  • Ram girls complete indoor season

    At the Dickinson Relays at the University of Northern Iowa, the Glenwood girls track team showed steady improvement, said coach Brad Rasmussen.

    “Many personal bests were set,” said Rasmussen of the meet, the team’s third indoor meet to open the season. “The girls needs to stay focused on their goals and the goals of the team.”

    Brooke Peckham had the Rams’ top individual finish, placing 37th in the 3000-meter run in 12:09.06.

    The Rams’ 4x800-meter relay team placed 33rd with a time of 2:38.53.

  • Artist sees positives in 1-2 start

    Most coaches would have a hard time finding positives in dropping back-to-back games by a combined score of 7-4.

    The Glenwood boys soccer coach is not one of those coaches, after his team dropped a 5-3 decision to Davenport Assumption and a 2-1 shootout loss to Cedar Rapids Xavier at the Norwalk Invitational on Saturday.

  • Rams dominant at Clarinda

    The cold weather and a postponment didn't help the times but Glenwood toys track coach Mark Starner was pleased with his team's performance at its first outdoor meet of the year.

    The Rams racked up 104 points for first place at the Hawkeye 10 Southern Division Meet on Thursday in Clarinda. After inclement weather delayed the meet from Tuesday to Thursday, scheduling conflicts allowed just three conference teams to attend.

    Clarinda was second at the meet with 41 points and Red third with 37.

  • Rams fourth at Clarinda

    The Glenwood boys track team’s four second place finishes and five second place finishes weren’t quite enough as Atlantic ran away with the team title at the Clarinda Cardinal Relays on Thursday.

    Atlantic scored 125 points to Harlan’s 101. Glenwood finished fourth at the meet with 94 team points, just two points behind third place Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson.

    The weather, Glenwood coach Mark Starner, said played a key role in his team's fourth place finish.

    Katie Larsen in the 3,000 and Katie Staiert in the 800-meters both earned second place medals along with the Rams 4x800-meter relay team.

    Lydia Bienlien earned a pair of medals in the long jump and the 100-meter dash.

  • Tigers roll to 8-1 win over Rams

    Grant Nikseresht won the opening singles match for the Glenwood boys tennis team, and that was it as Red Oak won the five singles matches and swept the doubles matches for an 8-1 Hawkeye 10 Conference tennis victory last Monday.

    Nikseresht led wire-to-wire in his 10-6 victory over Eduardo Sokolnik, a foreign exchange student from Brazil.

  • Corning narrowly escapes

    Corning edged Glenwood 5-4 in a non-confernce girls tennis dual last Wednesday.

  • City Cools To County Policing Plan

    Upon further review, the Glenwood City Council Public Safety Committee has concluded that dissolving its police department and having Mills County deputies police the streets of Glenwood wouldn’t be in the best interest of city residents. The committee has elected not to endorse a proposal from Mills County Sheriff Eugene Goos that would have his deputies take over policing duties within the city limits.

    The matter was discussed at a special meeting of the public safety committee Tuesday, April 7, at City Hall.
