Girls win big at Regional, on to State

MT. PLEASANT– With wins in nine events, the early question at the Regional Track Meet Thursday, May 12, in Mount Pleasant was not if Solon’s girls would win… but by how much.
Quite a bit, actually. The Spartans scored no lower than fifth in any of the 12 individual events, double-placing in eight, and no lower than third in any of the seven relays to rack up 190 points; claiming their first Class 3A Regional banner. That– and a district team title for the boys, as well– kept fans and athletes out on the track and infield for congratulations and photos for half an hour after the meet.
