  • Glenwood girls down A.L 1-0

    Mia McCorkle’s goal in the eighth minute was all Glenwood needed in a 1-0 victory over Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln Thursday.

    McCorkle’s goal came on a wild play when a through ball from Kari Schuppan was mishandled and ultimately bobbled away by the Lynx’s goal-keeper. McCorkle didn’t give up on the ball, tracked it down and booted in the score.

  • Rams sweep in season openers

    The Glenwood girls tennis team opened its season Thursday with a pair of home victories over Sioux City East and Sioux City West.

    The Rams were perfect in a 9-0 win over East and a 9-0 win over West.

    Glenwood never trailed and never gave up more than two games in the win over East. Ellie Osterloh, Brooklyn Taylor, Ruby Crow and Cameron Rounds all shutout their opponents in singles matches.

  • Glenwood girls win Tiger Relays

    The Glenwood girls won eight events and ran away with the team title at the Red Oak Tiger Relays Thursday in Red Oak.

    The Rams finished with 174 points in the team standings to easily out-pace runner up Creston’s 122 points. Shenandoah was third with 121 points.

  • Glenwood sweeps Hawkeye 10...

    RED OAK - The Glenwood girls and boys track teams combined to win 22 gold medals to sweep the team titles at the Hawkeye 10 Conference Southern Division Meet in Red Oak last Tuesday.

    The boys won 14 events and easily out-paced runner up Shenandoah 251 to 111 in the team scores. The girls held a 201 to 142 edge over the Fillies in the point standings.

    Glenwood boys coach Mark Starner seemed pleased to just be able to compete out on the track finally.

  • East Mills girls, boys fourth at...

    The East Mills girls and boys track teams both placed fourth in the standings at the Stanton Co-ed Relays Thursday.

    The Sidney girls narrowly edged Griswold 112 to 111 for the team title. The Wolverines finished with 86 points for fourth. Griswold captured the boys’ crown with 154 points. The East Mills boys finished fourth with 81 points.

  • Renshaw’s hat trick leads Rams...

    A bad start for Missouri Valley only got worse from there as Jordan Renshaw recorded his first career “hat trick” and Glenwood went on to down the Big Reds 10-0 in the boys soccer opener for both teams Thursday.

    Missouri Valley opened the game with an own goal to get down 1-0 in the first five minutes and the rout was on. The game was called by “mercy rule” with 10 minutes remaining in the second half.

  • ‘Energy and Passion’

    On a chilly night, Feb. 27, 2017, 65 miles from Glenwood, on the hardwood of Harlan Community High School, a motto was born from defeat.

    The words, two simple words really, that rose from the frustration of the Rams’ 69-68 loss to Atlantic in the substate finals – their second straight such heartbreaking loss in as many years – would guide the team all off-season and into what would become a historic 2017-2018 season.

    “Unfinished Business.”

  • Senior Moments

    During Dave Blum and Troy Mohr’s days coaching the Glenwood youth travel team together they had a post-practice routine.

    Part motivation, part inspiration, the coaches would have their youth team, who practiced at the high school gym in those days, gather at mid-court following a grueling practice.  The coaches would then direct the team to look up at the rafters where state championship banners typically hang.

    The rafters were decidedly void of basketball banners.

  • Rams Reign

    The season before Curt Schulte took over as head coach, the Glenwood basketball team won just one game.

    Friday night - 12 years and a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears later - the Rams became state champions.

    A brilliant game plan that had Glenwood spacing out a taller, longer Oskaloosa team and challenging every shot defensively proved the difference as the Rams pulled away late for a 66-62 win before a reporter-estimated crowd of 8,000 at the Wells Fargo Arena in the Class 3A state finals.

  • Rams topple defending champs,...

     Back and forth they went.

    In a state semifinal game that featured nearly a dozen lead changes and neither team extending a margin further than five points over three and a half quarters, this was a game that would be decided by a handful of plays.

    A steal. A late layup. Free throws.

    For Glenwood it was check, check and check as the Rams made all the little plays down the stretch to upend two-time defending state champion Cedar Rapids Xavier 69-63 Thursday to advance to its first ever state title game.
