Students enjoy intensity, challenges of Mock Trial

Glencoe-Silver Lake’s (GSL) Mock Trial team is having one of its most successful years of its existence — currently 3-1 as it headed into its final competition Thursday, Jan. 29, at the Carver County Courthouse.
But its participants have found the activity far more fulfilling than its win-loss ratio.
Many of the team members jokingly claim they joined Mock Trial from “peer pressure” by GSL instructor Tom Schoper, one of the team’s advisers.

Rough week for GSL girls

What had been a high-flying Glencoe-Silver Lake girls basketball team was brought back down to Earth last week as a six-game winning streak was replaced by a two-game losing skid.
“Tough week last week,” coach Zach Otto-Fisher said. 
With one of their top players, Maddie Monahan, dealing with the flu bug, the Panthers fortunes turned for the worse as the young squad fell from the top of the Wright County Conference West standings.

Panthers settle for split

Despite being upended in one of its two road games last week, the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team remained in the thick of the hunt for both a top finish in the Wright County Conference West as well as a No. 1 seed for the upcoming Section 2AA Tournament.
The Panthers entered this week at 13-5 overall and 4-2 in the WCC West after claiming a lopsided win at Dassel-Cokato on Tuesday, Jan. 27, followed by a disappointing loss at New London-Spicer three nights later.
