Barnett. The Knights also won the 1,600 meter relay to wrap up the meet and the victory.

In the girls' half of the meet, the Knights needed every point they could get as Brooke Deighton won the high jump (4-10) and Leeanna Knight won the long jump (16-7 ) with her best effort of the year. Teammate Natasha Barrett was runner-up in the event and was third behind Knight's runner-up spot in the 100 meters. Morgan Holt won the pole vault ahead of Deighton by clearing 7-6.

Alexus Bex paced the throwers for the Knights with a victory in the discus (95-6) and was second in the shot (30-9 ).

On the track, Andrea Schultz claimed the 400 meters and was second ahead of Deighton in the 200 meters. Schultz was also third in the long jump. Emily Conrad led Northview in distance events with a win in the 1,600 (6:04.56) and a runner-up in the 800 ahead of teammate Mannah Mace. Allie Dupin and Josie Stakeman were second and third in the 3,200 meters. The Knights also got runner-up finishes from Gracie Geswein in the 100 hurdles (17.35) and 300 hurdles (29.20).
