Solon picks up first two losses

SOLON– Solon’s varsity baseball team picked up its first two losses of the season last Friday hosting No. 9 Davenport Assumption.
The Spartan bats hit a quiet spell, and that was enough to drop both ends of a home doubleheader, 1-4 and 4-6.
Marshall Koehn went 2-4 in the first game, during which Solon was limited to six hits. Nick Day contributed the lone RBI.  Ryan Butler pitched well, striking out seven batters over six innings, but picked up his first loss of the season taking his record to 4-1.

Lady Spartans homer happy

SOLON– The Lady Spartans are starting to look a lot like their counterparts on the next field.
Mel Breza, Kara Misel and Casey Musgrave hit home runs (Musgrave’s first, see story below) for the Solon varsity softball squad last week.
The Lady Spartans moved to 22-7 on the season and 13-2 in the WaMaC East, going 5-1 against No. 8 West Delaware, Vinton-Shellsburg, Mid-Prairie and No. 6 Keokuk. Solon is sixth in the Class 3A rankings released June 24 by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.
