SOLON– It’s tough to argue Solon’s continued No. 1 ranking in Class 3A softball.
The Lady Spartans ended the regular season 32-6 over the weekend, finishing with a win over host Ottumwa at a tournament Friday.
Solon’s girls did pick up two losses last week, but they were to two of the best teams in the state.
Clear Creek Amana (No. 1 in Class 4A), perhaps the best team in any class, came to Solon last week and snatched victory away with a late surge, 11-4, while Cedar Rapids Jefferson (No. 4 in Class 5A) squeaked past Solon 3-2 in the first round of the Ottumwa tournament.
