Congratulations to all of the boys who took part in Cross Country this year for your effort throughout the season.

Congratulations to the girls’ cross country team for a tough battle at conference last night. Katie Ketzel-Gaudette, Hannah Shreve, Alex Powers and Elizabeth Shulte had some great times and Grace Pryor was the first varsity girl finisher for the Vikings. Way to go girls! 

Your 7th Grade Geneva Vikings had their last regular season game yesterday against St. Pats. St. Pats came out ready to go and moved the ball in the 1st half. However, the Vikings defense came up big with some key turnovers. Rocco Delinardi tipped a St. Pats pass that was picked off by Joey Cosentino. Nate Stempowski was ball hawking on defense all game and came up with 3 turnovers himself. Stempowski didn’t stop there; he connected with Jacob Black on a 15-yard pass to put up the first points of the game. Rocco Delinardi ran in a 2-point conversion that added to the Vikings lead. Nate also connected with Collin Sprague on 2 long passing touchdowns. I hope everyone started Nate Stempowski on their fantasy football team this week because he also caught a 2-point conversion that was thrown by Rocco Delinardi to seal the game. The 7th Grade Geneva Vikings finished the game on top with a score of 22-0 and a regular season record of 5-0. The Vikings look to continue the undefeated season with the conference championship game on Thursday the 11th of October at home. Mark your calendars and come out to support your 7th Grade Geneva Vikings on the 11th. Wear your blue and let’s pack the stands to support these young men and their journey for a perfect season. Be The Hammer!!
