For 11 years, the Solon High School Mock Trial Team has achieved many successes. Last year, one of the teams made it all the way to the top four teams in the state. So it's not surprising that this year, Solon had a new success. The real surprise...for the first time an all freshmen team qualified to regionals.

“I was hopeful that they would have a shot,” said Mock Trial Coach, Robert Rivera. “I was surprised [that they moved on] only because they’re new.”

Rivera explained that qualifying to regionals means teams first must battle at districts- a competition that is fierce. Mock trial is challenging because the teams that face each other are randomly drawn, so the top team at one school could go up against the top team from another school-and only one team advances. Solon teams can face Solon teams, because of how big Solon’s team is. This year the Solon team consists of 10 different teams and 72 students.

Three out of Solon’s 10 teams moved on to regionals. Team Alido, an all junior team, Team Kennedy, made up of juniors and seniors and Team Ginsburg, the all freshmen team.

“I didn’t expect it at all,” said freshman team member Izma Khaliq.

Lady Comets Advance to Final Four; State Semi-Final Game Set for Friday, March 20, at 6 p.m. in Columbus
Sunday, March 15, 2015

The SHS Lady Comets basketball team has advanced to the Final Four in the OHSAA State Tournament. Solon will play Toledo Notre Dame Academy in the first Division 1 State Semi-Final game at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 20, at the OSU Schottenstein Center-Value City Arena.

In an effort to allow students and staff to travel to Columbus to support the team, Solon High School will dismiss at 1 p.m. on Friday. All bus routes will run from the high school at that time. The schedule for the day (which includes shortened periods due to the final day of OGT testing that morning) is attached to this message and posted on the SHS home page.

Travel to Columbus:
Rush-hour traffic in Columbus can be quite challenging on a normal Friday. Now, with the State Tournament games as well as first-round Men’s NCAA Tournament games also in Columbus Friday night, we want to be sure our Comet fans have adequate time for safe travel to the game.

ALL tickets for the game are reserved seating. Tickets are $8 pre-sale and $10 at the door. We encourage everyone to purchase tickets in advance this week at school to ensure you sit in the Solon cheering section.
