Trapshooting expands, gains recognition

In only its second year in existence, the Glencoe-Silver Lake trapshooting team will take part in making history this year, along with the rest of the high school trap teams in Minnesota.
The Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) approved trapshooting as a varsity sport in December, allowing athletes to letter.
While the MSHSL adopted the activity, the sport is still primarily ran by the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League (MSHSCTL), which handled the sport in previous years.

Boys have ‘learned a lot’ since last year

After a disappointing 2013 season in which it finished last in the Wright County Conference, the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ golf team is looking to get back on track.
The good news is that the Panthers only lost one player to graduation in Joe Fehrenbach. The bad news is that he was the team’s most consistent golfer last year, finishing 50th in the conference.
However, the rest of Joe Fehrenbach’s teammates trailed closely behind.
Tate Lilienthal, Patrick Fehrenbach, Dylan Schuth and Eric Steffel finished the season ranked 51st through 54th.

Up for grabs

With everyone returning from a year ago when it finished ninth out of 11 teams in the Wright County Conference, the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ golf team is poised to make a run toward the upper half of the conference.
“Litchfield has been dominant the past couple of years, and they have everyone back,” Head Coach Scott Eckhoff explained. “After that, it’s (the conference) a toss up. We’re all right there. It’s going to be fun, competitive golf.”
In order to climb a few spots in the conference, Eckhoff said his golfers just need to focus on their game.

Putting the pieces together

It will be tough to top last year’s 17-4 West Division championship baseball team, but that’s exactly what Head Coach Dean Schwirtz and his Panthers need to do.
Glencoe-Silver Lake graduated seven seniors from that team, which lost to Watertown-Mayer 3-1 in the Section 2 (Class AA) semifinal.
The most notable names missing from last year include ace pitchers Ethan Maass and Derek Bratsch. The two combined accounted for 95 of 141 innings pitched, as well as 118 of the team’s 158 strikeouts.

Teen injured in accident

Morgan Rumrill, 16, of Silver Lake, suffered non-life-threatening injuries in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Highway 212 and Morningside Avenue at the east edge of Glencoe. The accident occurred Wednesday, April 2, at about 4:20 p.m. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Rumrill was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Aveo northbound on Morningside Avenue and was nearly through the intersection when her vehicle was broadsided by a 1998 Dodge Ram driven by Jeffrey Kuechle, 33, of Paynesville. Kuechle was not injured.

Spring Jazz concert

Last Thursday, the Glencoe-Silver Lake Jazz Bands I and II performed at the Glencoe City Center in conjunction with the GSL FFA pork chop feed. The spring concert was to feature the “MIDIots” from Bemidji State University, but the special guests had to cancel due to inclement weather. Yet, the GSL jazz bands still performed. Above are members of the Jazz I band. From left to right are Ashley Alsleben on the alto saxophone, Lili Mallak on tenor saxophone and Richard Wilson on baritone saxophone.
