Congratulations to the 8th grade girls' basketball team on winning the 2018 District Championship game 35-24 over undefeated Preston!

They played an outstanding game and showed tremendous hustle and determination in front of 200 Viking fans at Rocky Mountain High School on Thursday, March 8th and took 1st place in PSD! Not only did they win district, they also showed positive character throughout the game and their entire season! We're proud of you and Congratulations Vikings!
