Hitting their stride

It’s scary to think, but the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ cross country team may have its top five runners cracking under 17 minutes in the near future, as the times continue to improve from meet to meet.
After proving their worth against top-ranked Waseca back on Sept. 4 at the Montgomery invitational, the Panthers went on to take first place at the Norwood Young America invitational on Sept. 9 by placing runners one through five in the top 20. They accomplished that same feat two days later at New London-Spicer’s meet Sept. 11, while claiming the top spot once again.

Tigers chew up, spit out GSL 47-0

If you’re looking for stat line that sums up Friday’s 47-0 loss the Panther football team suffered at the hands of the Hutchinson Tigers, it’s 419 yards rushing to three.
Glencoe-Silver Lake was held to a meager three yards on 28 carries, while Hutchinson was 80 yards shy of five football fields on 44 attempts.
The juggernaut that is the Tiger offense centered around senior halfback Robbie Grimsley, who finished with 256 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries.

Injuries plague girls’ soccer

Getting hit with the injury bug, the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ soccer team dropped all three of its games last week with a depleted roster.
The Sept. 9 match up between the Panthers and Mayer Lutheran was the closest match all week, but resulted in a 3-1 loss. GSL fell to Mound Westonka two days later, 7-0, before a 6-1 loss at the hands of the Rockford Rockets Saturday.
Fielding a young and undersized team has taken its toll on Zach Otto-Fisher’s girls, who are without goalkeeper Zoe Christensen, and midfielders Shelby Clouse, and Maddie Kuehn.

Big weekend for the Lady Panthers

After stringing together a pair of three-set losses to Hutchinson and Holy Family Catholic, the Lady Panther volleyball team went on a tear this past weekend at the Heritage Christian Academy invitational, taking second place behind Byron in a heated championship match.
Previous to Saturday’s tournament, Glencoe-Silver Lake fell to Holy Family in three sets 25-20, 25-23, and 25-16 at Glencoe on Sept. 9. The Panthers had the Fire where they wanted them in set two, leading 23-19 before the visitors rattled off six unanswered points to steal the set before closing out the final frame.

Panther tennis faces tough schedule

It’s been a rough schedule for the Panther tennis team, which played six matches in seven days and went 2-4 in that span while dropping all four matches against teams from the Wright County Conference.
Delano came to Glencoe and drubbed the Panthers 7-0 on Sept. 9 before Holy Family Catholic routed GSL by the same score.
GSL notched its only wins of the week against Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa and Melrose at the Litchfield quad on Saturday, 7-0 and 4-3. But the hosting Dragons came away with a 4-3 victory before the Panthers again lost 7-0 to Mound Westonka Monday night.
