  • Glenwood braves rain, mud for...

    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.

  • Ram volleyball falls in five on...

    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.

  • East Mills places third at...

    East Mills bounced back from a semifinal loss to sweep Fremont-Mills 25-15, 25-16, 26-24 for third place at the Corner Conference Volleyball Tournament Thursday in Tabor.

    The Wolverines (20-8 overall, 5-1 in the conference) played a complete match against the Knights (16-15 overall, 3-3 in the conference), hitting .313 as a team with 37 kills and digging up 51 balls on defense with 11 blocks.

  • Glenwood runs wild in 49-13 win

    For the second straight week Glenwood rushed for more than 400 yards and for the second straight week the Rams found themselves on the winning end of a lopsided Class 3A, District 7 clash.

    Glenwood scored the first 29 points of the game and dominated from the opening kick off with 462 yards rushing in a 49-13 victory over Creston Friday.

  • Wolverines’ get quick start...

    Nate Richardson returned the opening kick off for a touchdown and East Mills got off to the fast start it needed in a 36-6 victory over Essex in Eight-man, District 7 football on a rainy and wet night in Essex Friday.

    Richardson snagged the opening kickoff and raced 73 yards for the Wolverines first score.

    On the Trojans’ opening offensive possession they fumbled the ball into their own endzone. Essex recovered the fumble but the safety gave east Mills a 10-0 lead less than a minute into the game.

  • Glenwood girls top field at...

    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).

  • 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.”

  • Fremont-Mills 2-2 at home tourney

    Fremont-Mills won two matches and lost two matches at it’s own Knight Invitational Volleyball Tournament Saturday in Tabor.

    The Knights (11-8 overall, 2-3 in the Corner Conference) recorded a pair of wins over East Atchison 21-18, 21-9 and 22-20, 21-13 and dropped decisions to Griswold 21-17, 21-17 and Sidney 21-5, 21-5.

    Sophie Phillips led Fremont-Mills with 14 kills.

    Kendall Reed dished up 16 assists in the tournament.

  • Glenwood sweeps Denison in Hawk-...

    Glenwood swept Denison 26-24, 25-13, 25-19 to win its second straight Hawkeye 10 Conference home match last Tuesday.

    “We made a few adjustments but it worked out in our favor,” said Glenwood coach Chelsey Harvey.

    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’ comeback comes up short

    Glenwood’s comeback kids almost pulled off another second-half comeback Friday night, but the Rams came up three points short in a 17-14 setback to Harlan.
