  • Cyclones escape Glenwood with last-second free throw

    The Glenwood girls basketball team’s 44-43 loss to Harlan will go down as a game of missed opportunities.

    With just over 15 seconds left in the game, the Rams (2-1 overall, 0-1 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) had the ball in a 43-43 game against the state ranked Cyclones.

  • Glenwood boys can’t find touch in 71-42 loss

    Coming into their Hawkeye 10 Conference opener against state ranked No. 7 Harlan, Glenwood boys basketball coach Curt Schulte said his team would have to be sharp in every phase of the game to have a shot at the upset.

    On Friday, the Rams struggled shooting the ball, struggled at the free throw line and struggled to contain the Cyclones’ offensive penetration. In other words, the Rams were decidedly not sharp and it showed in a 71-42 loss to the Cyclones before a reporter-estimated 1,000 at the Glenwood gymnasium on Friday.
