On Tuesday, despite losing the top two spots in the race to two runners from Herget, the boys’ cross-country team defeated both Aurora Jewel and Aurora Herget behind third through eighth finishes by Wyatt Gross, Dom Stolarik, Grant Fischer, Chase Sorrentino and Lorcan Duffy.  Leading the way for the 6th grade was Max Sliwa, while James Rider had his best run of the season.  The team will next compete in the Marmion Invite on Tuesday next week.


Also on Tuesday, the 7th grade girls’ volleyball A and B teams fought hard against Batavia. “A” was led in serving by Olivia Uhlmann, and “B” was led by Bridget Hecker. For passing the “A” team saw strong passes from Mekdes Geary, and “B’s” new libero, Chloe Koster, helped lead her team. Wish them good luck this weekend as they travel to Batavia Rotolo for their first tournament on Saturday.


Congrats to the 8th grade volleyball teams on their big wins against Batavia on Tuesday!! Congrats to the A team for an impressive combined total of 17 kills, 10 blocks and 14 aces! They did a great job of running our new offense and defense of a 5-1 to lead to a great victory!

The B team dominated the Bulldogs in two quick games and special shout out to Ivy Black for an impressive 18 point serving streak!


Yesterday, the 7th grade football team overcame a dismal first half by roaring back in the second half with a dominating defense and solid offensive play to beat STC Thompson by a score of 8-6. The defense shut out Thompson in the second half and recovered 3 fumbles. The offense had solid running and passing with a 40-yard pass reception by Samuel Thomas to set up a 2-yard run by Tony Chahino for the tying TD. Michael Rumoro ran in the 2-point conversion to seal the deal for the Vikings! 

Last night, your 8th grade Geneva Viking football team played host to the Thompson Thunder in the opening game of their conference schedule. The Vikings jumped out to an early lead when Jacob Jones hurled a 50-yard TD pass to Nate Stempowski. After special teams master Michael Torrence recovered an onside kick, the Vikings added to their lead when Nate Stempowski connected with Rocco DiLeonardi and carried a 14-0 advantage into half-time. In the second half, the Thunder roared back, scoring twice to draw within two points. After a late Viking drive stalled deep in Thunder territory, the Viking defense stood strong, denying Thompson a chance for the comeback win. Rocco DiLeonardi forced an errant throw by the Thunder quarterback that was intercepted by Jack Matthews and the Vikings held on for a 14-12 victory.

Next up--The Wredling Redhawks next Thursday.
