  • Rams headed to state

    ATLANTIC - It has been 63 years since Glenwood last played in the Iowa State Basketball Tournament.

  • Knight comeback comes up short...

    DES MOINES - A first half of 29 percent shooting and a near eight minute scoring drought while getting down 33-22 would be enough to dampen almost any coach’s mood.

    Not Fremont-Mills Coach Rod Williams.

    “There’s no quit in these kids. I knew, at halftime, I had no doubt, this game would be decided in the last possession,” Williams said after the game.

    Williams was right.

  • Rams’ Malcom, Sherry earn state...

  • Knights headed to state...

    RED OAK – As Adair-Casey clawed back in the fourth quarter of the Class 1A, Region 8 final Monday night, Fremont-Mills guard Macy Williams knew her team needed to do something to keep their state tournament dreams alive.

    “They were taking away our ball movement outside the three-point line, so I saw the lane open and tried to attack as much as possible and get them in foul trouble,” Macy Williams said.
    Williams did plenty of attacking in the fourth quarter.
