    Nate Mohr scored 19 points and Christian Stanislav 17 as Glenwood improved to 2-0 on the season with a 71-32 victory over Creston in boys Hawkeye 10 Conference basketball Friday in Creston.

    The Rams, who have topped 70 points in both wins this season, ran out to a 20-7 first quarter lead then blew the game open out-scoring the Panthers 28-5 in the third quarter.

  • Rams can’t hold on in season-...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - The Glenwood girls led by as many as 10 in the first half but couldn’t put a scrappy Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson away in a 48-42 season-opening loss last Tuesday in Council Bluffs.

    The Rams led for most of three and a half quarters before the Yellowjackets put together a 8-0 fourth quarter run to take the lead for good.

    Glenwood coach Katy Bowen said felt she felt like this victory slipped through her team’s fingers.

  • Knights’ Hontz named District 7...

  • Nightmare ending for Knights

    CEDAR FALLS - Remsen St. Mary’s seemed to have all the answers and all Fremont-Mills had was questions.

    The undefeated Hawks answered the Knights’ offense with a stingy defense that pitched a first half shutout and then and had all the right calls offensively to sprint out to a 30-0 lead en route to a 51-6 victory over the Knights in the Eight-man semifinals at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls Thursday.

  • Janesville too much for...

    The good news: East Mills got better as the match went on.

    The bad news: So did Janesville.

    The Wolverines, making their first state tournament appearance, opened their quarterfinal match against top ranked, two-time defending state champion Janesville, were jittery, coach Connie Blank said.

    “We finally got our bearings and settled down after that first set and started improving and by the third set, we played much better,” Blank said. “I think we had to get some nerves out. Janesville is just a very, very good team.”

  • Knights charge into Dome

    For a few brief seconds, Fremont-Mills was in danger of its third straight failure on fourth down in as many first half possessions.

    Then they weren’t.

    Trailing 3-0 midway through the second quarter, quarterback Mason Vanatta scrambled to his right on a fourth-and-8 at the 40 yard line and found Connor Alley for a 22-yard gain. On the very next play the Knights found the endzone and all the momentum they would need in a dominating 35-9 victory over previously unbeaten Sidney in the Eight-man quarterfinals Friday.

  • Wolverines win district, will...

    TABOR - East Mills volleyball advanced to state for the first time in school history with a 25-16, 25-14, 25-19 sweep of Essex in the Class1A, Region 2 finals last Tuesday in Tabor.

    “We told them, ‘you’ve got to communicate every play,’” East Mills head coach Connie Viner-Blank said. “They did. This was the cherry on the top. It’s excellent timing to be playing our best volleyball right now. The whole team played so great together. Tonight was electric.”

  • Glenwood’s season ends in...

    SERGEANT BLUFF - Seeking its first state tournament berth in school history, the Glenwood volleyball team got a good look at what a state level team looks like.

    Unfortunately for the Rams that team was Sergeant Bluff-Luton.

    The state ranked No. 4 Warriors used their aggressive attack and dominating defensive presence at the net to end the Rams’ season in a 25-14, 25-9, 25-18 sweep in the Class 4A, Regional 2 finals in Sergeant Bluff Monday.
