Home run

Panthers rolling on the basepaths

It was quite a week for the Glencoe-Silver Lake baseball team as the Panthers socked away a trio of impressive victories.
GSL remained in the thick of the Wright County Conference West race by topping three circuit opponents in both intricate and dominant manner. The Panthers sandwiched a 7-0 blanking of Orono with a pair of close victories – 2-1 at Mound Westonka and 8-5 at Holy Family Catholic.

Bruins remain undefeated

The Brownton Bruins took advantage of a struggling New Germany bullpen Sunday afternoon for a 19-5 win over the Dutchmen in seven innings.
Dutchmen starter Steve Mielke and relievers Brian Meyer and Adam Lehrke gave up a total of 15 earned runs on 22 hits.
The first two innings didn’t offer much indication of the coming blow-out.

Blue Jays bash St. Boni

The Plato Blue Jays amateur baseball team wanted to get its season off on the right foot. Mission accomplished. 
With an 11-0 blanking of host St. Bonifacious, the Blue Jays looked every bit the part of a force to be reckoned with this summer – even if many of the team regulars had not yet re-joined the ranks.
“We didn’t have our full team,” manager Adam Dammann said. “The nice thing was, we had a lot of younger newcomers doing the job.”
