Fresh faces added to First Lutheran School staff

A new school year brings fresh faces to First Evangelical Lutheran School in Glencoe. The church welcomes two new additions to its school this year, fifth-grade teacher Luke Dahl and Director of Christian Education (DCE) intern Tori Kidd.
Dahl was born in Mankato but lived in many places in the Midwest during his childhood. He graduated from Concordia University in St. Paul. Before accepting his new position at First Lutheran, he taught in Howard Lake for 15 years.
He made the move to First Lutheran in search of new opportunities for growth.

Glencoe artist’s photos on display in arts council gallery

A religion. A life-long passion. A stress reliever. An energy booster. A way of preservation.  
For Glencoe resident Mary Mulenburg, her photography is all of these. Now she has the opportunity to share her photographs with others in the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council Gallery. Her photography will be on display in the Marshall exhibit through Oct. 30.
From a young age, Mulenburg always knew she wanted to be an artist. As a child she loved drawing and painting, but it wasn’t until she picked up a camera as a teenager that she found her true passion.

Panthers remain perfect at 4-0

A 42-21 defeat of visiting Holy Family Catholic on Friday, Sept. 11, gave the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team, ranked second in Class AAA, a perfect 4-0 record halfway through the regular season. Given the team’s spotless start, the possibility of heading into the postseason at 8-0 is becoming a very real prospect.

“The sky is the limit,” coach Scott Tschimperle said of running the regular-season table. “I think we can, if the kids don’t look ahead – but we have to be ready to play every game.”

Netters take a northern tour

It was another busy week for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ tennis team. The Panthers competed against a pair of Wright County Conference opponents mid-week and then took a trip north for a dual meet as well as a tournament appearance.

“We had great weather, good food and a nice hotel with a water park,” coach Robb DeCorsey said.

Unfortunately, the on-court results for GSL were not quite as pleasant as the fledgling squad struggled to find wins.

Volleyball suffers first loss, rebounds for fourth win

It was an up-and-down pair of games for the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team. The Panthers suffered their first loss of the season against a main rival, but bounced back to claim victory over another neighboring squad and carry a 4-1 record into Thursday’s home match against Litchfield.

GSL saw its perfect start come to an end on Tuesday, Sept. 8 at Hutchinson. The Panthers, who won each of their first three matches in three-game sweeps, had the tables turned on them in a Tigers sweep.
