Girls' hoops enters playoffs as No. 2 seed in 2AA North

An 18-8 regular season in the books, the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ basketball team turned its attention to the postseason this week.
The Panthers put the final touches on a runner-up finish in the Wright County Conference West by closing out season sweeps against Mound Westonka and Rockford last week.
GSL held off a challenge by the upset-minded White Hawks on Tuesday, Feb. 20, eking by the visitors 71-68.
Guards Miah and Mac Monahan scored 19 and 14 points, respectively, in the win. Both players logged five rebounds, with Mac garnering nine assists and Miah four.
Forward Zoe Christensen led the hosts with six rebounds and three steals to go with her six points, while frontcourt mate Mickalyn Frahm posted eight points and five rebounds.
The Panthers followed up that close win with another, coasting to a 60-53 win over the Rockets in the regular-season finale on Friday, Feb. 23.
GSL led 38-27 at halftime after claiming its first double-digit lead of the game with three minutes left in the opening half, but Rockford kept up the pressure until the end to lose by just seven points after falling by 29 points on its home court on Jan. 26.
Mac Monahan led all scorers with 26 points, while Miah Monahan and guard Olivia Lemke each scored 12 points.
The wins gave the Panthers a final WCC West record of 11-3, two games behind conference champion Watertown-Mayer.
GSL opened the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the Section 2AA North subsection bracket and hosted seventh-seeded Belle Plaine on Tuesday, Feb. 27, after the Chronicle went to press.
Barring an upset, the Panthers’ second-round contest is scheduled for Friday at Prior Lake High School, with a subsection final slated for Tuesday at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
