Lady Spartans overwhelm Raiders

SOLON– The Anamosa volleyball team looked like a deer in the headlights.
The Solon Lady Spartans rattled off 10 straight points behind the serving of junior Taylor Nearad and never looked back, sweeping the Anamosa Raiders 3-0 in a conference match-up last Tuesday in Solon.
Nearad was a serving machine for the Lady Spartans, going 24-27 with 10 aces from behind the service line. No other Lady Spartan had more than seven serves.
Solon won 25-6, 25-12 and 25-6, with liberal substitutions throughout the match.

Big score

Spartans roll up 64-3 win over Anamosa Raiders

SOLON– It didn’t take long to see where this game was going.
Solon’s Jordan Wymer took the opening kickoff 97 yards down the Spartan sideline for a touchdown, and it was off to the races.
Moments later, Solon intercepted Anamosa quarterback Austin Seehusen deep in Raider territory. Two passes to Nathan Hawkins later, there was less than a minute elapsed on the clock, and Solon had taken a 14-0 lead over the winless Anamosa Raiders.
The Spartans rumbled to a 64-3 win Friday night, moving their record to 5-1 on the season, and an unblemished 3-0 in conference play.
