Viking Field Project Update, Northwest Moves First Two Home Games
At this time, the Viking Field Project will not be completed by the date of the Northwest Vikings first regularly scheduled home Varsity game against Seward on September 7, 2022, so, officials have made the necessary arrangements to move that game to Hastings College.
The game is still scheduled for 7 PM. Arrangements are being made to ensure that all groups that participate at home games will perform (Band, Cheerleaders, Dance Team).
The game scheduled for September 14, 2022, against Elkhorn North is being scheduled for Memorial Stadium at Grand Island Senior High. Due to another previously scheduled game, game time is TBD.
With the Varsity schedule provided by the NSAA, the Vikings first two Varsity games are at away sites, then the two games as discussed above, followed by two more away games. The first game scheduled for the renovated Viking Field will be the October 7, 2022, home game against Gering.
This game will also serve as the schools Homecoming game. As the date gets closer, more details about the Homecoming game and alumni activities will be released.
