Volleyball team rebounds from royal setback

After a tough loss at conference foe Watertown-Mayer, the GSL volleyball team enjoyed success against Tri-City United and a field of battle-tested small schools over the weekend.
Glencoe-Silver Lake roared through pool play Saturday in Montgomery and defeated the host Titans in the semifinal round before beating Central Minnesota Christian. After the loss to the Royals the previous Thursday evening, the Panthers are now on a five-match winning streak. It improves the Panthers’ overall record to 11-7. They are 5-1 against section foes, 1-2 against teams in the Wright County Conference-West.

Cross-country girls take third; boys take seventh at D.C. Invite

GSL’s Connor Hallaway, a sophomore, and Kendall Guerrero were the top runners for the GSL boys and girls. Hallaway posted a time of 17 minutes and 46 seconds, earning him fourth place overall among the boys, and Guerrero finished in 21 minutes and 18 seconds, securing fifth place overall among the girls.

Gridiron rally comes up short

After a good week of practice, the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team felt it had a good handle on what to expect from Dassel-Cokato Friday night. The Chargers had a few surprises in store for the visiting Panthers.
But Dassel-Cokato waited for the game with the Panthers to unveil a series of running option plays and a hook-and-ladder play neither the Panthers or any of its opponents had seen. The Chargers used the surprises to accumulate important yardage, including a pair of touchdowns in their 28-21 overtime victory over GSL Friday night, Sept. 27.

Despite their best efforts, the Panthers’ tennis team couldn’t get their footing against New London-Spicer, unable to win a set against their conference foes. Two days later, the Panthers struggled against Annandale, Mound-Westonka, Litchfield and the Wildcats, unable to force a third set in any match.

Waconia tops GSL girls’ soccer

Team speed seemed to be the decisive difference between the GSL girls’ soccer team and Waconia Thursday night at Stevens Seminary Stadium.
Despite the Panthers’ best efforts, they had trouble keeping pace with the Wildcats. Using speed and skills, the Wildcats built a 4-0 lead at intermission and added two more goals early in the second half for the 6-0 victory Sept. 26.
