*      The Vikings traveled to Lamoni to play in their first playoff game since 2011. The team  played well, battling back from a 28-8 deficit to take the lead 32-28. Lamoni retook the lead late in the 2nd quarter and led 34-32 at halftime. The second half was well fought, but the team was hampered by injuries and turnovers that enabled a speedy Lamoni to a 56-38 victory. The team will heal, train, and compete in other sports as they prepare in the next 8 months for a strong season in 2015

ATHLETICS
Regional Volleyball
As you head off to support the Viqueens, please keep these rules in mind from the IGHSAU. No one shall be admitted who is wearing a mask (hidden identity). No use of artificial noisemakers, signs, or banners as there will be a penalty which is a warning/ejection.
Viqueen Volleyball
The Viqueens continued down the regional trail as they traveled to Bedford on Tuesday, October 28th to take on the Bedford Lady Dawgs. The Viqueens dropped the first set 21-25 and then went on to power through the next three sets (25-23, 25-17, 25-16) for the victory. The Viqueens will travel to Griswold tonight for the regional semi-final match against Griswold. Game time is 7:00 PM. Admission is $6.00 for all. Please come out and support the Queens–we love to see so many supporters in the crowd! Be loud and proud!
Viking Football
The Vikings dropped their final game of the regular season 42-40 in yet another heartbreaking loss. The regular season ended in a 3-way tie for 4th place in our district with Stanton having defeated both of the other 2 teams head to head. The Vikings are in the playoffs! The team was excited to travel to Lamoni for a rematch of their Week 2 game.
Football Playoffs
The Vikings traveled to Lamoni to play in their first playoff game since 2011. The team played well, battling back from a 28-8 deficit to take the lead 32-28. Lamoni retook the lead late in the 2nd quarter and led 34-32 at halftime. The second half was well fought, but the team was hampered by injuries and turnovers that enabled a speedy Lamoni to a 56-38 victory. The team will heal, train, and compete in other sports as they prepare in the next 8 months for a strong season in 2015.
The Viking players and coaches would all like to say “Thank you!” to all those who have supported the team. We truly feel blessed to have strong parent and community support. The positive support and encouragement has been great and very much appreciated! The team would also like to say “Thank you” to our great volunteers that help with recording the stats, recording video, preparing the field, operating the chains, announcing the games and operating the scoreboard.
The Viking players also appreciate and have a high respect for the special people who make time to volunteer coach. Coaches Eddie Engstrand, Alex Cabbage and Austin Bechtold have been a tremendous asset in our team’s success! Please take time to thank them for their efforts they put in and the sacrifices they made to better our team. Thank You!
