Plato ski-daddled out of state tournament

It was one and done for the Plato Blue Jays in this year’s state Class C tournament, as five errors doomed the Region 7 champions in a 5-0 loss to 2016 state runner-up Sobieski on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Irish Yard in Green Isle.
Plato made an early exit from the state field as the Skis made an error-aided second-inning tally stand up before adding four more runs – all helped across by Blue Jay miscues – in the contest.
Sobieski starter Tyler Jendro kept the Blue Jays off-balance at the plate early as Plato struggled to put baserunners aboard for through the initial frames.

Girls' soccer rallies to top Mayer Lutheran

After suffering a pair of tough losses to begin the season, the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ soccer team put together an impressive performance to win 3-2 at Mayer Lutheran on Monday, Aug. 28, and claim victory No. 1 on the young season.
The Panthers trailed 2-0 early on the thick, damp turf at Mayer, but gained in confidence through the first half after putting several good chances on the Crusaders’ net.

Justine Helmbrecht claimed a straight-sets (6-3, 6-3) win at No. 1 singles, as did Krissy Major (6-4, 6-4) at No. 4.

Spikers top Byron in opener

Heading into a pair of home matches this week, the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team earned a season-opening victory against Byron in a match played at Hopkins High School on Saturday, Aug. 26.
The Panthers took their opener in a back-and-forth five-game match, clinched with a 17-15 victory in the finale.
“What an exciting match, especially hitting over a tall Byron Bears front line of 6-foot-5, 5-11 and 5-10,” coach Lori Schwirtz said.
Byron took the first game 25-19, with GSL rallying to win the next two 25-23 and 25-18 before the Bears forced a tiebreaker with a 25-19 game four win.

Cross-Country teams sweep season opener

The Glencoe-Silver Lake cross-country teams got their seasons started in earnest in much the same way they did last year, on a damp morning at Baylor Regional Park in the annual “alumni meet.”
