SOLON– A timeworn cliché holds that when one door closes, another opens. Well, for the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) varsity girls track and field team, Mother Nature closed (slammed, actually) the door on a home meet (set for Friday, April 6). However, the Solon Lady Spartans sprang into action and threw together a meet for Thursday, April 5, in Solon, thus beating the weather and providing track and field athletes a rare for-this-season opportunity to compete.
The Lady Spartans won five events and had six runner-ups in the unscored meet. Emily Troyer, Abby Smith and Gabbi Bullard won the shot put, high jump and 400-meter hurdles, respectively. The 4x200-meter relay “A” squad won as well. Khayor Fleck, Ellie Becicka and Emma Wolff were the runner-ups in the long jump, discus and 100-meter dash respectively. The shuttle hurdle relay, 4x100 relay “A” squad and 4x400-meter relay “A” squad also posted second-place finishes for Solon.
Andrea Roller was CCA’s top finisher taking the runner-up spot in the high jump with fifth-place finishes for Cierra Lacina and Cileigh Smiddy in the 200- and 100-meter dashes, respectively. The Creek Girls’ distance medley and sprint medley relay teams also had fifth-place showings.
The Lady Spartans travel to the Brady Street Stadium in Davenport on Thursday, April 12, for an invitational meet starting at 4 p.m. and are at Linn-Mar High School in Marion on Saturday, April 14, for a 10 a.m. invitational. Solon’s regularly scheduled home meet is set for Tuesday, April 17, at 4:15 p.m.
The Clippers travel to Tipton City Park on Thursday, April 12, for a 4:30 p.m. meet and are in Mount Pleasant on Tuesday, April 17, for a 4:30 p.m. invitational. CCA’s Pacha Relays are set for Thursday, April 26, at 4:45 p.m. in Tiffin.
