SOLON– When that last point fell against them, tears streamed down the faces of the Lady Spartans’ volleyball team.
They hugged, then they wiped their eyes and stood with the runner-up trophy in the center of the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena.
Solon, ranked No. 6 in Class 4A, had taken on the top three seeds in the tournament and had almost run the table, just running out of points to play against the No. 1 team, Charles City, in the 4A final Saturday in Cedar Rapids.
