The IrvingtonÊVikings track team and its coaching staff are preparing for a successful season. Distance Coach David ThompsonÊsays his team has added a lot of Òfresh talentÓ to their arsenal of athletes, now with 170 students. They plan to give perennial Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) powerhouses Newark Memorial Cougars and James Logan Colts a Òrun for their money.Ó
An early indicator of this new era was evident as the Vikings and American High School Eagles met for their first match of the year. Viking runners dominated in menÕs races, both varsity and freshman/sophomore divisions; the Lady Eagles showed they were poised for power as they bested the Lady Vikings.
It will be an interesting and competitive season throughout the MVAL this year!Ê
