HUNTINGTON, Ind. - In addition to winning the 4A Wayne Sectional on Saturday night, Huntington North head coach Craig Teagle finds himself celebrating a personal milestone: his 400th career win.

Teagle, wrapping up his 4th season at Huntington North, has been a varsity boys basketball coach for 27 years. Under his leadership, the Vikings are 74-28, and captured their first sectional title since 2001. Huntington North’s 22 wins this season is a school record and serves as a career best for Teagle. 

Prior to coming to Huntington North, Teagle spent 17 seasons at Jay County. He led the Patriots to 250 wins, 5 sectional titles, and a 3A state finals appearance in 2006.

He also coached at Caston from 1994 to 1997, winning 66 games; and one season at Knox, going 10-11 in 1998.

Teagle and his Vikes look to keep adding to those totals when they travel to Logansport for the 4A Regional on Saturday. No. 12 Huntington North faces No. 7 Zionsville in the noon semi-final. DeKalb Sectional champ Northrop and top-ranked Carmel meet in the other semi-final at 10 a.m. The regional title game is at 8 p.m.

Huntington North is one of 25 local high schools that partners with Parkview Sports Medicine for athletic training, nutrition, athletic rehabilitation and orthopedic services for Viking student-athletes. Learn more at
