The Glenwood girls got 20 points from Grace Newman and 13 from Hailey Darrow in a 52-33 victory over Red Oak on Friday.
The Rams (9-5 overall, 7-2 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) led throughout the game before pulling away in the fourth quarter.
“We had some good stops, we rebounded well and we made shots,” Glenwood coach Barry Loeffelbein said. “Everybody seemed to knock down a shot in that run.”
Glenwood out-scored Creston 32-23 after halftime in a 53-39 Hawkeye 10 Conference win on Friday.
The Rams’ Grace Newman scored a season-high 28 points to lead all scorers.
“She was our offensive catalyst,” said Loeffelbien of Newman’s performance against the Panthers. “She hit some threes but she also attacked the basket and finished strong.”
The Glenwood girls led 11-7 after a quarter but the Rams could muster just 19 points over the final three quarters in a 43-30 loss to Harlan last Monday.
