Viking Basketball

  The Viking basketball team played Fremont-Mills on December 20th and came away with a win, 72-39. The Vikings ended the 1st quarter on a good note on a 9-0 run to end the quarter and take a solid lead that we were able build on as the game went on. They came out in the 3rd quarter and put it away with a 20-5 run. The team shot 58% from the game and 80% from the line. Tyler Peterson had a personal best and his teammates did a good job of getting him the ball. The Vikings were very unselfish on offense and their defense really forced them into some tough shots. A good win for them going into the break.

  On January 3rd the Vikings basketball team took on the Griswold Tigers and took another win, 69-26. The Viking defense forced turnovers which they converted into some good looks and quick

points to take 39-11 lead at half. Colby Royal came off bench and really sparked the team on both ends of the court and was a big part of the 36-5 run during 1st quarter and the 2nd quarter.”

  The Vikings Junior Varsity basketball got a good win at Griswold on January 3rd, 37-19. The team got out to a good lead of 19-2 and 25-8 at half. A good solid win that everyone contributed to.

The Queens finished with a W, 9-6. On Tuesday, the team went to Clarinda Lutheran for another game. The Warriors were competitive for all four quarters. They had a fast tempo offense and a solid defense. The final score was Stanton 30 and Clarinda Lutheran 42. Then we played two extra quarters and came away with a win, 29-8. Yesterday the Viqueens traveled to Fremont-Mills. It has been a busy week for the team! Thanks for the positive community support!

Book Club

  Learning Opportunity: Understanding Extreme Weather

We all know that we’ve experienced unusual and harsh weather fluctuations in the past few years. What is a polar vortex? What’s a bomb cyclone? Are oceans getting warmer? Are ocean levels rising?  Why are there so many fires in California and Australia? Why is it happening? What’s going on? Have you had those questions, too?

  “We the People” Book Club, a multi-county group of individuals reading and studying current events books, will sponsor a community learning opportunity at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 12, 2020, Villisca Community Building. James and Jan Norris will be the presenters for the event. They are trained Climate Reality Leaders and are two of the thousands of volunteers in 135 countries who have been trained to educate the public about the changes in our global climate.

  This free event is open to anyone interested. It is our hope that it will provide valuable information as we all navigate our way through the weather uncertainty in today’s world.
