Track and field teams open in Mankato

Safely tucked away indoors as winter attempted to hold on outside, the Glencoe-Silver Lake boys’ and girls’ track and field teams were able to successfully commence their season on Thursday, April 7, at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
It was a gripping beginning to the 2016 campaign for both squads, with the boys finishing in a first-place tie with Mankato Loyola/Cleveland and the girls finishing in second, just one point behind Waterville-Elysian-Morristown.

Now, it is just a matter of whether hard work will pay off. The team’s season began with a second-place finish at Mankato last week. But, the coach said that before we know it, the season will be over.
