Girls win big at Regional, on to State

MT. PLEASANT– With wins in nine events, the early question at the Regional Track Meet Thursday, May 12, in Mount Pleasant was not if Solon’s girls would win… but by how much.
Quite a bit, actually. The Spartans scored no lower than fifth in any of the 12 individual events, double-placing in eight, and no lower than third in any of the seven relays to rack up 190 points; claiming their first Class 3A Regional banner. That– and a district team title for the boys, as well– kept fans and athletes out on the track and infield for congratulations and photos for half an hour after the meet.

Solon boys’ golf gets back on par at WaMaC

Getting to State: Only half the battle

A strong regional performance is one thing. Solon not only moves up to Class 3A this season, but has to battle seven other regional champions, as well as the rest of the field for points at State. Tops in the field may be Dubuque Wahlert. Mount Vernon-Lisbon is the defending Class 3A champ, though Solon has beaten them a couple of times. “They have some of the top individuals and relays; they can count on scoring high. They have the experienced runners that are used to being there,” noted Solon Coach Brent Sands.
