Panthers dominate football opener at Foley

It wasn’t a traditional way to begin the season, but the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team made the most out of its trip north to Foley.
Using a couple of time-tested recipes for success, the Panthers used a stout defense and a punishing running game to cruise to a 42-17 victory against their new East Central District rivals.
Despite some opening-game hiccups and jitters, GSL fared well in saying goodbye to the old Wright County Conference West and marching headlong into the new district alignment.

Spikers fall twice at home

The Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team did not find home cooking to its liking last week, falling to visiting Norwood Young America and Hutchinson in midweek games before splitting a quartet of contests at Eden Prairie High School on Saturday, Sept. 2.
NYA swept the host Panthers in three games (15-25, 21-25, 20-25) on Tuesday, Aug. 31, to drop GSL to 1-1 on the season.
Setter Lexi Hansch led the hosts with 27 assists, while middle hitter Rhyan Herrmann paced her squad with 12 kills, as did libero Maren Roepke with 21 digs.

Cross-country teams looking for top sectional finishes

They may get there by different paths, but there is at least one shared goal for both the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ and boys’ cross-country teams: a high finish at the Section 2A meet in late October.
How they get there might differ a bit, however.
While the girls’ team returns its lone state qualifier from last year in Malayh Metcalf, the boys’ team graduated its two state runners (Michael Meyer and Austin Schroepfer) last spring.
Boys’ head coach Jeff Delwiche said the boys’ team, which welcomes four new members will be a “pack running team” this fall.

New-look Panthers have familiar goals

There’s a different look to the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team – and it goes far beyond the squad’s brand-new uniforms.
Thirteen new players fill out this season’s varsity roster, with only six returnees – Lexi Hansch, McKenna Monahan, Mickalyn Frahm, Rhyan Herrmann, Olivia Lemke and Kasidy Cacka – as the team looks to win a fourth-consecutive Wright County Conference West title.
“Practices are looking well, but we have a lot to work on and only hope to better our performance as the season goes on,” coach Lori Schwirtz said.
