June 11th

Girls sweep Mustangs

SOLON- In the bottom of the fifth inning, Mel Breza cracked a three-run homer to bring an early finish to the first half of the Spartans’ softball doubleheader versus Mount Vernon on June 4.
Pink was the color of the night in an annual match to Strike-out Cancer. Lady Spartans paid tribute to classmate Brett Smith while many of the Mount Vernon team played in honor of long-time Mustang Coach Gary Stamp who died in November last year from lung cancer.
Pink chalk lines marked the field, players wore bright pink socks and uniforms, even the umpire carried pink ball pouches.

Spartans take two

SOLON– There’s going to be a learning curve.
Solon Head Baseball Coach Keith McSweeney knows that, but he and his staff are hopeful the Solon varsity team can be competitive by July when it starts to become important.
The Spartans, defending their second state baseball title, have limped out to a 4-11 start (3-5 in the WaMaC East), but the coach is pretty convinced it’ll get better.
“We’re not pleased with the wins and losses,” he said. “We have high expectations.”

Food For Thought

“What’s your middle initial?” my friend asked. Her voice, even on my cell phone had a definite note of excitement. Then she wanted to know if I’d ever lived in some town that I’d never even heard of, let alone ever lived there.
