  • Rams Punch Ticket To State With...

     The Glenwood boys basketball team punched its ticket to next week's state tournament with an 82-69 substate final victory over Harlan Monday night. See Wednesday's edition of The Opinion-Tribune for complete coverage.

  • F-M falls to Exira/EHK in...

    Basketball is a game of runs.

    Fremont-Mills is all too well aware of that fact.

    After using a 13-1 run to take its first lead late in the first half and a 10-3 run to open the second half, the Knights opened up a lead that swelled to as many as nine points.

    But a fourth quarter cold streak that led to a 12-2 run by Exira/EHK proved the difference as Fremont-Mills’ season came to an end in a 64-57 loss in the Class 1A, District 14 first round at Council Bluffs St. Albert Thursday.

  • Knights’ post-season run ends in...

    Boyer Valley used a 14-2 second quarter run to pull away from Fremont-Mills for a 62-42 win in the Class 1A, Region 7 semifinals in Treynor Friday.

    The loss ends the Knights’ season with a record of 15-10. The state rated Bulldogs (20-2) advanced to Monday’s regional final against Exira/Elk-Horn-Kimballton. Results of that game were not available at press time.

  • Heelan ends Rams’ season in...

    SIOUX CITY – Sioux City Bishop Heelan used a mix of defenses and an aggressive offensive attack to open the game on an 18-5 run and cruised to a 60-20 victory to end the Rams’ season Saturday in the Class 4A, Regional semifinals in Sioux City.

    The Rams (8-14) never got on track offensively as the Crusaders built a 32-10 halftime lead.

  • Rams' Sanders will wrestle...

    DES MOINES - For the third straight season, a Glenwood wrestler will compete for a state title.

    The Rams’ Caleb Sanders, the top ranked heavyweight entering the tournament, will face No. 4 ranked Dylan Olson of Dubuque Hempstead in Saturday night’s sold out finals at the Wells Fargo Arena.

    Sanders pinned his way to the semifinals Friday night, where, looking determined and focused, he dispatched Griffen Liddel of Bettendorf 9-3 to reach Saturday’s finals.

  • Glenwood gets defensive in...

    Glenwood got 13 points apiece from Brooklyn Taylor and Brielle Smith in a 43-32 victory over Denison in the Rams’ regular-season final Saturday.

    The Rams’ defense limited the Monarchs to just 29.5 percent shooting (13-of-44) and their second-lowest offensive output of the season. Leading scorer Alex Mohr was also held to a season-low two points and 0-of-7 shooting from the field.

  • Rams shoot lights-out in 82-43...

    Nate Kennedy tied a school-record with seven three-pointers and Glenwood hit a season-high 15 threes as a team in an 82-43 victory over Denison in Hawkeye 10 Conference boys basketball on Senior Night in Glenwood Saturday.

    The Rams (18-2) shot 63.5 percent from the field (33-of-52), including 15-of-24 from behind the arc while eclipsing 80 points for sixth time this season.

    “It was a great shooting night for us,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte.

  • Powers’ three lifts Fremont-...

    Jaeger Powers’ three-pointer as time expired lifted Fremont-Mills to a 49-47 victory over Nebraska City in a out-of-conference boys basketball tilt last Tuesday in Tabor.

    The win was the Knights’ second straight dramatic win after a 57-49 overtime victory over Clarinda the night before.

  • Second half run carries Knights...

    A 17-2 run that bridged the second and third quarters blew open a 21-21 game and lifted Fremont-Mills to a 51-27 victory over West Harrison in the Class 1A, Region 7 opening round Thursday in Tabor.

    The Knights (14-9) used the 17-2 run – and out-scored the Hawkeyes’ 34-14 in the second half – to build a lead that swelled to as many as 23 after halftime.

  • Rams send seven to state

    As far as district titles go, it wasn’t a perfect finish.

    As finishes go, it was as perfect as Glenwood Coach Brad Asche had hoped.

    Glenwood had seven wrestlers reach the finals in the respective weight classes at the Class 3-A District 8 Championship in Waukee Saturday and all seven punched their ticket to this week’s state tournament.

    “We were really close to going seven for seven on district championships but we had a couple guys that had to take a different route,” Asche said.
