Lady Panthers clinch share of WCC West championship

With yet another three-game sweep, this time of Rockford, the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team clinched at least a share of the Wright County Conference West championship Monday night.

However, coach Lori Schwirtz had little time for any talk of splitting the crown with anyone this season – pointing instead to the one critical game remaining on the team’s schedule.

“We can win the title outright on Thursday,” she said. “We don’t want to share it this year.”
