  • Rams' Malcom, Clark advance...

    The Iowa State Wrestling Tournament got underway at Wells Fargo Arena today with a pair of Glenwood wrestlers advancing to tomorrow’s second round.

    The Rams’ 132-pound Matt Malcom scored a 13-0 major decision over Jakeb Bakken of Iowa City West in the opening round.

    Josh Clark, a first time state qualifier, earned the Rams’ second win of the day when he won a 15-9 decision over Johnston’s Nathaniel Standish.

  • Rams send four to state

    Glenwood - Matt Malcom stunned Sioux City North’s No. 8 ranked Dalton Hanson with a first period pin and the Glenwood wrestlers edged Sioux City East for the team title at the Class 3A, District 5 meet.

    Glenwood narrowly edged East 187 to 184.5. Council Bluffs Lewis Central was third in the team standings with 165 points.

  • Glenwood can’t get by Cyclones

    In a basketball game, a 14-point lead may not seem all that different from an 11-point lead. But in the momentum game, that extra three points makes all the difference.

    Luke Hall’s three pointer at the third quarter buzzer handed Harlan a 47-33 lead and all the momentum heading into the fourth quarter  as the Cyclones downed Glenwood  66-55 in Hawkeye 10 Conference basketball Friday.

  • Wolverines win sectional, send...

    The East Mills wrestling team had seven district qualifiers and claimed the school’s first ever sectional title at the Class 1A sectional Saturday in Audubon.

    The Wolverines 216 team points edged the host Wheelers by 11 points.  The sectional win qualified East Mills for a regional team duals final back in Audubon against Logan-Magnolia. The winner will advance to next week’s state duals in Des Moines.

  • Wolverines run win streak to 13

    Five players scored in double-figures and the East Mills boys basketball team won its 13th game in a row with a 75-48 victory over Fremont-Mills.

    “Easily our best offensive game of the year,” East Mills coach Kevin Schafer said after the game. “We shot better than we have all season and everybody got involved. It was just one of those games.”

    The Wolverines led 40-24 at the half and shot 53.9 percent from the field (34-of-63) for the game.

  • Fremont-Mills’ quick start dooms...

    The Fremont-Mills girls opened the game on a 24-7 run and sprinted to its 17th victory of the season Friday with a 56-34 win over East Mills.

    The Knights (17-3 overall, 15-2 in the Corner Conference) used their aggressive full court press to set the tempo early.

    “We started fast and I felt had a nice first quarter,” Fremont-Mills coach Rod Williams said.  

    Williams wasn’t very happy with his team’s play after the first quarter, however.

  • Glenwood girls fall 75-38 on road

    The Glenwood girls suffered a 75-38 loss on the road at Harlan in Hawkeye 10 Conference girls basketball Friday.
    The 19-0 Cyclones out-scored the Rams 41-13 after halftime in the win.

    Glenwood coach Barry Loffelbein said his team hung close the first two quarters but couldn’t hold the Cyclones back in the second half.

    “We were right there the first half,” Loeffelbein said. “They came out in the second half hot and then they started running the floor, getting some easy looks. They’re a very good team.”

  • Malcom Wins Title, Rams 3rd At...

     DENISON - One individual champion was crowned as the Glenwood Rams finished third at Saturday’s Hawkeye 10 wrestling tournament in Denison.

    Matt Malcom (132 pounds) was the top individual champion for Glenwood. Malcom defeated Spencer Wray of Creston Orient-Macksburg in the first period via pinfall. It’s the first conference championship for Malcom, who finished fourth at 120 pounds last season.

  • Big Man On Campus

     Basketball coaches can teach their players a lot.

    Drills can improve ball handling, passing and rebounding.

    Extra shooting can do just that, improve shooting.

    There seems to be just one thing coaches can’t teach.

    “You can’t ‘teach’ height,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte. 

  • Williams free throws lifts...

    TABOR - The year was 1967.

    It was the “Summer of Love,” “To Sir With Love” by Lulu was on top of the pop charts and “Bonanza” was the top rated TV show.

    It also happens to be the same year the Fremont-Mills girls basketball team last played in the Corner Conference Tournament title game.
    Until Friday.
