Lakeview PTO’s first annual ‘Spartan Dash’ set for April 21

SOLON– The Lakeview Elementary PTO will be hosting its first annual “Spartan Dash” on April 21, rain or shine. The “Spartan Dash” is a fun and crazy fitness event that will serve as the Lakeview PTO’s largest fundraising event of the year. Students can sign up to participate in the event on family teams. Family teams will walk, skip or run through obstacles set up along the one-mile trail in the Solon Nature and Recreation Area. All obstacles will be suitable for both children and adults. The event will start and end at the round barn in the Solon Nature and Recreation Area.

Spartans ousted in substate final by Assumption

IOWA CITY– “It was a game where you couldn’t have too many bad possessions in a row,” Solon Head Coach Brad Randall said. “You have to play pretty flawless to beat them.”
The Solon Spartans fell behind Davenport Assumption in the first quarter of a Class 3A substate final last Monday night, and couldn’t overcome a double-digit lead, losing 59-40.
Solon had trouble keeping up with Assumption’s transition offense, and Assumption’s defense prevented Solon’s Turner Wentzien from scoring until well into the fourth period.

Solon JV girls finish season 19-2

SOLON– The Solon junior varsity (JV) girls’ basketball team recently finished its season with a record of 19 wins and two losses. The Lady Spartans were 13-1 in their division, and finished first in the WaMaC East for the second consecutive year. Solon went undefeated at home and put together a 13-game winning streak that spanned from early December to late January.

Don’t be D-ficient

SOLON– Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, especially in the winter? If you are like most of us, one of the main reasons you feel this way is due to a lack of sunlight and vitamin D. Our bodies naturally produce vitamin D when we receive direct skin exposure to sunlight. In fact, we are supposed to get 90 percent of our vitamin D from the sun. This becomes a real challenge living in Iowa during the primary winter months, November through February. In the winter, the sun is not as powerful and our bodies are simply unable to produce ample amounts of vitamin D.
