Sibley East will face #6 seed Glencoe-Silver Lake in quarterfinal action. That tilt is scheduled for Thursday, October 25th at Gaylord. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m.

“I am pleasantly surprised to receive the #3 seed, and am happy for our players and fans to get a home game,” Sibley East head coach Chip Wolverton said. “We now need to defend our home court and prove we are worthy of that seed by playing hard against an improved GSL team.”
