October 10th

One week. Two titles. Girls feeling the push

TROY MILLS– Cold and wind served as a reminder at the Oct. 6 Lynx Invitational Cross Country meet. It’s late in the season. And as fall temperatures drop, performances have to ramp up. Solon’s girls responded with the week’s second meet title. They now take aim at conference, district and… hopefully… a 10th straight trip to state.
“We start now with ‘more/faster/shorter’ in practice,” outlined coach Emy Williams. “We work on speed, and turnover heading into those meets.”

Sutliff Cider to take part in “Around the World with Iowa Wines” Nov. 3-4

LISBON– The Iowa Wine Trail invites you to “Around the World with Iowa Wines.” The 17th semi-annual special weekend event will be held on Nov. 3 and 4 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day. Each winery will serve food samples paired with the excellent Iowa made wines of the Upper Mississippi River Valley Viticulture Area. The wineries are gearing up to provide unique and creative “Around the World” food samples that bring out the best in their individual, unique wine styles.

Indians take control with 24-14 win

MARION– It was too many turnovers and too much Trev Beiry.
The Marion Indians handed the Solon Spartans their second loss of the season, 24-14, and wrested control of the lead in Class 3A District 6 Friday night in Marion.
Solon quarterback Rory Siddell threw four interceptions in the game, and Marion’s senior running back Trev Beiry blistered the Spartan defense for 178 yards and three touchdowns.
But even with those stats, even with a 21-7 deficit at the half, Solon had a chance at sneaking away with a win.

Lady Spartans overpower ranked foes

SOLON– Mount Vernon was ranked No. 6 in Class 3A; West Delaware was ranked eighth in 4A.
How would the Solon Lady Spartans handle two tough teams, one a longtime rival, in one week?
Apparently, just fine.
Solon’s varsity volleyball team blew through both of its ranked opponents last week, solidifying its grasp on the championship of the regular season WaMaC East.
The Lady Spartans swept Mount Vernon, 25-17, 27-25, 25-22, then dropped a game to West Delaware before taking control, 23-25, 25-21, 25-12, 25-18.

Tony Nicol returns home

SOLON– Tony Nicol knows Solon. He’s a Spartan who basically never left the area. Now after an eight-year absence (he was briefly the Solon Middle School (SMS) counselor), he’s back for good as Solon’s Middle School counselor/facilitator and varsity girls basketball coach.
