Panthers fall in subsection semifinals

 The 2016 season came to a close earlier than the Glencoe-Silver Lake volleyball team would have liked, as the Panthers lost in four games (20-25, 25-23, 20-25, 25-15) to Southwest Christian in the Section 2AA North subsection semifinals.
In a mild upset, the third-seeded Stars emerged from a tightly-contested first three games to streak away in game four and take the match 3-1.
SWC took the initial lead in three of the four games, though GSL battled back to take at least a brief lead in all four.
The Stars outlasted the Panthers in the first and third game, powering to late leads after both games teetered back and forth through the early and middle points.
GSL’s lone victory came in the second game after both squads saw advantages come and go.
