Week 16

A Solon Salute to The MPS Unified Sports 2015 Bowling Teams who represented their respective schools exceptionally well today at the State Unified Sports School Bowling tournament. Lots of laughter, excellent sportsmanship, peer support and positive athletic competition. (And, much to the chagrin of almost all bowlers......., there were a couple of blasted wobbling pins that just wouldn't fall.     : )    Congrats to all the student athletes and coaches. Thanks for your support. Nancy Chase and Matt McLane

A Solon Salute to Zoey Dubois placed 1st in Vault at the New Hampshire Judge's Cup meet level 6 last weekend. We salute you Zoey!
