Last night, the Geneva Middle School Viking varsity football team opened its 2021 season, hosting the Redhawks of Wredling Middle School on the turf at Geneva High School. The Vikings came out strong from the start as Ben Peterson threw two touchdowns to Nelson Wendell and Harrison Tincher added a third. This is all Geneva would need. The Viking defense held the Redhawks to just two first downs and zero points, led by strong performances by Cameron Ziegler, Wyatt Curry, Jack Price and Aidan Bryant as Geneva locked down its first conference victory. Next up for Viking football: the junior varsity team squares off against Aurora Washington at home on Monday. 


Despite the grueling conditions and the heat index being a shade under a 100 burger, the Geneva Cross-Country Team lit the course on fire for their first meet yesterday.  Mira Meyers led the way for the girls with an impressive fourth place finish with Elena Maminga and Gretchen Drexler close behind.  Alexis Guess was the top 6th grade runner and 4th runner for the Vikings.  On the boys side, Griffin Poterek ran a gutsy race for the boys with a 4th place finish of his own.  Andrew Lee and Ben Barton were right behind, both running stellar races.
