Girls' tennis season comes to an end

The season came to a close for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ tennis team last week in the Section 2A individual tournament at Gustavus College in St. Peter.
GSL was represented in both singles and doubles play on Thursday, Oct. 11, recording one victory in bracket play.
The senior duo of Justine Helmbrecht and Kaitlyn Doolittle, seeded fifth, won their opening match 6-2, 6-3, over unseeded Ashlyn Doering/Payden Beran of Redwood Valley. Helmbrecht and Doolittle came up short in their follow-up, however, falling 6-4, 6-1, to fourth-seeded Anna Braun/Alyvia Behr of Jordan.

Girls' soccer goes out with flair

Following a winless regular season, the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ soccer team made some postseason noise before bowing out of the Section 2A Tournament last week.

A team that managed just two non-shootout goals over 14 games that preceded it, 18th-seeded GSL pounded four regulation scores past the Jaguars to win 4-3 over the 10th-seeded hosts.
