Solon Middle School girls break armload of track records

SOLON– Running in conditions ranging from near winter to mid-summer; Solon middle school track girls faced a jump to large school competition, had an individual state meet champion and another runner-up, broke an armload of school records and beat just about everybody they faced in the 7th and 8th grade seasons this spring.

Lady Spartans top No. 1 CCA

OXFORD — The seventh-ranked Solon Lady Spartans handed No. 1 Clear Creek Amana (CCA) its second loss of the season with a 10-6 win on the Clippers’ home diamond last Thursday.
The two teams traded the lead in the first inning, Solon put four big runs on the board in the second, and CCA climbed back within a run in the bottom of the third.
For two tense innings it was nip and tuck, but the Lady Spartans broke out to a 9-4 lead with four more runs in the top of the sixth inning and added an insurance run in the seventh.

Solon snaps back

SOLON– The top-ranked Solon Spartans shook off the first two losses of the season and rattled off six wins last week.
Solon traveled to Central DeWitt and Waterloo Columbus before returning home to host Clear Creek Amana (CCA) in doubleheader action last week.
It was CCA’s Clippers that provided the biggest challenge.
Solon’s Brandon Shulista scattered six hits and no earned runs againt the Clippers in a 9-3 win Friday, July 1. Shulista struck out 10 batters while walking four. Nolan Asprey pitched an inning of relief. The Clippers were held scoreless until the top of the sixth inning.

New adult hardcovers

“Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base” by Anne Jacobsen is a non-fiction work about the military base located in the desert 75 miles outside of Las Vegas. Denied that it existed for many years by the U.S. government, this is the first book based on interviews with eyewitnesses to Area 51 history. Jacobsen shows what has really gone on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear weapons to building secret supersonic jets.

New audio books

Audio books are another popular check-out item and since so many are continually checked out, perhaps it is hard to know what is available. Here are four new ones to consider and if they are checked out, ask to have them put on hold for you.
