  • Rams win 41-24 in ‘home’ opener

    PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. – Highway 34 bragging rights for southwest Iowa were settled Friday night in Nebraska.

    Yes, Nebraska.

    Forced to move its season-opener to Plattsmouth High School’s artificial turf because of a soggy surface at Ram Memorial Field, Glenwood held off pesky Red Oak, 41-24, in a non-district contest.

    The Rams raced to a 28-0 halftime lead and survived a valiant second-half comeback effort by a determined Tiger squad to secure the win.

  • Off and Running

    The Glenwood girls placed third and the boys fifth at the 40th annual Ram Invitational Cross Country Meet in Glenwood Lake Park Saturday.

    The Ram girls got a trio of top 10 finishes from Hayley Matthews (fifth), Natalie Shearer (seventh) and Jillian Finnegan (ninth) to rack up 74 team points.

    Harlan swept the boys and girls team titles. The Cyclone girls had five place winners among the top 12 runners while the boys placed three runners in the top four.

  • Knights tame Eagles early in 50-...

    WOODBINE - A lot of good, a little bit of bad.

    That’s how Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christiansen would describe his team’s 50-20 season-opening victory over Woodbine Friday in Eight-Man football.

    Christiansen saw “lots of good” from his starters, who played just a quarter and a half as the Knights mounted a 43-0 lead, before giving way to the reserves.

  • Rams’ season ends in regional...

    NORWALK - It was too much Taylor Good and too little offense for Glenwood in its Class 4, Region 7 semifinal on Saturday.

    Norwalk’s sophomore pitcher limited Glenwood to three singles, fanned nine and faced just four over the minimum in a 5-0 victory that ended the Rams’ season.

    “She was tough,” Glenwood coach Mark Starner said. “We only saw about five pitchers like her all year. We don’t see enough pitchers like her. She was tough on us all night.”

  • Fremont-Mills’ season ends in...

    TABOR - Essex plated five runs in the top of the ninth inning to edge Fremont-Mills 8-3 in Class 1A, Region 7 softball in Tabor last Wednesday.

    The Trojanns had rallied once before, scoring two runs in the top of the seventh to force extra innings after the Knights entered the frame with a 3-1 lead.

  • Glenwood baseball routs Storm...

    The Glenwood baseball team out-scored Storm Lake 28-5 in a pair of double-header victories Friday at A.C. Nuckolls Field.

    The Rams (20-9 overall, 13-6 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) plated seven runs in the first inning of a 13-0, five-inning victory in game one and then came back into the nightcap to smack 19 hits in a 15-5, five-inning win.
    Glenwood combined for 28 hits in the double-header.

    Nolan Robinson was 5-for-5 in the two games with  four RBIs. Brady Wheeler and Dru Little each recorded four hits and Corey Bertini three for Glenwood.

  • Hall of Fame Coach

    Tabor resident and 1970 Glenwood Community High School graduate Dixie (Detlef) Trask has been inducted into the New York State High School Softball Hall of Fame. She was among 18 inductees recognized by the New York State Sportswriters and Coaches Organization for Girls Sports during a June 21 ceremony at the Mudville Softball Complex in Herkimer, New York.

  • Glenwood Softball Sweeps Harlan...

    Glenwood swept a Hawkeye 10 Conference softball doubleheader from Harlan Thursday night, 10-2, 12-10.

    Lisa Nebel tossed a three-hitter for the Rams in the opener. She recorded four strikeouts and didn’t walk a batter in the victory.

    Glenwood jumped out to a 7-0 lead after three innings and never looked back.
    A trio of Rams had two hits in the game - Sara Ingoldsby, Bailey Starner and Ashley Hirt.

    Nebel and Molly Dean both drove home a pair of runs.

  • Rams Topple Creston, Drop Twin...

    The Glenwood varsity baseball team posted a 1-2 record last week, defeating Creston 3-1 on Tuesday night and dropping a pair of games to Harlan on Thursday by identical 7-3 margins.

    In the win over Creston, four Glenwood pitchers - Cob Baker, Brady Wheeler, Zak Mumm and Wyatt Schultz - teamed up to limit the Panthers to four hits. Cobb picked up the win, giving up just one hit in three innings of work.

  • Rams Punch Ticket To State

     

    Set pieces don’t get executed more perfectly.

    Scout Crow’s assist on a pitch perfect corner kick connected perfectly to Andy Staiert who headed in a goal to break a deadlocked 1-1 tie and give Glenwood the lead for good in a 3-1 Class 2A Substate championship victory over Harlan Saturday.

    For Staiert, the Rams’ top defensive sweeper, his second goal of the season couldn’t have come at a bigger moment.
