Wrestlers drop pair at Mound Triangular

The Glencoe-Silver Lake wrestling team endured a rough night with lessons learned while competing at Mound Westonka on Thursday, Jan. 22. 
The Panthers knew that they had a good chance at a split in their triangular meet against both the host White Hawks and Willmar, but came home disappointed and empty handed.
While GSL took a predictable 66-10 thumping from Willmar, the No. 3 ranked team in Class AAA, it was the 35-34 loss to Mound Westonka that really hurt.
