The Boys of '52

Harry Truman was in the White House, TV was still in its infancy and the Glenwood boys basketball team was in the Iowa State Basketball Tournament for the first time.

The year was 1952.

Tuesday, the Rams make a historic return trip to state - taking on Williamsburg in the Class 3A quarterfinals at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

It's been so long since the Glenwood boys last played at state (63 years), the school can’t locate a trophy or a plaque from that season.
