  • Rams cap regular-season with 42-...

    Glenwood put an exclamation point on the regular season Friday night at Ram Memorial Field with a 42-20 victory over Adel-DeSoto-Minburn (ADM). The lopsided victory, which was not as close as the final score might indicate, sends the 8-1 Rams into the Class 3A state playoffs as the Class 3A, District 7 runner-up.

    There was little drama in Friday night’s regular season finale as the Rams scored on their first three offensive possessions to take control against outmanned ADM, a team that finished winless in district play.

  • Tigers rally, end Knights’ season

    TABOR - Fremont-Mills started strong but could never put Griswold away as the Tigers rallied for a two set deficit to win 17-25, 24-26, 25-22, 25-22, 15-8 in the Class 1A, Region 2 opening round in Tabor last Tuesday.

    The loss ends the Knights’ season with a record of 16-17 overall and 3-4 in the Corner Conference. The toughest loss of the season is usually the last but even Malcom said the defeat was a tough one for her and her team.

  • No. 2 ranked Kuemper gets by...

    Hawkeye 10 Conference champions Kuemper Catholic traveled to Glenwood last Monday and left with a 25-15, 25-23, 25-16 victory over the Rams in Hawkeye 10 Conference volleyball.

    The Class 3A, No. 2 rated Knights (35-2 overall, 10-0) dominated the Rams (16-14 overall, 4-5 in the conference) at the net, recording 16 blocks and picking up 66 digs.

  • Knights rough up C-A-M, lock up...

    A sluggish half on offensive was saved by a dominating defensive effort by Fremont-Mills in a playoff clinching victory over C-A-M.

    The Knights overcame their own miscues – twice having touchdowns called back by penalty – in getting out a 21-0 lead in a first half that saw them limit the Cougars to 16 total yards and no first downs in a 42-12 victory in Eight-man, District 7.

  • 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.
