VINTON– Led by sophomore Rylee Smith’s 11 steals and 16 points, the Lady Spartans took to the basketball court for the first game of the season last week, a 53-26 win over Vinton-Shellsburg.
“I was very proud of the way we played defense,” said Solon Head Coach Mark Sovers. Solon collected 22 steals on the night and helped generate offense during the season opener.
The Lady Spartans lost a majority of last year’s scoring– Kelsey Dircks, Danielle Herdliska and Brie Winegar– to graduation. “I’m looking forward to seeing how this group will step into those roles,” Sovers said.
