Lady Spartans split at home

SOLON– Home cooking only went so far,
The Solon Lady Spartans split last week’s home stand, taking a 43-40 win over Western Dubuque and falling 36-26 to Mount Vernon.
The Lady Spartans moved to 4-3 on the season and head into winter break after a girls-boys doubleheader at home Thursday against Mid-Prairie.
Solon hopped out to an 8-2 lead over Western Dubuque last Tuesday, and maintained a lead throughout the game, although Head Coach Mark Sovers would like to see his team more comfortable in the fourth quarter.

First losses come on road

MOUNT VERNON– It was a tough week on the road for the Solon boys’ basketball team last week.
The Spartans picked up their first two losses of the season, falling Tuesday to Western Dubuque at Epworth, 57-44, and to longtime rival Mount Vernon Friday night, 42-33.
“It’s the first time in seven years we lost two games in one week,” noted Solon Head Coach Brad Randall.

Young readers win with books on collegiate sports

SOLON– As a reading resource teacher in Iowa City, Ann Bell was working to entice young readers to pick up books. She asked herself, “What would they like to read?”
She listened to her students.
One look around the classroom of any Iowa City school will reveal more than a little black and gold. This is Hawkeye country after all.
She decided to write books for the students about sports, specifically University of Iowa athletes. Bell contacted Fred Mims at the University of Iowa about the project.
