Vikings bring home 2016 State Track 3A Runner Up trophy

By Dean Close · 7:56am May 23rd, 2016
Jim Struve stood on the bumper of a Vinton fire truck, looking toward the athletes who had just set new school records and returned home with a 2016 Iowa State Track Meet Runner Up trophy and banner. But the Vinton-Shellsburg High School Activies and Atheletics Director did not start his remarks by praising the speed or athleticism of the students who had gathered around him.

While their fans erupted in cheers, the four members of the Vinton-Shellburg girls 4 X 800 relay team reacted to their school-record setting performance with tears. It was an emotional end to years of teamwork, hard work and friendship among three friends and a little sister who have made running an important part of their high school routine.

The silliness had a serious source; the hours of play was a celebration of years of hard work. The Vinton-Shellsburg Middle School students filled the lawn south of the school, participating in wheelbarrow races, some inflatable games, and other activities. The yard party – a revival of a school tradition that many of the students' parents can remember – was a reward for the students' personal achievements, as well as the school as a whole.

The Vinton-Shellsburg Vikings track team heads into Saturday in 2nd place among all Class 3A teams, with 34 points, seven behind 1st-place Pella. Leading the Vikings on Friday were Tyler Bartz, who took second place in the long jump while setting a new school record for the second time this season; and the 4 X 200 team (Nick Hyland, Jordan Womochil, Joel Barnes and Bartz), which finished second with a time of 1:28.
