Win streak comes to an end for baseball

Just as the Glencoe-Silver Lake baseball team hit the high point of its season, the Panthers suddenly stumbled a couple times last week.
GSL opened its most recent three-game stretch by winning its ninth game in a row in a 5-3 victory at Mound Westonka on Tuesday, May 9, that avenged an earlier-season loss to the White Hawks. 
However, the remainder of the stretch was not nearly as kind to the Panthers as the team suffered losses of 7-2 and 5-2 at Dassel-Cokato and Norwood-Young America, respectively, to close out the week.
The setbacks left GSL with a 12-4 overall record, 8-2 in the Wright County Conference West and 8-1 in games against fellow Section 5AA teams. The Panthers opened this week still leading the WCC West by one-half game over New London-Spicer. GSL hosts the Wildcats in a doubleheader on Thursday at Vollmer Field.
Peyton Sell tossed a complete-game six-hitter in the Panthers’ win over Mound Westonka. Korey Johnson drove in three runs and scored once on a 3-for-4 day at the plate. Mitch Boesche also had three hits and one RBI, while Taylor Schauer and Alex Troska each had two hits and one run scored.
