  • Rams 0-4 at Ankeny tournament

    The Glenwood softball team dropped four games last weekend at the Ankeny Softball Invitational.

    The Rams (11-8 overall, 9-6 in the conference) struggled to put runs on the board in the tournament that featured stiff competition but head coach Tom Horton thinks the competition can help his team heading into the post-season.

  • Glenwood falls on road at S.C....

    Sioux City East built a 7-1 lead after four innings to turn away Glenwood in a non-conference baseball Friday in Sioux City.

    The Rams (11-8 overall, 9-6 in the conference) found themselves down 3-0 after an inning and 7-1 after four before trimming the lead to 7-5 with a four run fifth. But the Black Raiders responded with three runs in the bottom of the frame to extend their lead.

  • Glynn inducted into Iowa Senior...

    Nothing was going to stop Kay Glynn from attending this year’s Iowa Senior Games.
    Certainly not surgery.

    Glynn wasn’t about to let previous surgeries keep her out of competing at the games. In 2013, Glynn had her hip resurfaced. A longtime osteoarthritis sufferer in her hip, Glynn got the surgery done late in the summer to alleviate the pain. Last year, Glynn tore her ACL, requiring another surgery.

    “It was back to surgery and I had to wait for another six months,” she said.

    Stanton scored late, but it wasn’t enough as the Knights completed the sweep.
    Brock Hansen went 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Lane Goodman meanwhile went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBIs.

  • Rams fall to St. Albert, 14-10

    Council Bluffs St. Albert plated seven runs in the final two innings to erase a three run deficit and escape Glenwood with a 14-10 Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball victory Friday.

  • Rams drop two at Treynor tourney

    Glenwood fielding miscues led to a combined 12 unearned runs as the Rams dropped a pair of games at the Treynor Softball Invitational Saturday.

    The Rams (11-9 overall, 6-6 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference)

    "Unfortunately, we really struggled on defense today," said Glenwood coach Tom Horton.

    Jacy Embray was credited with the game one loss after scattering four hits and one earned run in four innings.

  • Fremont-Mills drops two at...

    The Fremont-Mills offense struggled in a pair of losses at the Griswold Softball Tournament on Saturday.

    The Knights (6-8 overall, 3-0 in the Corner Conference) dropped its opener 6-3 to Southwest Valley and then were shutout 10-0 by Exira in the capper.

    In the two games combined, the Knights recorded five hits, just one going for extra bases.

    Joni Laughlin took the loss to Southwest Valley, allowing three hits and no earned runs while striking out four.

  • Football playoff qualifiers will...

    Making the state football playoffs just got a little harder.

    Beginning with the 2016 season, each of Iowa’s six football classes will advance 16 teams to the state football playoffs, according to a change announced last week by the Iowa High School Athletic Association Board of Control. The change means a reduction from 32 teams who currently qualify for the postseason in each class.

    The schedules for this fall and the 2015 regular season and playoffs remain unchanged.

  • Glenwood middle schooler...

    You might say Houston Stephens was born to be a rodeo star.

    First, there’s the 12-year-old’s name, Houston.

    “I don’t really remember thinking anything that particular on his name, but yeah, it is a cowboy name,” said Brad Stephen’s, Houston’s dad.

    Then there’s 2 – the age this Glenwood Middle School sixth grader first got on a horse – and 5 – the first time he competed in a rodeo.

  • Ram bats go quiet in 10-0 loss...

    Sioux City East plated four runs in the first and six more in the sixth in a 10-0 shutout of Glenwood in non-conference softball last Wednesday.

    The Rams (10-4 overall, 6-2 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) struggled to generate much offense in just their second shutout loss of the season.

    “It was a quiet night for us at the plate and two big innings for East did us in,” said Glenwood coach Tom Horton.

    Jacy Embray led the Rams with two hits. Sara Ingoldsby, Molly Dean and Baily Rumery added hits.
