  • Knights can’t hold off Viqueens...

    For one game, the Fremont-Mills volleyball team showed defending nine-time champion Stanton it came to play in the Corner Conference championship match Thursday.

    “The girls came out like gangbusters,” said Fremont-Mills coach Tracy Malcom. “We went into this game driven. We say that before every game, and we were on as far as setting and hitting. We were sharp and polished. We were on target exactly where we wanted to be.”

  • Big plays carry Fremont-Mills to...

    Fremont-Mills scored touchdowns on plays of 30, 33, 39, 43 and 68 yards as the Knights cruised to a 52-12 victory over Nishnabotna in Eight-Man, District 8 football Friday in Hamburg.

    “This was a very up and down game for us,” said Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christiansen. “We overwhelmed them at times but we also had a lot of breakdowns here and there.”

  • Rams drop third straight

    Trevor Frain raced 55 yards for a touchdown on Creston’s opening play from scrimmage and Glenwood never seemed to recover in a 49-21 Class 3A, District 1 loss on Friday.    

    Creston (5-2) sprinted out to a 28-0 lead before Glenwood got on the board just before halftime to make it 28-7 at the break.

  • Oh, So Close

    Every football game comes down to one or two plays that decide a game.

    The Cyclones’ Chris Brace won the individual title with a time of 17:41. The girls title went to Griswold’s Rebekah Topham in 14:28.

    Glenwood hit a season-high .409 as a team in a 25-13, 25-18, 25-14 sweep of Denison last Tuesday in Hawkeye 10 Conference volleyball.

    The Rams recorded 45 kills in the win, led by Halie Darrow and Courtney Magnussen with nine each. Seven different Rams recorded at least one kill.

    Glenwood coach Maria Jacobus credits much of her team’s offensive success to its defense.

    Stanton rallied to cut the Fremont-Mills lead to within two scores to end the third quarter but a big fourth quarter secured the Knights a 56-20 victory on homecoming in Stanton Friday.

  • Wolverines ‘flat’ in loss to Lo-...

    A spirited Logan-Magnolia defensive effort and “flat” first half effort by East Mills spelled doom for the Wolverines in Class 1A, District 8 football Friday.

    Logan-Magnolia shut out East Mills while limiting them to a season-low 142 total yards in a 16-0 victory. The shut out is the first loss ever for the Wolverines where they failed to score.

  • Strong second half carries Rams...

    It was a tale of two halves Friday night for the Glenwood football team.

    After spitting and sputtering for most of the first half, the Rams’ offense came to life in the third quarter to fuel a 31-14 homecoming victory over Perry.

    “We felt we kind of beat ourselves in the first half,” Glenwood head coach Cory Faust said. “I credit our coaches for making adjustments for the second half and the players coming out and executing.”

  • East Mills stays perfect with win

    MALVERN – The East Mills football team gave Westwood a lesson in hard-nosed, old school football on Friday.

    The Wolverine defense was once again dominant holding the Rebels to less than 100 yards rushing – the fourth time in as many games they’ve done so – as the offense slugged and muscled it’s way for 309 yards rushing in a 37-6 district win.
