Comet Athletic News - No School November 8

This has been a great week for Solon Comet athletics and our student athletes:

  • The boys cross country team earned 3rd place at States yesterday.
  • The volleyball team won a Regional Championship and is headed back to the State Final Four later this week!
  • Cross country runners Ellie Radis and Jada Freeman advanced to States, finishing 54th and 91st, yesterday in Hebron.
  • The boys soccer team won the District Championship and played in the Regional Semi-Finals.
  • The football team earned a playoff birth in the Regional Quarterfinals.

Volleyball and football both play on Friday:

Volleyball in the State Semi-Finals at noon vs. Columbus St. Francis DeSales at the Nutter Center at Wright State University.

Football in the Regional Quarterfinals at 7 p.m. vs. Canton McKinley at the Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

NO SCHOOL FRIDAY: Back-to-back trips to the State Volleyball Final Four is a significant accomplishment. Given the noon start time of the State Semi-Final game in Dayton, Solon High School will not have classes on Friday, November 8, to enable students and staff to travel to Dayton to support the Comets.

SPIRIT BUS: We are offering a Spirit Bus to Dayton and the State Semi-Final game. The volleyball Spirit Bus will be $10 and includes a game ticket. The bus will leave from the pool pad at 8 a.m. on Friday morning and return to SHS after the game (students will then have time to get to Canton to watch the football Comets at 7 p.m. if they choose). Spirit Bus sign up will be in the Athletic Office by 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

TICKET SALES: All tickets for volleyball and football are $8 presale and $9 at the gate. All seats are GENERAL ADMISSION. Presale tickets will be available in the Athletic Department this week (enter the school at Door 27 near the Athletic Office). Presale is CASH ONLY.

Volleyball tickets will be sold on Tuesday and Thursday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Football tickets will sold on Wednesday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

SPIRIT SHIRTS: Limited edition Comet Volleyball Final Four t-shirts are available presale only. Please see the attached order form for details. Football playoff shirts are also available presale. Please see the attached order form for details. ORDERS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 10 a.m. MONDAY.

 Congratulation to all our Solon Comet fall athletes. We are all Comet Proud!
