Netters move on to sections

It’s onto sections for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ tennis team. The Panthers played out their final Wright County Conference matches last week with a dual competition against Hutchinson as well as the conference tournament.

GSL dropped a 7-0 decision to the Tigers in their home finale on Tuesday, Sept. 29 before heading to the WCC tourney in Orono two days later.

The conference as a whole was not kind to the Panthers, as only the No. 3 doubles tandem of Marlaina Chelman and Katie Doolittle mustered up a victory against the difficult WCC field.

GSL now heads to the Section 2A Tournament as the No. 7 seed. The Panthers avoided having to compete in the “play-in” match between the eighth and ninth-seeded squads, but now faces second-seeded St. Peter.

The Saints, 13-4-4 on the season, host the Panthers at 4 p.m. Thursday at Gustavus Adolphus College. The sectional individual tournament is scheduled to begin on Thursday, Oct. 15, also at Gustavus Adolphus.
