    The Glenwood girls basketball team used it’s full-court press to build a 19-2 first quarter lead and never looked back in a 64-17 season-opening victory over Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson last Tuesday.

    The Rams’ trapping, full-court pressure forced the Yellowjackets to turn the ball over seven times and use two timeouts to regroup in the first quarter alone.

    “That gave us a cushion to start with and then we got into a pretty good rhythm scoring after that,” said Glenwood coach Barry Loeffelbein.
