Three students from Sheyenne Ninth Grand center in West Fargo got the chance to hit the field during the Minnesota Vikings game Sunday in Minneapolis.

Alex O'Connell, Bailey Joy Aanenson and Logan Ahern were student ambassadors of the Fuel Up To Play 60 initiative.

The three received free tickets to the game against Denver (which ended in a 35-32 Vikings loss to drop them to 2-10 on the season), as well as on-field access prior to kickoff while players warmed up. The students also got the chance to meet Princess Kay of the Milky Way, Mary Zahurones, the Minnesota mascot, Viktor the Viking, and ran out of the Vikings ship ahead of the players during the festivities leading up to kickoff.
