Defense smothers Mustangs

SOLON– The Solon defense did everything it needed to do.
The Spartans held the Mount Vernon Mustangs to just over 100 yards of offense and forced two turnovers in a 42-6 victory Friday night.
The win puts Solon at 4-1 on the year; the Mustangs dropped to 1-4.
On a night when Solon quarterback J. J. Hanus completed only two of his 12 pass attempts, the Spartans ended up grinding it out with 407 rushing yards.
Hanus accounted for 153 yards and three touchdowns on only 11 carries.
But it was the defense that got things going early for Solon.

Lady Spartans move up to No. 4

SOLON– Solon’s varsity volleyball team escaped No. 12 Central DeWitt on the road and moved up another notch in the rankings last week.
“DeWitt did a good job of taking us out of our game, but the girls showed enough maturity to end up winning in four,” noted Head Coach Kurt Trout. “Our defense, led by Rylee Smith, did a great job picking up the offense on an off night.”
Solon captured the first two games narrowly, 26-24 and 25-23, but DeWitt took the third game by another narrow score, 23-25. The Lady Spartans rallied in the fourth game, by another close score, 25-20.

SOLON– Heading into mid-season, Solon’s girls cross country teams collected team titles in varsity girls and both junior varsity divisions and runner-up for the varsity boys, in the Spartans’ only home meet of the season Sept. 20 at the Solon Nature and Recreation Area.
The girls rolled to a 23 point total in the seven-team meet, undercutting Williamsburg (52), Northeast-Goose Lake (92), Mount Vernon (103), Clear Creek-Amana (105), Central Clinton-DeWitt (171) and Wilton (190). North Cedar and Tipton ran partial squads.
