  • 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.

  • East Mills wins Corner...

    MALVERN — For the first time since 2011, the East Mills boys basketball team cut down the nets at the Corner Conference Tournament.

    East Mills (14-2 overall) defeated Sidney in a defensive-minded 35-27 slugfest in front of a packed East Mills High School gymnasium Saturday night for the conference title game.

  • Howell perfect on comeback trail...

    East Mills Wrestling Coach Claude Lang had the unfortunate pleasure of grappling with his star heavyweight David Howell at a practice shortly before the conclusion of the winter break.

    Lang was the lone coach on the staff whose weight class was comparable to the Wolverines’ 285 pound Howell.

    “He had been building up all his aggression for that one day and it was not a fun practice for myself,” Lang said of his senior heavyweight. “He literally beat me up and it was not fun.”

  • Shenandoah fourth quarter dooms...

    Shenandoah out-scored Glenwood 16-9 in the fourth quarter to pull out a 58-57 upset Friday in Hawkeye 10 Conference boys basketball.

    Jake Lewis led Glenwood (9-6 overall, 4-3 in the conference) with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Braden Wheeler added 16 and Dylan Stouder 11.

    Glenwood 82,
    Red Oak 55

    Points in the paint isn’t a statistic typically tracked in your average high school basketball stat book.

    After Glenwood’s performance Tuesday, perhaps it should be.
