  • The Tragic Death of Kadie Tafta

  • Wolverines topple C-A-M in shootout

    A midweek overhaul to the offense and a recent roster addition came up big for East Mills in a wild 57-56 Eight-man, District 7 victory over C-A-M Friday in Malvern.

    The Wolverines, who scored just 32 points combined in their 0-3 start, eclipsed that total midway through the first quarter against the Cougars (3-2). The offensive explosion was a result of a change in the offense East Mills coach Kevin Schafer instituted at Monday’s practice.

    “I think we started with some nervous energy,” said Glenwood volleyball coach Chelsey Harvey of her team’s first set loss that saw them commit five service errors and look out of synch.

  • Glenwood rallies once again for road win

    A week after rallying from a double-digit deficit in the second half, the Glenwood football team did it again Friday.
