Netters move on to sections

It’s onto sections for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ tennis team. The Panthers played out their final Wright County Conference matches last week with a dual competition against Hutchinson as well as the conference tournament.

GSL dropped a 7-0 decision to the Tigers in their home finale on Tuesday, Sept. 29 before heading to the WCC tourney in Orono two days later.

The conference as a whole was not kind to the Panthers, as only the No. 3 doubles tandem of Marlaina Chelman and Katie Doolittle mustered up a victory against the difficult WCC field.

CC teams run in Cokato and Duluth

The Glencoe-Silver Lake cross country teams headed out on the road for a pair of meets last week, traveling to Cokato on Tuesday, Sept. 29 and making their way to Duluth for a large weekend meet on Saturday, Oct. 3.

At Cokato’s Collinwood Park for the Dassel-Cokato Invite, the Panther boys placed fourth while the girls took fifth. Megan Siewert was GSL’s top individual finisher with a third-place time of 20 minutes, 45.93 seconds on the 4,000-meter girls’ course. Michael Schaefer took fourth on the 5,000-meter boys’ course with a time of 17:18.29.

Girls' soccer seeking elusive second win

It was another difficult week for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ soccer team as the Panthers went goalless in their last three games and have now failed to score in nine of their 13 games this season.

A home game against Hutchinson on Tuesday, Sept. 29 was particularly heartbreaking for the Panthers. After more than 79-1/2 minutes of scoreless play, the Tigers tallied the breakthrough tally on a long arcing goal that soared into the GSL net with just 27 seconds remaining in regulation time.

While the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team’s string of clean sweeps came to an end at seven matches on Monday, Oct. 5 at Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop, it only took one more game for the Panthers to defeat the Thunderbirds and improve their winning streak to eight matches.

GSL looked well on its way to a clean sweep at GFW, posting a 10-0 game in the first game before the hosts rallied for a 25-22 victory.
