  • Ram volleyball falls in five on road at Creston

    Creston handed Glenwood it’s third straight Hawkeye 10 Conference loss with a 25-22, 20-25, 25-18, 21-25, 8-15 road defeat Thursday in Creston.

    The Rams (12-11 overall, 4-4 in the conference) were playing without their top libero, Jaeda Wilson, who is done for the year with a stress fracture in her foot. Coach Chelsey Harvey juggled her lineup against the Panthers, sliding do-everything Sierra Stouder into that libero role with Erin Stanley moving up the front row in Stouder’s former spot. Harvey said she thought the new line up looked good, despite the loss.

  • Glenwood braves rain, mud for runner up finish in Atlantic course in runner up finish

    ATLANTIC - On a cold, rainy evening on a muddy course in Atlantic, the Glenwood girls battled the elements and a stacked field of 17 other teams to take home second place at the Atlantic Cross Country Invitational Thursday.

    In a steady downpour that made for such a muddy track several teams pulled out of the meet – including the Glenwood boys runners – the Rams showed a lot of fight even if the runner up finish to Class 3A No. 8 ranked Dallas Center-Grimes did snap their four meet win streak.

    The Rams (11-7 overall, 3-1 in the conference), didn’t light up the scoresheet with 21 kills on .097 hitting, but dominated defensively in the match with 42 digs as a team.

  • Rams trample Denison

    DENISON - Glenwood rushed for a season-high 390 yards and scored the game’s first 31 points in a 52-14 victory on the road at Denison Friday.

    “This was our most complete game,” said Glenwood coach Cory Faust. “I thought we were pretty solid in all three phases for the most part. We’ve been really struggling on offense, especially in the first half of games. So I thought it was big we forced a turnover on their second possession and we were able to punch it in. That kind of got the monkey off our backs.”

  • Glenwood girls top field at Harlan meet

    HARLAN - For the second time in three days, the Glenwood girls came out on top.

    After Tuesday’s title at the Creston Invitational, the Rams bested the field at the Harlan Cross Country Invitational Thursday to take home another meet championship.

    The Rams were led by Lacey Jackson’s seventh place finish. Jackson was followed closely by teammates Kate Kaufman (eighth), Aubrey McIntyre (ninth) and Katelyn Malcom (12th).

  • East Mills runner-up at Mount Ayr

    In the tournament semifinals, East Mills edged the host Raiders 25-22, 26-24.  

    “We stayed focused and on the attack throughout the match, and pulled it together to move on to the championship,” said East Mills coach Connie Blank.

  • 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.

  • Rams rally from first set loss to down Fillies

    “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.

    “It was our first home match and we really wanted this win and we got antsy. I thought we might be. We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy win with Shenandoah taking out Harlan last week.”
