Senior Night Sucess


In what felt like an eternity since our last game, your Vikings celebrated senior night and capped it off with a victory on Wednesday night as we hosted the LaPorte Slicers (9-9). 

The Slicers, who are now coached by Valpo Alum Jordan Heckard (Class of 2004, member of the 2004 regional champs who ironically defeated LaPorte 62-55), jumped out to an early lead and won the first quarter 5-13. Valpo turned things around in the second quarter winning 20-13 to go into halftime down just one, 25-26. The Vikings kept the momentum going in the second half winning the third quarter by 3 and the fourth quarter by 8 to give us a victory with a final score of 57-47.

Mason Jones lead both teams in scoring with 19 points on the night and also added in 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Senior Breece Walls scored 16 points and had 5 rebounds. Senior Michael Flynn added 8 points. Valpo shot 13 of 15 from the free throw line and 50% from behind the three point arc. 

The coaching staff would like to think this year's senior class for being a tremendous group of young men that represent what it means to be a Viking. We are very proud of all they have accomplished and are excited to see all the great things they will accomplish in the future. 

The JV Boys basketball team defeated the Laporte Slicers 70-53. All 12 players scored in a balanced attack, especially in the 2nd half. Justin Clark led the way with 14 points and 3 assists. Caden Crowell had 11 points and Michael Ridley had 4 rebounds and 4 steals. 

Thanks to Palmer Photography and Valpo Life for always capturing great moments!

Next up for Valpo is a home game as Crown Point (14-4) comes to town on Friday night in DAC action.
