7th/8th Girls’ basketball tryouts and 6th-8th dance team tryouts begin immediately following winter break. To participate in tryouts, you must have a valid physical on file in the main office and be registered online. Get involved and Go Vikings! 


Your Viking wrestlers hosted Jefferson last week at Geneva High School. Led by tiny titans Evan Dziadus, Devin Disilvestro, and Sal Sheridan, the Vikings put on an absolute exhibition. Landon DeAngelis made his opponent fold so fast, it was like he had a bad poker hand. Quinn “Win By Pin” Hogan was up to his usual tricks, planting his opponent like an angry gardener in a matter of seconds. The Vikings visit Jewel tomorrow, hoping to keep their luster alive.
