Lady Spartans sweep Central DeWitt

SOLON– The Lady Spartans have made the most out of their three homes matches, but the next two are biggies.
Solon’s varsity volleyball squad returned home for a 3-0 sweep of Central DeWitt last week after taking northern road trips to face Western Dubuque and Dyersville Beckman. Beckman stretched the Lady Spartans out to five games, while Solon made short work of Western Dubuque.
Coming up, however, are home matches (Oct. 2 and Oct. 4) against two highly ranked teams in West Delaware (4A, No. 6) and Mount Vernon (3A, No. 7).
