SVMS Cross Country had twenty-four personal records set Tuesday night in some pretty soggy conditions at Robert’s Park. The Vikings girls and boys both took second in the Tri-Valley jamboree. Alex Schram, Gannon Sova, Owen Hare, Blake Young, and Landen Whelton made up the top five boys. Aubrey Hare, Anicela Ortega, Mackenzie Powell, Jadyn Hartley, and Emily Killingbeck made up the top five girls. All of our athletes competed at a very high level. Great work kids!
