Panthers fall to Raiders in subsection semifinals

High hopes could not put the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team over the top of its matchup against Norwood Young America in the North subsection semifinals of the Section 2AA Tournament on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at New Prague High School.
The third-seeded Panthers came into the night hoping to pull off a similar result to last year’s upending of the Raiders on the very same court. However, the second-seeded Raiders had their revenge by ousting GSL in four sets and ending the Panthers’ season.

Panthers 13th at Class A meet

Making the program’s first appearance at state in 14 years, the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ cross-country team took 13th overall on a damp, brisk afternoon at St. Olaf College in Northfield on Saturday, Nov. 3.
“State was a great experience for all of the girls,” coach Josh Metcalf said. “A great way to end the season.”
The seven members of the Panthers’ squad that secured the team’s first state berth since 2004 by finishing as the runner-up in the Section 2A championship meet all competed on the course that winds around the trails to the north and west of the college.
