  • Glenwood fourth at state tennis

    DES MOINES - The Glenwood boys tennis team’s historic undefeated season came to an end in the Class 1A state tournament semifinals at the Waveland Tennis Complex in Des Moines last Tuesday.

    The Rams, who entered with a perfect 13-0 dual record, dropped their semifinal match to LeMars 5-0 and then fell 5-0 to Grinnell in the consolation round to finish fourth.

    Glenwood coach Kevin Tucker said his team was disappointed in the finish, but not in the heights they reached this season.

  • Titans get by Rams 2-0 in...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Council Bluffs Lewis Central dominated possession and scored two first half goals to end Glenwood’s season 2-0 in the girls Class 2A, Region 2 semifinals last Tuesday in Council Bluffs.

    Much like its 3-0 win May 13 over the Rams, the Titans got a quick lead, controlled the ball and never let Glenwood find its offensive rhythm.

  • Ram softball takes two from...

    The Glenwood softball team got two complete-game pitching performances and some clutch hitting in a Hawkeye 10 Conference double-header sweep of Kuemper Catholic Thursday.

    The Rams (5-1 overall, 4-1 in the conference) won game one 4-1 and then rallied in game two for a 6-5 victory in extra-innings.

    Game one starter Lyndie Van Ness dominated the Knights’ bats, striking out five, scattering five hits and allowing just one earned run in the compete-game victory.

  • Glenwood drops pair to Kuemper...

    Glenwood recorded 16 hits combined in the two games but could never string together a sustained rally in a pair of losses to Kuemper Catholic in a Hawkeye 10 Conference double-header Thursday.

    The Rams (2-4 overall, 0-3 in the conference) got down early and despite a seventh inning rally to trim the gap dropped game one 7-4. The Knights won the nightcap 5-3 to compete the sweep.

  • Rhodes hard work pays off with...

    Kobe Rhodes first picked up a golf club when he was 4 years old.

    As a youngster, he played in some youth tournaments, hit the ball around the links and never putting much time or effort into his time on the course.

    At age 14, Rhodes got serious – and his game seriously improved.

  • Rams down Harlan, head to...

    The Glenwood girls soccer team scored three goals in the opening 11 minutes of the second half in a 5-0 victory over Harlan in Class 2A, Region 2 soccer Friday.

    The first half ended in a scoreless tie before a few halftime adjustments helped Glenwood pull away in the second half.

    “We had a lot of shots in the first half but were having a hard time not shooting in right at the goalie,” said Glenwood coach Amy Benson.  “We talked about hitting low and hard shots during halftime to try and beat her height since she was tall.”

  • Glenwood off to 2-1 start on...

    The Glenwood baseball team got a strong outing from starting pitcher Cole Loeffelbein and smacked 13 hits at the plate in a 6-1 road victory at Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson Friday.

    Loeffelbein threw four solid innings, allowed no earned runs and just one hit to record the win.

    Glenwood coach Kurt Schultz said his team’s strong hitting was nicely balanced by a good defensive effort.

    WATERLOO - Neither of Glenwood’s two doubles teams that reached the Iowa State Tennis Doubles and Singles Tournament are coming home with medals.

    But both duos that reached state are coming home with something valuable:
    Experience.

  • Rams first, second at Hawkeye 10...

    For one team, it was another step, another accomplishment in a season that has been filled with them.

    For another team, a long streak ended without a trophy.

    It was a range of emotions for the boys and girls Glenwood track teams following the Hawkeye-10 conference meet. The girls, who have had a dominant season that has seen many wins, walked away as conference champions.
