Eisenhower had five second-place finishes, topped by two from Sean Broihier in the 100-dash (11.32) and the long jump (19-10).
Three other runner-up spots went to Green, 400-dash (52.98), Nick Taylor, 200-dash (22.98), and Sam Schwab, high jump (5-10).

Rounding out the top-three were the 4x100 relay (46.34) behind Scaffidi, Alex Vlaj, Nick Rastas and Broihier.
The Vikings finished third with 111.666 points.
Dan Western was one of two winners, as he was the 400-dash (52.68) champion. Scott Reichel won the high jump (6-2) and finished second in the triple jump (38-5½).
