There was a lot of change ups last night with kids running new events. Missing several seniors to the yearly senior trip, we had kids all mixed up. On the boys side both 4×100 and 4×400 had new kids running but that did not stop them from taking first in both races! Again field events helped the Viking boys to a victory with a first in high jump by Justin Peconga with a jump of 5’8″ and he followed up with a second in pole vault! Jon Humes took first in long jump with a jump of 17’3″ and Ethan Hartman grabbed second. Again Wade Melanson took first in shot put and third in discus. Sprinters again were led by Rex Kirkenstien with a win in the 100 and close second in the 200. Matthew Howes took the mile with a 5:00 flat!
On the girls side there where a lot of changes with missing several girls to the senior trip and injuries. Valeria Jimenez stepped up and pulled a victory in the 400m. Maria Henderson grabbed a first in the two mile! Field events were key to getting points for the Lady Vikings. Sidney Wagner excelled like normal in the long jump and blasted past her PR in pole vault taking second to an experienced Northfield jumper with a jump of 7’6″. Olivia Smith took first in High Jump! The girls finished the night with a victory in the 4×400!!
Vikings will travel to North Miami Relays on Friday!
