Vikings (100) finish ahead of Benton (78) and Union (22) Thursday

VINTON — It was the second meet of the season for the Benton Bobcats after hosting a co-ed invitational Tuesday, but for Vinton-Shellsburg and Union, they began their 2019 campaign Thursday night.

Welcoming eight other teams, the Vikings (100) finished behind just the champion, Dubuque Wahlert Catholic (117), and runner-up, Williamsburg (105), while placing ahead of Benton (78), Denver, Solon (both with 65 points), Union (22), Columbus Catholic (21), and Janesville (12). The notable results are as follows for the trio of local schools, beginning with the field events. Due to the timing system being down, add 0.24 seconds to all race times.
