Class 3A District 5 Football Awards

Class 3A District 5 has officially announced their awards now that the champion Spartans from Solon were eliminated from the playoffs, when they got fleeced 35-7 by Cedar Rapids Xavier in the second semi-final game Thursday.


The 3A title game will feature the 12-0 Saints as the ?road team? versus 11-1 Pella Thursday at 7 p.m. at the UNI-DOME.
