  • Glenwood Girls Advance With OT...

    It took the second half of extra time, but the Glenwood Rams girls soccer team advanced to the semifinals of the Class 2A Region 3 tournament after defeating Winterset 4-3, Thursday evening.

    Jordyn Hanshaw scored the game-winning goal for Glenwood thanks to an assist by Sydney Gutschenritter at the third minute mark of the second half of extra time.

  • Substate Loss Ends Rams'...

    As cliche as it sounds, Glenwood’s substate soccer loss to Adel DeSoto Minburn (ADM) Saturday afternoon really was much closer than the final score would indicate.

    The Rams took 15 more shots than ADM, but it was the Tigers who would tally three goals in the final 15 minutes of the game to punch their ticket to the state tournament with a 3-0 win before more than 200 spectators at the GCHS soccer field.

  • Softball Preview

    Balance.

    That’s the word Glenwood softball coach Tim Stanton used to describe his 2013 squad.

    “I think we’ll have several kids that are standout players and when you have that many kids standout, nobody is standing out,” he said. “I think we have a lot of good players and good hitters. I don’t think this going to be ‘Glenwood has this person,’ it’s going to be ‘Glenwood has a team.’”

  • Baseball Preview

    The Glenwood baseball team returns nine of its top 10 hitters and four pitchers that won at least three games.

    Yet, that wealth of experience isn’t offering head coach Brett Elam the comfort level one might think.

    The Rams committed 95 errors in 35 games a year ago, nearly three per game.

    Elam has made it clear to his team, to play championship level baseball that can’t continue.

  • Knights, Wolverines come up big...

    CORNING - Fremont-Mills’ Kevin Herrick and East Mills’ Nick Pittmon won three events each to win automatic bids to this week’s state track meet with their performances at the Class 1A District meet at Corning on Thursday.

    Herrick took home gold in the high jump, 400-meter dash and 400-meter hurdles. He will be joined at state by teammate Clayton Wilson, who won the 110-meter high hurdles, and Mackenzy Lang who won the 3,200-meters.

    Also qualifying for state for the Knights was Jason Rusten (3,200-meters) and Spencer Phillips (discus).

  • Record day for Ram track

    Not even rain could dampen the Glenwood track teams’ performances at districts.

    The Glenwood boys qualified a record number 19 athletes in 15 events to win their third straight district title while the girls placed third as a team and qualified a school-record 13 athletes in 11 events before a rain soaked crowd of 400 at Ram Memorial Field on Thursday.

  • Glenwood boys soccer gets...

    Glenwood overcame a  1-0 halftime to win their second straight overtime match in non-conference boys soccer action last Tuesday.

    “This felt like a game where they (Sioux City North) came out stronger than us, we hung in there with our defense and we got the momentum back,” said Glenwood coach Shane Keeling.

    Marco Carrillo got the Stars on the board when his shot deflected off Ram goalkeeper Nick Frazee’s hands just inside the far post for the game’s first goal with just two minutes to go before halftime.

  • Mustangs nip Rams, 5-4 in tennis

    The Glenwood boys tennis team lost a  close 5-4 decision to Shenandoah last Wednesday in a match played indoors at the Montgomery County YMCA in Red Oak due to weather conditions.  

    Rams’ No. 1 player Joe Gunkelman played his most consistent game of the season against the Fillies’ Jacob Holmes at the No. 1 singles spot but fell 10-6 to the senior.

    Max Chavez and Cole Peckham continued their winning streaks beating their opponents 10-7 and 10-3, respectively.  

  • Rams 11th at Atlantic tourney

    Host Atlantic took home the team crown and Creston’s Carson Whittington top individual honors at the Trojan Invitational at Nishna Hills Golf Course last Tuesday.

    Atlantic edged Creston 304 to 314 in the team standings.

    Glenwood finished with a team round of 388.

    Whittington shot a tournament best 69.

    Kobe Rhodes paced Glenwood with a  round of 86.

  • Knight girls, Wolverine boys win...

    TABOR - Fremont-Mills’ five year reign as Corner Conference champions has come to an end.

    East Mills got five gold medal performances from Nick Pittmon and edged the Knights 136 to 120 to win the school’s first ever conference title last Tuesday in Tabor.

    “Everything that needed to go our way, went our way,” said East Mills coach Claude Lang. “The kids are excited. This was one of their goals coming in.”
