The Geneva cross country team concluded their season in a very tough conference meet. Brady Ahern, 5th place and Mitchell Gratz, 13th place, earned medals in the boys Varsity race with the Vikings avenging an earlier defeat to Wredling and almost doing enough to defeat St. Charles Thompson who had beaten us rather soundly earlier this season. In the Junior Varsity race, strong runs by Colin Hasty, Quinlan Bobeczko, Andrew Mueller and 6th grader Warren Cooper helped the Vikings to place third behind Batavia and Yorkville.
Last night, the 7th grade Viking football team traveled to Aurora Simmons for the final game of the regular season. The Viking running game was unstoppable. Geneva marched down the field in 8 plays and then capped it with a 35 yard touchdown run by quarterback Mason Luker. Offensive lineman Aidan Krahn lined up in the backfield and rumbled into the end zone to add the two point conversion, and the Vikings took an early 8-0 lead.
After the defense held Simmons on four straight plays to force a turnover, the Vikings struck again when Mick Lawrence scored a 60 yard touchdown as the half drew to a close.
In the second half, Simmons drove deep into Viking territory, but Geneva's defense held and forced a turnover on downs, and the Vikings never looked back, cruising to a 14-0 victory.
A reminder to all 7th grade football team members, there is no practice today. Gear return and picture signing will be Thursday immediately after school until 4:30.
