Solon football game delayed one hour
Solon Community School District Activities Director Keith McSweeney has announced the start time for the Solon freshman/sophomore football game Friday at Mount Vernon has been pushed back one hour due to excess heat warnings. The start time for the freshman/sophomore game will be moved to 6 p.m., with the varsity game to follow at approximately 8:15-8:30 p.m.
The freshman/sophomore game will also be shortened to 8 minute quarters as a precaution, but the varsity game is expected to be played in its entirety. “Several other schools in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area are following suit, so hopefully, all the games will go off without any heat related health issues,” McSweeney said.
