  • Rams trounce Tigers in season-...

    Ten plays.

    That’s how long it took Glenwood to exert its will on Red Oak in its season-opening football victory on Friday.

    The Rams marched 56 yards in 10 plays, all rushing attempts, capped by quarterback Corey Bertini’s three-yard plunge on the game’s opening drive, to go ahead 7-0 and cruise to a 43-13 victory before a reporter-estimated 400 at Ram Memorial Field.

  • Fright Knight

    MONDAMIN - On it’s disastrous first two plays from scrimmage Fremont-Mills netted four yards, two fumbles and a turnover.

    Then things really got bad. Four plays later West Harrison converted that turnover into a touchdown and then added four more scores off Knight first half giveaways en route to a 62-12 season-opening victory over Fremont-Mills in Mondamin on Friday.

    After winning the opening coin toss and electing to receive the ball first, the Hawkeyes jumped on the Knights and never seemed to let up.

    Glenwood softball coach Tim Stanton is stepping down as the Rams’ softball coach after 11 seasons at the helm.

  • Rams fall in 1-0 Harlan...

    Call it a fluke, a cruel twist of fate or a unlucky break – the result is the same.

    A pitch from Lisa Nebel got past catcher Bailey Starner and Harlan’s Logan Schaben slid in safely to score the game’s only run to end the Glenwood softball team’s season with a 1-0 loss in the Class 4A, Region 8 Quarterfinals at H. Jack Field Saturday.

  • Glenwood baseball splits with...

    The Glenwood baseball team stayed alive in the Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball title race with a split with Kuemper Catholic on Saturday in Carroll.

  • Rams lock up second place in...

    With Harlan running away with the Hawkeye 10- Conference softball crown with a near perfect 17-1 record, Glenwood softball coach Tim Stanton knew his team was out of the title hunt heading into its final weekend of conference play.

    But second place, Stanton knew, was there for the taking if the Rams could get past Kuemper Catholic in a rain postponed double-header in Carroll on Saturday.
