  • East Mills offense struggles in loss

    MALVERN - East Mills scored a season-low two first-quarter points and that was just one of the offensive low points for the Wolverines in a 32-26 loss to Griswold Friday in a non-conference boys basketball showdown.

    The Wolverines (5-2 overall, 5-1 in the Corner Conference) 26 points were a season-low – their fewest in a game since a 45-28 loss to Underwood Dec. 2, 2010 – as were their 24 field goal attempts, 11 field goal makes and six free throw attempts. They also had a season-high 19 turnovers in a rough-and-tumble post-Christmas break loss.

  • Glenwood falls at Red Oak, 50-46

    RED OAK – Micayla Taylor’s pair of three pointers in the final three minutes lifted Red Oak to a 50-46 come-from-behind victory over Glenwood in Hawkeye 10 Conference girls basketball Friday.

    Taylor, a senior guard, proved to be the difference in the game thanks to her two three-pointers coming from the exact same spot at the top of the key just a minute apart. Taylor had a season-high 10 points for the night.

  • Rams score win on road

    RED OAK - The Glenwood boys basketball team opened 2015 with a 58-45 win over Red Oak Friday in Hawkeye 10 Conference play.

    The win snapped a two-game losing skid for the Rams (3-4 overall, 2-4 in Hawkeye 10 Conference).

    “It’s huge,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte after the game. “You go on break for two weeks and it’s important you come in that first game and get that win and get some momentum and get some confidence going into Tuesday’s game against Clarinda.”

  • The Green Spot

    By Daisy Hutzell-Rodman

    Glenwood native Jessica (Kamish) Ellis’ business, The Green Spot in Omaha, is a labor of love.

    The natural pet food business came easily to Ellis.

    “Her first words were not mama or dada, they were doggie, doggie, doggie,” said her mother, Dr. Jacque Young of Glenwood.

    That natural instinct for pets, and a head for business, was recognized this past May, when the young company was awarded the Small Business Association’s Small Business of the Year Award for Nebraska’s Second District.
