Close call at home

SOLON– It was another heart attack courtesy the cardiac kids.
Solon’s Lady Spartans had to face down several match points against the 10th-ranked Maquoketa Cardinals last Tuesday (Sept. 4) before climbing out of a 11-14 hole in the fifth and final game.
The No. 8 Lady Spartans won the marathon (25-27, 25-17, 23-25, 25-16, 16-14), one of two home matches last week.

Just what the doctor ordered

SOLON– It took all of 10 seconds for the Solon Spartans to feel better about themselves.
Jordan Wymer took Mount Pleasant’s opening kickoff 95 yards for a score, and the rout was on.
Solon scored 42 points in the first quarter and let the continuous clock run in the second half for a 56-6 win.
“It was a great win, one in which we really needed to get our confidence back,” said head coach Kevin Miller.  “I thought as a whole we executed much better in all phases of the game, especially on special teams.”

Summer heat to autumn cool for runners

ATKINS– With their first race in autumn-like weather, Solon’s cross country teams responded with three wins and a fourth place at the annual ‘Run Through the Woods’ in Atkins at the Benton Invitational, Sept. 9.
That followed a blistering 90-degree reading earlier in the week. Still, the Class 3A third-ranked Spartan girls held close to No. 1 Assumption of Davenport in the 19-school Sept. 4 Tipton Invitational. The Solon boys were sixth among the 21 full teams competing in the sun-baked run through Tipton City Park.

Newest addition opens
