Undefeated, but room for improvement

SOLON– The Solon Spartans may be unbeaten, but the heart of the schedule is coming up.
Solon’s boys moved to 4-0 last week with a pair of wins, but Head Coach Brad Randall feels there’s lot of room for improvement.
“We still have a lot further to go,” Randall noted. He’s looking to shore up a defense that let West Delaware back into Friday night’s 62-53 road win and to put more rebounds in the hands of the Spartans.

Solon girls lose nailbiter to West Delaware

SOLON– The Lady Spartans got down and couldn’t climb back.
The West Delaware Hawks and the Solon Lady Spartans fought a defensive battle Friday night in Solon, but the home team couldn’t overcome a slow start in the 31-30 loss.
The Solon girls spotted the Hawks an 11-2 first quarter lead, then held West Delaware to 20 points the rest of the way.
“We let their scorers have too many open looks,” Head Coach Mark Sovers noted. But the Lady Spartans played better defensively as the game progressed, he said.
