Matmen win NLS tourney

A narrow defeat at home followed by an unanticipated tournament victory highlighted the efforts of the Glencoe-Silver Lake wrestling team last week. 
Still coping with more than their share of injury and malaise, the Panthers hosted Wright County Conference foe Litchfield under the spotlight in their home arena on Tuesday, Jan. 13. In a tight battle that came down to the final match, the visiting Dragons came away with a 34-32 win.

Panthers entering crucial stretch

Last week was one of ups and downs for the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team. The Panthers kicked off their week with a 54-46 win at Litchfield on Tuesday, Jan. 13, but a four-game winning streak came to an end  with a 73-72 overtime loss at Annandale three nights later.
“Annandale is very good and we knew that,” coach Robb DeCorsey said. “It’s a tough place to play and I’m not sure when the last time we won there is.”

Busy week for gymnasts

Three meets in five days last week made for some very busy times for the Glencoe-Silver Lake gymnastics team. After traveling to face Waconia in a dual meet on Tuesday, Jan. 13, the Panthers hosted a triangular meet and a five-team invitational competition within hours of one another on Jan. 16 and 17.

Cagers remain on a roll

After a pulse-pounding pair of contests, the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ basketball team deserves a week off. However, after claiming second-half rallies to win both games last week – including a double-overtime victory in south Minneapolis – the Panthers might not want to cool their heels.

It was an exciting start to the new year for the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team as the Panthers began 2015 with a 62-56 overtime victory at rival Hutchinson on Tuesday, Jan. 6.
“Hutchinson is a good team and we knew that,” coach Robb DeCorsey said. “We knew it was going to be a battle and it was. We made enough plays to come out on top.”

Grapplers seize second at Minnetonka

It was a week with a little bit of everything for the Glencoe-Silver Lake/Lester Prairie wrestling team.
The Panthers competed in a Wright County Conference dual meet with New London-Spicer on Tuesday, Jan. 6 that featured only seven matches due to illness and injuries in the GSL/LP lineup.

Panthers dominate Sibley East

The Glencoe Silver-Lake girls’ basketball team continued to find success against Section 2AA North rivals last week, besting Sibley East 55-41 at home on Tuesday, Jan. 6.
The victory, which preceded a weeklong break, gave the Panthers a 4-1 mark in contests against prospective section tournament rivals.
“This game was by far the most active we have been on defense,” coach Zach Otto-Fisher said. “It felt like we tipped over half [of Sibley East’s] passes. [Guard Maddy Kalenberg] got all the girls playing sound defense.”
