  • Glenwood wins Hawk-10 title

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - The last time the Glenwood wrestling team sat atop the team standings at the end of the day at the Hawkeye 10 Conference wrestling tournament, most of its current roster were in kindergarten.

    On Saturday, those wrestlers grew up, with three winning individual titles, as the Rams snared their first conference title since 2006, out-distancing runner up Creston 237.5 to 201 in the team standings.

    For Glenwood coach Brad Asche the title was a long time coming.

  • Sanders tops field at Ed Winger...

    Caleb Sanders won the heavyweight crown and the Glenwood wrestlers placed sixth as a team at the Ed Winger Classic at Urbandale High School Saturday.

    Southeast Polk was the team champion with 200 points. West Des Moines Valley was second with 165.5. The Rams finish sixth with 110.5 team points.

    Glenwood coach Brad Asche said he thought his team wrestled “pretty good” against a loaded field of ranked wrestlers in Urbandale.

  • Rams make quick work of...

    The Glenwood boys basketball team took little time dispatching Shenandoah in a Hawkeye 10 Conference boys road game Friday.

    The No. 3 ranked Rams (13-1 overall, in the conference) jumped out to a 27-7 lead and cruised to a 75-26 victory. The win is the Rams ninth this season by 20 or more points.
    “This was a good team win,” Glenwood coach Curt Schulte said. “We played well in all phases and 11 of 15 players scored.”

    Christian Stanislav led a balanced scoring attack with 16 points. Nate Mohr added 14 and Nate Kennedy 10.

  • Wolverines upset in Corner...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - No field goals, four points and six turnovers.

    That would be the statistical line for the East Mills girls in its Corner Conference tournament opener against South Page.

    That would be the statistical result as the No. 6 seeded Rebels took advantage of the No. 3 seeded Wolverines’ offensive struggles and out-scored them 12-4 in the final frame to advance to the conference semifinals.

  • Sidney downs Knights to win...

    Caitlyn Ward and Maddy Duncan scored 19 points each to lead Sidney to a 52-39 victory over Fremont-Mills in the Corner Conference Girls Basketball Tournament championship Friday in Tabor.

    Sidney (12-4 overall, 9-0 in the conference) led 28-18 at the half before pulling away in the second half to win their third straight conference crown.

    Ward grabbed eight rebounds and six steals to go with her 19 points.

  • F-M takes third at Corner...

    If you’d have told Fremont-Mills coach Steve Raymond his team would miss 17 free throws in the fourth quarter, he would not have given his team a betting chance of winning.

    Good thing Raymond isn’t a gambling man.

    The Knights did in fact make just 3-of-17 free throws in the final frame, allowing East Mills to trim a 16 point lead down to three in the waning minutes .Raymond’s squad hung on late in a 48-44 victory in the Corner Conference tournament third place game in Malvern.

  • 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.

    The Rams turned the ball over 11 times and were out-scored 20-7 in the final frame in a 49-39 at Red Oak last Tuesday.

  • Wolverines’ defense key to...

    Rachel Schafer’s 15 points led East Mills to a 39-30 victory over Essex in Corner Conference girls basketball last Tuesday.

    The Wolverines (4-4 overall, 3-2 in the conference) used its full-court press extensively for the first time this season and grabbed 20 steals on defense for their efforts.

  • Rams drop first dual of season

    Glenwood matched Plattsmouth, Neb. with seven wins but the home Blue Devils won the bonus points with six pins to hand the Rams their first wrestling dual loss of the season Thursday.

    The dual was tied 33-33 heading into the final match of the night at 120 pounds when Plattsmouth’s Hunter Smith pinned the Rams’ Ryker Case with six seconds to go in the final round.

  • 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.
