February 15th

Spartans to state dual

Eight Solon wrestlers to individual tournament Feb. 15

WEST LIBERTY– It all came down to the last two matches for Solon.
After rolling to a 45-24 win over Independence in the opening meet of the regional duals Feb. 6 in West Liberty, the Spartan varsity wrestling team faced off with the home Comets for a berth in the 2018 State Dual Tournament.
Despite leading by 17 points midway through the meet, Solon found itself trailing 34-29 with just the 160 and 170 pound matches remaining.
“We knew we had to win both of those matches,” Solon Head Wrestling Coach Blake Williams said. “There was no ifs ands or buts about it.”

Making wishes come true

Trying bout with cancer inspires Family & Sport Chiropractic to raise money for Make-A-Wish

NORTH LIBERTY– Standing at over 6 feet tall and weighing 250 pounds, 13-year-old Chandler Johnson, of North Liberty, stood out among his peers.
Johnson, who wears a size 17 shoe, had a history of peculiar motor skills dating back to the age of 3, noted by his various athletics coaches over the years. But it was never diagnosed as anything of serious concern.
“We never missed a doctor’s appointment, never missed a sports physical and nobody suspected there was anything wrong,” said Johnson’s mother Angela Bell. “They just said he was clumsy because he’s at that age and he’s large.”
