Cross country squads finish 10th at invite

The Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ and girls’ cross country teams took to the Montgomery National Golf Club for their second meet of the season on Thursday, Sept. 10, running in the Gerry Smith Invitational. The Panther boys took 10th among 25 teams, with the GSL girls also coming in 10th amidst their 22-team race.

Volleyball suffers first loss, rebounds for fourth win

It was an up-and-down pair of games for the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team. The Panthers suffered their first loss of the season against a main rival, but bounced back to claim victory over another neighboring squad and carry a 4-1 record into Thursday’s home match against Litchfield.

GSL saw its perfect start come to an end on Tuesday, Sept. 8 at Hutchinson. The Panthers, who won each of their first three matches in three-game sweeps, had the tables turned on them in a Tigers sweep.

Netters take a northern tour

It was another busy week for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ tennis team. The Panthers competed against a pair of Wright County Conference opponents mid-week and then took a trip north for a dual meet as well as a tournament appearance.

“We had great weather, good food and a nice hotel with a water park,” coach Robb DeCorsey said.

Unfortunately, the on-court results for GSL were not quite as pleasant as the fledgling squad struggled to find wins.

Panthers remain perfect at 4-0

A 42-21 defeat of visiting Holy Family Catholic on Friday, Sept. 11, gave the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team, ranked second in Class AAA, a perfect 4-0 record halfway through the regular season. Given the team’s spotless start, the possibility of heading into the postseason at 8-0 is becoming a very real prospect.

“The sky is the limit,” coach Scott Tschimperle said of running the regular-season table. “I think we can, if the kids don’t look ahead – but we have to be ready to play every game.”

President orders paid sick leave

President Barack Obama used Labor Day as a platform to push his latest executive action: ordering companies that do business with the government to provide paid sick leave for their employees.
We very much favor paid sick leave for employees — it’s hardship enough to have to deal with health-care costs these days. Having to take unpaid leave to deal with health issues is just another hardship, especially for those of middle and low incomes.
