GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY

The Huntington North girls cross country team was in action on Saturday, competing at the Marion Cross Country Invitational held at Indiana Wesleyan University.

The Lady Vikes were represented in two different races at the invitational, as Addy Wiley had the opportunity to compete in the elite race, while the rest of the team competed in the normal race.

Wiley took full advantage of her opportunity, setting a new Huntington North record and personal best with a time of 18:15.4, good for fourth place overall out of 205 runners who finished the race.

In the normal race, the Vikings placed sixth out of 10 teams with a total team score of 142.

Hanna Whitney led the way for the squad by finishing in eighth place with a time of 20:13.6, a new season best time.

The Lady Vikes place two more runners in the top 30 of the race, as both Anna Guerre (17th place, 21:20.1) and Meg McDonald (29th place, 22:14.7) clocked in with personal best times.

Lesley Zook and Naomi Richison completed Huntington North’s scorers, as Zook placed 52nd overall with a time of 23:24.1, while Richison crossed the line in 60th place with a time of 23:57.0.

Kendyl Coles also ran for the Vikings, but her 71st place finish time of 25:08.9 did not factor into Huntington North’s score.

The Lady Vikes will return to the track on Sept. 21, traveling to compete against New Prairie for an 8:30 a.m. start.

BOYS SOCCER

The Huntington North boys soccer team returned to the pitch on Saturday for a road match at Wawasee. The Vikings came away with a convincing 4–0 victory in the non-conference duel to improve their season record to 5–3–1.

Alex Gass scored the first goal of the contest, which would hold up as the game winning goal. Gass’s tally was the only of the first half, as the Vikings carried a 1–0 lead into halftime before exploding offensively in the second frame.

Peyton Miller continued his torrid scoring pace with two more goals in the victory to increase his season total to 10. One of Miller’s strikes in the win came via a penalty kick.

Tyler Christle picked up the only assist of the game for the Vikes.

Huntington North fired 16 shots in the win, with Miller leading the way with seven. Gass followed closely behind with five shots.

Dominic Cardwell turned aside the lone shot he faced from Wawasee to record his fourth shutout of the season.

The Vikes will be in action on Tuesday, hosting Bellmont in a Northeast 8 Conference showdown. Game time is set for 5 p.m.

BOYS TENNIS

The Huntington North boys tennis team competed at the West Noble Invite on Saturday. Complete results from the day’s matches were not made available, but overall placements were released.

The Vikings finished in third place overall at the invite, headlined by Thomas Schweller and Noah Zahn, who claimed the crown in first doubles action.

Carson Kitchen finished as runner up in first singles, while Isaac Eckert and Matthew Weill completed Huntington North’s podium finishes by earning third place at second doubles.

Rounding out the Vikes’ lineup were two fifth place finishes for Jacob Daugherty and Chase Mickely in second and third singles, respectively.

Huntington North will return to the court on Tuesday for a Northeast 8 Conference match at East Noble. The contest is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.
