Last Friday, as the lights brightened on Ki-RO Gambrell Field, the Walker Vikings faced a very crucial region game against Mortimer Jordan. This game was important because, Walker’s chances at a region title hung in the balance. The Vikings knew that to win, they would have to perform better than they had all season.
Perform is just what the Vikings did! The final score of the game was a whopping 38-6 in favor of our very own Walker Vikings. This is the first time Walker has won a Region Championship since the Region system was created in 2000. Being Region Champions is more than just a title though; being Region Champions means that the Vikings will start the playoffs at home, against a team that is ranked 4th in an opposing region.
All the students are behind the Vikings and have high hopes for the rest of this season!
