  • Glenwood stays perfect in 89-41...

    RED OAK - Glenwood Coach Curt Schulte is a tough grader.

    The Rams’ head coach graded his team’s performance in last Tuesday’s win over Red Oak as “7” on a 10-point scale.

    Considering Glenwood opened the game on a 11-2 run, led by 34 points at the half and cruised to an 89-41 win on the road against a Hawkeye 10 Conference opponent, one might wonder why the middling grade.

  • Fourth quarter troubles continue...

    RED OAK - For the second straight game and third time this season the Glenwood girls held a lead in the fourth quarter but couldn’t put the game away in a tough road loss.

  • Glenwood comeback falls short

    Glenwood trimmed a 15 points second half lead to three points in the final minutes but could get no closer in a 62-56 loss to Council Bluffs St. Albert in girls Hawkeye 10 Conference basketball Friday.

    The Rams trailed 14-9 after a quarter and by 15 midway through the second quarter before mounting their comeback.

    Glenwood’s rally was keyed by its defense but fell short in the fourth quarter after an injury knocked out Elle Scarborough and both Brielle Smith and Brooklyn Taylor fouled out.

  • 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.
