Men’s track shows foes

Kyle Hewitt’s dad

The men’s track and field team garnered a second place finish at the 10-team Wisconsin Private College Championship meet held at Ripon College last Saturday, outpacing all of their Midwest Conference foes and falling only to powerhouse Carthage College. Consistent team scoring was the key to the Vikings’ success as 13 different athletes scored in 14 different events.
Leading the charge for the Vikings was James Hahn, who finished first in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles. Kolade Agbaje-Williams recorded a second place finish in the long jump and tied with teammate Nate Semenak for second place in the triple jump. Third place finishes for the Vikings included Mitch Goodman in the 10,000-meter run, Phil Keith in the 3,000 steeplechase, Steve Geisthardt in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles, Hahn in the 100 high hurdles, Agbaje-Williams in the 400 dash, and the 1,600-meter relay team of Abaje-Williams, Hahn, Geisthardt and Kyle Hewitt.
The Lady Vikings finished eighth at the meet. Colleen Detjens had the best showing, with third place finishes in the 1,500- and 800-meter runs.
Both Vikings teams travel to the Twilight meet in Madison on Saturday.
