  • Glenwood boys fall to Dallas...

    Dallas Center-Grimes turned a tight 1-0 match into a 2-0 lead just seconds before halftime and Glenwood never recovered in a 6-0 loss in the Class 2A, Substate 8 opening round last Monday.

    The Rams could have matched the Hawkeyes. The game was called with 9:52 left in second half due to lightning.

  • Glenwood off to high-scoring 3-0...

    The Glenwood softball team smacked 27 hits and scored 35 runs in a Hawkeye 10 Conference double header sweep of Council Bluffs St. Albert Thursday in Council Bluffs.

    The Rams (2-1) smacked 10 hits off Yellowjackets pitchers and built on a 3-0 lead after two innings with a big five run rally in the fifth to put the game out of reach.

    Loeffelbein’s lone hit was his first home run of the season and drove in two runs. Cade Van Ness, Andrew Holiday and Dax Lappala each recorded two hits.

  • Glenwood boys ninth at state...

    DES MOINES - Wet and cold conditions may have prevented better times and a higher finish but Glenwood boys track coach Mark Starner couldn’t find fault in his team’s  ninth place finish at the Class 3A Iowa State Track and Field Meet Saturday in Des Moines.

    The Rams won five medals, spent much of the final day in the top five of the team standings and finished with 33 points on a chilly weekend that looked and felt more like early April than late May.

  • No sophomore slump for Schraft,...

    Janette Schraft admitted the race was the toughest of her short but already prolific career.

    That race was the 3,000-meters and the pace far exceeded what the East Mills sophomore had planned.

    Little could you tell on Schraft’s face as she stoically dismantled the field and won her second straight gold medal in the 3,000-meters on the opening day of the Iowa State Track Meet in Des Moines.

  • Wolverines fourth, Knights 13th...

    Janette Schraft pulled of fa gold medal sweep of the 800, 1,500 and 3,000-meters and the East Mills girls finished fourth in the team standings at the Class 1A Iowa State Track and Field Meet Saturday in Des Moines.

    Sigourney pulled away from Maple Valley in the last few events to win the Class 1A team title with 48 points. Danville was third with 45.5 points followed by the Wolverines’ school-best finish in fourth with 36 points.

  • Rams send 17 to state track meet

    DENISON - The Glenwood boys and girls track teams combined to qualify in 16 events at this week’s Iowa State Track and Field Meet.

    In the state qualifying meet in Denison, Glenwood placed second in the both of the team standings with the boys finishing as the runners up to Sergeant Bluff-Luton (178 to 145) and the girls finishing second to the host Monarchs (176 to 126).

  • Glenwood punches ticket to state...

    Neither the weather nor Clarke-Osceola could stop Glenwood in Saturday’s Class 1A Girls State Tennis Quarterfinals in Atlantic.

    The Rams earned a 5-1 victory to secure a spot in the state semifinals. The Rams were to meet Waverly-Shell Rock on Tuesday in Boone. Those results were not available at press time.

  • ‘A Forgotten Championship’

    There’s no mention of it in the 1967 Glenwood High School yearbook.

    Track and field fans rarely mention it when referring to Glenwood’s historic track and field success, including its 1989, 1990 and 2011 state titles.

    Were it not for the banner, that wasn’t hung in the high school gym until 2011, and a dusty trophy on display behind the more recent outdoor state track championship trophies, Glenwood’s first state championship might be lost to history.
