  • 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.

  • Turnovers doom Rams in playoffs

    SERGEANT BLUFF - Not all touchdowns are created equal.

    For instance, take Sergeant Bluff-Luton’s touchdown just before halftime.

    The 18-yard scamper by Britton Delperdang made the score 14-9 at the half, to be sure, but in what was then a tight game between two ranked Class 3A opponents clashing in the opening round of the playoffs, that touchdown was a momentum grabber.

  • F-M dominates Stanton, heads to...

    Fremont-Mills surrendered 42 points to Stanton on Sept. 1.

    The Knights were determined to not let that happen again, and proved it with a 63-0 shutout at Stanton Friday night in the first round of the eight-man playoffs.

  • Glenwood girls headed to state...

    ATLANTIC - Glenwood girls cross country coach Jeff Janssen felt confident if his team could place his top five runners among the top 25 places, they’d have a good shot at making state.

    The Rams did just that – and better.

    “We almost had seven girls reach that benchmark,” Janssen said.

  • 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.
