Panthers settle for split

Despite being upended in one of its two road games last week, the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ basketball team remained in the thick of the hunt for both a top finish in the Wright County Conference West as well as a No. 1 seed for the upcoming Section 2AA Tournament.
The Panthers entered this week at 13-5 overall and 4-2 in the WCC West after claiming a lopsided win at Dassel-Cokato on Tuesday, Jan. 27, followed by a disappointing loss at New London-Spicer three nights later.

With one of their top players, Maddie Monahan, dealing with the flu bug, the Panthers fortunes turned for the worse as the young squad fell from the top of the Wright County Conference West standings.
