Mt. Solo families,

Athletics at Mt. Solo have begun and we have had some success with both our Football and Volleyball programs. The first season runs to the end of October when Girls Basketball and Wrestling begin, continuing through the winter. Boys Basketball and Girls Bowling begin early spring and we round out the year with Track. It is important that all participating students have their completed paperwork, including physical forms, submitted to our athletics secretary before the respective seasons begin. Although sports at Mt. Solo are important for physical fitness and self-esteem, all Skyhawk athletes are students first. To help support them in their academic setting we will have a study hall every Wednesday from 1:30 to 2:30. There the students will have the opportunity to check their grades and work on assignments. We encourage all students to consider participating in a sport here at Mt. Solo. You must be either a seventh or eighth grader to play sports with the exception of wrestling, where this year there has been a change in the eligibility requirements that enables sixth graders to participate in practices and compete in the matches. Our coaches are great at developing the requisite skills to be competitive, while molding them into fine young men and women. Please check out our Facebook page for updates on our teams and athletes in the classroom.
