  • No. 2 ranked Kuemper gets by Glenwood

    Hawkeye 10 Conference champions Kuemper Catholic traveled to Glenwood last Monday and left with a 25-15, 25-23, 25-16 victory over the Rams in Hawkeye 10 Conference volleyball.

    The Class 3A, No. 2 rated Knights (35-2 overall, 10-0) dominated the Rams (16-14 overall, 4-5 in the conference) at the net, recording 16 blocks and picking up 66 digs.

  • Tigers rally, end Knights’ season

    The loss ends the Knights’ season with a record of 16-17 overall and 3-4 in the Corner Conference. The toughest loss of the season is usually the last but even Malcom said the defeat was a tough one for her and her team.

  • Rams cap regular-season with 42-20 win

    Glenwood put an exclamation point on the regular season Friday night at Ram Memorial Field with a 42-20 victory over Adel-DeSoto-Minburn (ADM). The lopsided victory, which was not as close as the final score might indicate, sends the 8-1 Rams into the Class 3A state playoffs as the Class 3A, District 7 runner-up.

    There was little drama in Friday night’s regular season finale as the Rams scored on their first three offensive possessions to take control against outmanned ADM, a team that finished winless in district play.

  • Glenwood girls headed to state cross country

  • Knights get defensive in 41-6 win

  • Voice of the Rams

    Gordon Woodrow never planned on announcing football games in Glenwood.

    Sure, the Oakland native loved football but he was content announcing the school’s track meets every spring. That all changed in the fall of 1991 when Jim Stanley, the longtime public address voice of the Rams, gave up the job due to health reasons in the middle of the football season.

    And Woodrow was tapped to take over.

    Nearly three decades later, Woodrow is still at it.

    Although he admits, he still prefers calling track.

    In a letter submitted to The Opinion-Tribune, Ben Wiese, president of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 798, said members of the organization were “denied a place in the Glenwood Color Guard” and told “they could either march in the middle of parade or go home,” a claim adamantly disputed by parade organizers.

  • Wolverines’ get quick start against Trojans

    Nate Richardson returned the opening kick off for a touchdown and East Mills got off to the fast start it needed in a 36-6 victory over Essex in Eight-man, District 7 football on a rainy and wet night in Essex Friday.

    Richardson snagged the opening kickoff and raced 73 yards for the Wolverines first score.

    On the Trojans’ opening offensive possession they fumbled the ball into their own endzone. Essex recovered the fumble but the safety gave east Mills a 10-0 lead less than a minute into the game.
