Viking track team races through season

By: Tabitha Hudnall

            It is nearing the end of the Viking track season, and the runners have done a great job.  In their first meet of the season at Point Pleasant on March 17, the boys placed second and the girls placed fourth.
            During the Lindsey Mann Memorial at Roane County the Vikings were on fire with the girls placing second and the boys placing first.  The boys won first in discus, shot put, long jump, high jump, 4x110 meter shuttle hurdle, 4x800 meter relay, 4x400 meter relay, 300 meter hurdles, and 800 meter run. The girls won events in 100 meter dash, 200 meter dash, 400 meter dash, 800 meter dash, and 4x200 meter relay.
            The Viking Classic that took place April 27 was also a success with boys placing second overall and girls placing fifth. 
            Throughout the season, both teams have excelled their abilities and are sure to end this year with a bang. Congratulations to the teams for working so hard this season.
