Lady Panthers take second at Heritage Christian tourney

The Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team entered Homecoming week with a 10-3 overall record after finishing second at the Heritage Christian Tournament in Maple Grove last weekend.

After a four-game defeat of Wright County Conference opponent Litchfield on Thursday, Sept. 17, the Panthers went 5-2 in tournament play over the next two days.

The Panthers’ lone losses were to the tournament hosts, who are 14-0 on the season and ranked fifth in Class A.

“I thought we played very well in our tournament and it was awesome to be in the championship,” outside hitter Cortney Konen said. “I think we struggled the first time around when we played Heritage but we showed everyone what we were really made of when we met them in the championship game even though we did not get the win.”

After falling in two-straight games (20-25, 21-25) the first time GSL met Heritage in an 8 a.m. Saturday morning start, the Panthers gave the Eagles a much sterner fight in the title match (21-25, 25-14, 6-15) before settling for second place.
