Girls head outdoors

MT. VERNON– As their outdoor season kicks off, Solon’s Lady Spartans have a few strengths identified; yet know there is plenty yet to develop.
“For those first few indoor meets, most schools have girls missing; spring break or not ready (to step into competition) yet,” noted Solon girls coach Brent Sands. “We– and they– might have half a team, and don’t have the combinations together.”
Solon’s first taste of the great outdoors was set for Tuesday at Tipton. This Saturday, they will be at Kingston Stadium in Cedar Rapids.
