Younger, Wilken Set Records Early in Season

Tyrell Younger talks with Kearney Hub reporter Buck Mahoney after his record setting vault.


Although the track season is just beginning, two Viking athletes have already set new school records.  At the UNK Indoor Meet last week, Cheyenne Wilken surpassed the 38′ 5.5″ record she had set a year ago in the  shot put, setting the new record at 39′ 2″.

This past weekend at the Wilcox Invitational Tyrell Younger set a new school and meet record beating the old record of 13′ 11″ previously set by Tanner Nelson of Bertrand with a vault of 14′ 0″.

Both athletes feel good about the start of their track seasons and look forward to more opportunities to set the bar even higher.  The next meet will be on Thursday, March 2.
