GSL engineering students show off their hard work

Students from Glencoe-Silver Lake High School’s “Principles of Engineering” class had the chance to show off the fruits of their month’s labors when they demonstrated a number of material sorters to guests on Monday, March 30.
Four groups of students had spent the previous three weeks planning and building intricate sorters to separate metal marbles from wooden ones. The project was intended to create the type of sorting system that would separate differing items at a recycling plant.

Grievance, street funding, recycling topics at city’s personnel committee

The personnel and legislative committee of the Glencoe City Council held a brief meeting last Wednesday afternoon in the Glencoe City Center west conference room, and then went into closed session to discuss a Glencoe Police Federation grievance.
While nothing was made public on the police grievance, during the open session the committee members discussed support for a League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) resolution concerning transportation funding, and were given an update on the county’s upcoming takeover of the city’s recycling program.

Section champs return to the field

When we last saw the Glencoe-Silver Lake baseball team, the Panthers were putting the finishing touches on a 19-5 season by finishing third in the 2014 Class AA state tournament. 
It was GSL’s first trip to state in five years and the squad faces a difficult road in its quest to repeat as Section 2AA champions.

Conference champs out for even greater laurels

Returning the bulk of last year’s conference championship-winning squad, the Glencoe-Silver Lake softball team looks to be a strong bet to defend their initial Wright County West title and perhaps garner even greater laurels.
“We’ve got a great and experienced group of girls,” coach Steve Davis said. “They work very hard and make each other better.”
