  • Rams trample Denison

    DENISON - Glenwood rushed for a season-high 390 yards and scored the game’s first 31 points in a 52-14 victory on the road at Denison Friday.

    “This was our most complete game,” said Glenwood coach Cory Faust. “I thought we were pretty solid in all three phases for the most part. We’ve been really struggling on offense, especially in the first half of games. So I thought it was big we forced a turnover on their second possession and we were able to punch it in. That kind of got the monkey off our backs.”

  • Wolverines topple C-A-M in...

    A midweek overhaul to the offense and a recent roster addition came up big for East Mills in a wild 57-56 Eight-man, District 7 victory over C-A-M Friday in Malvern.

    The Wolverines, who scored just 32 points combined in their 0-3 start, eclipsed that total midway through the first quarter against the Cougars (3-2). The offensive explosion was a result of a change in the offense East Mills coach Kevin Schafer instituted at Monday’s practice.

  • Rams rally from first set loss...

    “I think we started with some nervous energy,” said Glenwood volleyball coach Chelsey Harvey of her team’s first set loss that saw them commit five service errors and look out of synch.

    “It was our first home match and we really wanted this win and we got antsy. I thought we might be. We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy win with Shenandoah taking out Harlan last week.”
