Lady Spartans notch conference win

Solon takes 3-2 win from Central DeWitt
The Lady Spartans celebrate a point during a varsity volleyball match with the Marion Indians Oct. 8 in Solon. The girls fell, 3-1.

DeWITT– Either way, one team was going to pick up its first divisional conference win.
That team was Solon.
The Lady Spartan varsity volleyball team moved to 13-16 on the season and picked up its first WaMaC East Division win of the season at Central DeWitt Thursday, Oct. 10.
But it didn’t come easily.
It took five sets to overcome the Sabers (23-25, 25-14, 25-17, 19-25, 15-11). Statistics were not available at press time.
The win came on the heels of a four-set loss to Marion at home Oct. 8. The Indians downed the Lady Spartans 3-1 (25-21, 33-31, 23-25, 25-21) in a string of really close games.
Solon also picked up a couple of wins Oct. 12 at a Center Point-Urbana tournament, defeating Waterloo West (2-0) and Davenport Assumption (2-1).
The Lady Spartans hosted pool play for the WaMaC Conference Tournament Monday, Oct. 14, with bracket play Thursday, Oct. 17, at Marion.
Solon opens the postseason in a Class 3A Region 6 quarterfinal matchup paired against Benton Community Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. in Van Horne. The winner advances to a semifinal at Davenport Assumption Tuesday, Oct. 29, with the regional final decided Monday, Nov. 4, at Iowa City West High.
