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.

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.

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.”

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.
