On April 18, 2006, the Mustangs traveled to Niles North High School for the Viking Invitational. The meet offered three divisions, Varisity, Junior Varisty, and Freshman. Track and Field Meets in Illinois, only offer athletes 2 divisions (Varsity and Sophomore-Freshman). Head Niles North Coach Paul Swanson came up with the idea to have a meet with Three divisions to get more athletes involved in participating in multiple events and to better develop the depth of Track and Field Teams. The meet was huge success, and all three divisions were highly competitive.
