Gridders even record at .500 with win at Delano

It didn't come as easily as Homecoming, but the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team clawed its way back to .500 by means of a gritty 16-13 victory at Delano on a cold and damp setting off Highway 12 on Friday, Oct. 7.

Much like the previous week, however, the Panthers had to rally from a first quarter deficit.

After both sides went three-and-out on their respective opening drives, the Tigers took their second possession 86 yards to seize a 6-0 lead on a 13-yard touchdown pass.

Cross-Country teams speeding towards the finish line

Also accounting in the Panthers' team score of 206 points were: Ethan Knudten, who took 47th in 18:00.00; Oscar Pena, who placed 63rd in 18:18.90; Zak Herout, who was 69th in 18:27.02.

Another WCC West title in sight for spikers

Two more big circuit wins last week pushed the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team's record to 17-5 overall, with the Panthers still boasting an unblemished 5-0 mark in Wright County Conference West play.

GSL first disposed of WCC West rival Annandale in a three-game sweep (25-21, 26-24, 25-17) on Tuesday, Oct. 4, finishing off the Panthers' annual "Dig Pink" cancer awareness/fundraiser night with a victory.

Girls' soccer season comes to a close

The 2016 season came to a close for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls' soccer team in a 6-0 loss at St. Peter in the opening round of the Section 2A Tournament. The Panthers were seeded 13th in this year's sectional bracket, while the Saints were the No. 4 seed.
