April 13th

Creek Girls and Lady Spartans run in Solon

Solon’s Troyer, Smith and Bullard win in hastily composed track meet

North Liberty Leader
SOLON– A timeworn cliché holds that when one door closes, another opens. Well, for the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) varsity girls track and field team, Mother Nature closed (slammed, actually) the door on a home meet (set for Friday, April 6). However, the Solon Lady Spartans sprang into action and threw together a meet for Thursday, April 5, in Solon, thus beating the weather and providing track and field athletes a rare for-this-season opportunity to compete.
