 Ugly Sweater Night

  Tonight is Ugly Christmas Sweater Night at the varsity basketball games. Please come dressed in your favorite, ugliest Christmas sweater as we cheer on our Viqueens and Vikings! 

Viking Basketball

  The Vikings played well at East Mills last Friday and vs Essex on Tuesday.  

   The Vikings defeated East Mills, 47-28. While not shooting as well as we want to, our defense kept up pressure on the Wolverines and did not let them get back in the game in the 2nd half.  

  Tuesday the Vikings defeated the Trojans of Essex, 84-44. We got a good start and were able to shoot very well against them to pull away throughout the game. The win takes us to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference race. Going into tonight’s contest with Fremont-Mills, there is a 3 way tie with Sidney and Fremont-Mills for the conference lead. Our next 2 games are with them so they will have a lot to do with staying at the top of the conference race early in the season.  

  As we have said before, we appreciate the support and enthusiasm from the parents, family and friends as well as Viking fans. With Stanton Pride, we will be singing the school fight song after home games and invite all of the fans to join us.

Viqueen Basketball

  A poor shooting night led to the first loss of the season for the Viqueens. Coach Snyder said,  "We struggled in every phase of shooting, lay ups, jump shots and free throw shooting was all below average, if we could have stayed in the game with some timely shooting, we would not have had to extend our defense which then was exposed for some easy East Mills lay ups". Final East Mills 52 Stanton 34. Jody Vanderholm led the Queens in scoring with 9 and Chelsea Weis led in rebounding with 9.

  The Viqueens second half run fell short against Essex in Corner Conference action Tuesday night. Down 25-19 at half the Queens battled back to take a lead in the third quarter. Jody Vanderholm led the team in both scoring and rebounds scoring 14 points and having 15 rebounds with Ally Focht right behind with 11 points and 8 rebounds.

Additional Post-Season Volleyball Honors

  Congratulations to the following Viqueen volleyball players who were named to the Omaha World Herald All-Western Iowa 1A volleyball team. Ally Focht was honored as a First Team member and Chelsea Weis was named to the Second Team. Brandy Morrison was honored as an Honorable Mention choice. Congratulations girls!

A pasta dinner will be served 5:00-7:00 PM for a minimum of a $5.00 donation along with live auctions at half time of the girls and boys basketball games.
