Spartans rumble past Washington

SOLON– The Solon boys soccer team entered the postseason on a strong note, blasting Washington 7-0 Wednesday to advance in substate play.
The Spartans scored six times in the first half, including the first two goals by Tim Lance, which came within a minute of each other.
After that, Solon seemed to score at will and controlled the field of play, allowing Washington only three shots at the goal for the game.

Solon girls’ soccer team works hard on the field and off

SOLON– The Solon Soccer Girls season consists of much more than just soccer.
This season was the third year the girls and their families held a garage sale to raise funds for extra equipment and other expenses. Jim’s Septic generously hosted the sale and it has become a tradition with the girls. Lori McKinnie, mother of senior player Alison, spearheaded this project from its inception.
