Spartans on track for continued success

Solon looks to extend district title streak

Lady Spartans short on basketball experience

SOLON– Tony Nicol isn’t totally starting from scratch as he prepares the Lady Spartans for the 2013-2014 girl’s varsity basketball campaign, but he’s got a lot of work to do.
The Spartans finished 11-12 last season, good for third place in the WaMaC conference. That team featured six seniors: Kristen Purdy, Rachel Purdy, Kara Misel, Karly Kramer, Brittney Stinocher and Emma Rickels. In the wake of their graduations, Nicol finds himself with three returning starters.

School leaning toward $25M bond issue

Look for a vote in spring of 2014

By Doug Lindner

SOLON– Twenty-five million dollars.
That’s the projected price tag of a bond issue the Solon Community School District (SCSD) Board of Education expects to put before voters in spring of 2014.
But it still isn’t clear what the money will buy.
The district has a wide range of options, including a new middle school and a high school auditorium, and some of those were discussed again at a Nov. 11 board meeting.
What is clear is that the district will have approximately $25 million in bonding capacity to work with.
