Pair of seconds for Lady Spartans

TIFFIN– Heading into the last event, it was a long shot. To pull out a championship in the April 5 Creek Track and Field Classic, Solon’s girls would have to finish three or more places better than host Clear Creek Amana (CCA) in the 4x400 relay. CCA erased the question mark, though, with a nine-second win over the Spartans, who held on for third in the event and runner-up in the meet.
