Bertoli, Morris named Tribune-Star's Fall Sports Athletes of the Year
In some ways, the 2013 Tribune-Star Fall Sports Athletes of the Year are similar to the 2012 winners — identical in one case.
But even though Terre Haute South distance runner Jackson Bertoli is a repeat winner of the fall award, his path to it was a lot harder, and perhaps even more rewarding as a result.
And as Shelbi Morris of Northview inherits the honor from former volleyball teammate Brylie Riddell, she too had a different path that was rewarding, as the Knights became regional champions for the first time since 1984.

North gets past Knights in boys basketball
With a huge size advantage on the program roster, you wouldn’t need to be Dr. James Naismith to figure out Northview’s strategy Tuesday night against a much shorter Terre Haute North team in boys high school basketball.
Pound the ball inside.
That plan worked well early on, as the visiting Knights bolted out of the gates to an early advantage.
The Patriots hung tough, though, and thanks to some clutch play off the bench from Braxton Poore and Andrew Farmer in the second quarter, delivered a knockout punch from which Northview could never recover.
North used a balanced scoring attack and an almost flawless floor game to record an easier-than-expected 68-43 victory.
Vikings prevail over South Vermillion
