  • Tigers rally, end Knights’ season

    TABOR - Fremont-Mills started strong but could never put Griswold away as the Tigers rallied for a two set deficit to win 17-25, 24-26, 25-22, 25-22, 15-8 in the Class 1A, Region 2 opening round in Tabor last Tuesday.

    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

    ATLANTIC - Glenwood girls cross country coach Jeff Janssen felt confident if his team could place his top five runners among the top 25 places, they’d have a good shot at making state.

    The Rams did just that – and better.

    “We almost had seven girls reach that benchmark,” Janssen said.

  • Knights get defensive in 41-6 win

    TABOR - Woodbine won the opening coin toss in Tabor Friday.

  • 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.

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

  • Glenwood runs wild in 49-13 win

    For the second straight week Glenwood rushed for more than 400 yards and for the second straight week the Rams found themselves on the winning end of a lopsided Class 3A, District 7 clash.
