Valparaiso Vikings Celebrate Second Unified Track and Field State Championship
Valparaiso bested the field to take home their second straight and second overall Unified Track and Field State Championship. The Vikings came in as the reigning champions, defending their title from 2018-19. The 2019-20 Unified Track and Field Season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Vikings finished the meet with 126 points. The Fishers Tigers finished as runner-up with 106 points. Only a few points separated second, third, and fourth place. The Carroll (Fort Wayne) Chargers finished third with 103 points and the South Bend John Adams Eagles finished fourth with 98 points. Bloomington North rounded out the top five with 91 points.

Unified Sports® enables persons with and without intellectual disabilities to participate on the same team for sports training and competition. The “Champions Together” partnership between the Indiana High School Athletic Association and Special Olympics Indiana was launched in 2012. While the IHSAA provides the framework for competition, Special Olympics Indiana provides technical support and financial grants to a number of schools who start new Unified Track ® programs.
