The Northeast 8 Conference (NE8) released their boys basketball All-Conference teams on Monday, as four members of the Huntington North boys basketball team earned spots on the lists.

Senior guard Zach Daugherty, senior forwards Hank Pulver and Sawyer Stoltz and senior guard Trey Williams all claimed All-Conference honors with their play this season, with Daugherty and Pulver being named to the NE8 All-Conference First Team and Stoltz and Williams grabbing spots on the All-Conference Second Team.

The Vikings placed the second-most players on the top two All-Conference teams, as East Noble edged Huntington North with five players on the top two teams.

Daugherty finished second on Huntington North with 336 points this season. Daugherty led the Vikings with 55 three-pointers, and his 53.9 percent three-point field goal percentage set a new Huntington North individual season record for three-point field goal percentage with a minimum of 50 attempts. Daugherty also led the Vikings with 37 steals, finished second in free throws with 55 and finished third in field goals made (113), field goal attempts (209), offensive rebounds (27), defensive rebounds (67), rebounds (94), assists (61), blocks (three) and minutes played (719).

Daugherty is committed to continuing his academic career at Purdue, where he will play baseball for the Boilermakers.

Pulver led Huntington North with 117 defensive rebounds and 81 assists and tied for the team lead with 734 minutes played. Pulver finished second in field goals made (118), field goal attempts (210), free throws made (55), free throw attempts (71), offensive rebounds (31), rebounds (148), blocks (15) and steals (36).

Pulver is committed to continuing his academic career at Huntington, where he will play basketball for the Foresters.

Stoltz turned it on down the homestretch for the Vikings and finished with team-best totals of 356 points, 13.2 points per game, 144 field goals made, 239 field goal attempts, a 60.3 field goal percentage (among players with 50 or more field goal attempts), 67 free throws, 113 free throw attempts, 49 offensive rebounds, 156 rebounds and 25 blocks while tying Pulver for the team lead with 734 minutes played. Stoltz was one of just two Vikings to start in each of Huntington North’s 27 games this season.

Stoltz will continue his academic and basketball careers for the Jaguars of IUPUI.

Williams posted 171 points this season, good for fourth on the Vikings. Williams added totals of 58 field goals made, 119 field goal attempts, 47 three-point field goals made, 99 three-point field goal attempts, 58 rebounds, 55 assists, nine steals and one block in 641 minutes of action for Huntington North.

Williams plans to attend Indiana to continue his academic career, but is not planning to play any sports for the Hoosiers.

Huntington North’s season came to a close on March 9, losing 52–41 to Zionsville in the Regional semifinal. Stoltz led the Vikings with 12 points, while Daugherty, Pulver and Williams added nine, six and six points, respectively.

The Vikings finished their campaign with a 22–5 record, which set a new program record for wins in a season.
