The Solon Springs varsity girls basketball team lost its first game of the season to Mellen 29-21 Tuesday night in the Solon Springs School gym.
Senior Ailien Bowker led the Eagles with 11 points. Autumn Kahlar, Mariah Skylordz, Alex Sickler, Valerie Garay and Haylee Garrison all chipped in with two points apiece.
“We’re a very young team,” Eagles coach Al Visger said of this year’s squad.
“We started out pretty tentative, but they played hard and I can’t complain.”
Solon Springs is back in action Friday when the Eagles host the Washburn Castle Guards in another Indianhead Conference match.
