Both sophomores, Stoffel won the 1,600 and 3,200-meter runs in 5:31.9 and 12.07.1, respectively, while Christian topped the 100 and 300-meter hurdles in :17.1 and :53.7, respectively.
The Lady Vikings swept both hurdling events. Freshman Josie Graft claimed second in the 100 in :17.1 while senior Alexa Shoemaker took third in :18.6. In the 300, Shoemaker crossed the line in :54.7 for silver and sophomore Alexis Aldred clocked in at :57.8 for bronze.
Seniors Paige Coolman and Maddie Klender racked up points for Coach Kris Teusch's squad in discus and shot put. Coolman triumphed in discus with a throw of 115-3 and notched third in shot put with a heave of 33-10.75. Klender swapped places with her teammate in both events, winning shot put with a lob of 39-2.25 and placing third in discus with a toss of 79-9.
Shoemaker earned first place honors in pole vault with a leap of 7-0 and also joined with Christian, Graft and senior Jamie Feller to win the 400-meter relay in :54.5 to round out Huntington North's wins.

In long jump, senior Lindsey Foster was a silver finisher with a bound of 16-11.50 while sophomore Emily Bucher grabbed bronze with a 14-3.50.
Bucher earned additional third place points in the 100-meter dash with a clocking of :13.8.
Freshman Jenna Henline completed the 400-meter run in 1:08.1 for second place and sophomore Marissa Jamison was the runner-up in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:37.4, just ahead of junior Taryn Doering's third place effort of 2:40.8.
