Cripps new full-time officer in Silver Lake

 

SL pool, parks receive $5,700 from Twins grant program

The refurbished seats and new dugouts at the Silver Lake Lions softball field are proof that volunteerism and community spirit are alive and well in Silver Lake. 

Mental strength

What a difference a year can make, especially in the case of the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ cross country team, which nabbed first place over No. 3 ranked Waseca at the Montgomery invitational on Thursday, Sept. 4.
A season ago at Montgomery with some of the state’s top teams competing, the Panthers placed eighth overall. Jac Chelman and Brandon Richter placed inside the top 10 while the rest of the pack was outside the top 50.

Welcome to the WCC

The New Prague Trojans were graciously welcomed into the Wright County Conference Friday night as the Panther football team doled out a 14-0 loss in the first game ever played on the Trojans’ field.
Glencoe-Silver Lake’s defense earned the shutout, thanks to two first-half, red-zone interceptions by junior safety Teddy Petersen, who was all over New Prague’s big tight end James Fuerniss once the Trojans got near the end zone. Petersen and cornerback Bennett Bielke shut down Fuerniss, who didn’t have a single catch all game.

Lady Panthers split with NYA, Hutch

The Lady Panther volleyball team saw both ends of the spectrum last week, when it swept Norwood Young America on Sept. 2, before Hutchinson claimed all three sets two days later in Glencoe.
At NYA, Glencoe-Silver Lake controlled the game with stout defense and an “up tempo pace,” according to Head Coach Lori Schwirtz. The Panthers took set one 25-22 before winning 25-13 and 25-20.

Girls see where they want to be

Splitting games last week, the Panther girls’ soccer team caught a glimpse of where it was a year ago, and where it would like to be in the future.
Glencoe-Silver Lake came away with its second victory of the season on Sept. 2 when it faced an equally inexperienced team in the Spectrum Sting.
The Panthers came out on top 4-2 thanks to two goals by eighth-grader Emily Thalmann, but GSL took a 7-0 beating at the hands of the Waconia Wildcats just two days later on the same field in Glencoe.

Rusten, Davis win at Brainerd

It was a tough week for Panther tennis, as Glencoe-Silver Lake lost all three of its matches to Orono, Annandale and St. Peter.
Though they didn’t perform well over those matches, GSL did manage to claim fourth place at the Moose Tournament in Brainerd on Saturday.
Eight teams took part in the bracket, with hosting Brainerd capturing first place with 25 points. Four out of Brainerd’s seven positions took first place in the tournament.

Girls stumble at Montgomery

While the cross country boys found success at Montgomery, the Panther girls didn’t fare quite as well.
GSL took 21st out of 21 teams with 503 points as only one Panther – Erica Hecksel – cracked the top 100 runners.
Hecksel’s time of 18:48 earned her 61st place. The next Panther to cross the finish line was Taylor Venier at 117 with a time of 20:58. Robin Swift came in at 122 with 21:05, while Marlaina Chelman crossed three spots later at 125 with 21:13.
