Playoff time for softball

The postseason looms for the Glencoe-Silver Lake softball team, as the Panthers found out that they will travel to Watertown-Mayer for the Section 5AA opener on Friday afternoon.

GSL was handed the No. 5 seed for the 5AA East subsection after entering this week on a six-game losing streak. The Panthers came up short on all three of their games last week, falling 10-2 at Mound Westonka on Tuesday, May 9, and then losing at Dassel-Cokato and Norwood-Young America to close out the stretch.

Win streak comes to an end for baseball

Just as the Glencoe-Silver Lake baseball team hit the high point of its season, the Panthers suddenly stumbled a couple times last week.
GSL opened its most recent three-game stretch by winning its ninth game in a row in a 5-3 victory at Mound Westonka on Tuesday, May 9, that avenged an earlier-season loss to the White Hawks. 
However, the remainder of the stretch was not nearly as kind to the Panthers as the team suffered losses of 7-2 and 5-2 at Dassel-Cokato and Norwood-Young America, respectively, to close out the week.
