  • Glenwood punches ticket to state

    Glenwood could not have picked a better time to turn in its most inspired performance of the season Friday night at Ram Memorial Field.

  • Title Town

    CLARINDA - One team was the repeat champion and the other won their first title in three decades.
    And they were both Glenwood.

    The Glenwood girls and boys cross country teams swept the Hawkeye 10 Conference Cross Country meet titles Thursday at Clarinda High School.

  • Voice of the Rams

    Gordon Woodrow never planned on announcing football games in Glenwood.

    Sure, the Oakland native loved football but he was content announcing the school’s track meets every spring. That all changed in the fall of 1991 when Jim Stanley, the longtime public address voice of the Rams, gave up the job due to health reasons in the middle of the football season.

    And Woodrow was tapped to take over.

    Nearly three decades later, Woodrow is still at it.

    Although he admits, he still prefers calling track.

  • Knights get defensive in 41-6 win

    TABOR - Woodbine won the opening coin toss in Tabor Friday.

    And that was the end of the first half bright spots for the visitors as Fremont-Mills recorded five quarterback sacks and held the Tigers to six yards rushing while getting out to a 38-0 halftime lead en route to a 41-6 victory.

  • 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).
