More Panthers than ever are taking a shot at trap

It’s been a great spring so far for the Glencoe-Silver Lake trapshooting team. Numbers are up, both score-wise and as far as participation, and coach Doug Fegley could not be happier. 
“We’re really getting things on track,” he said. “Things are going real well.”
The Panthers are in the midst of their 2015 season. The squad competes at the Winthrop Game Protective League, and the clubhouse is fuller than ever this season.

Panthers split a pair in WCC play

A split of last week’s pair of games gave the Glencoe-Silver Lake baseball team an 8-3 record as it heads into Thursday’s Wright County Conference West tilt at Dassel-Cokato.

The Panthers opened their two game stretch in an unfortunate manner as host Litchfield rolled to a 15-6 win on Tuesday, April 28.
