    Subbert’s 27 points came on 11-of-19 shooting. The senior added seven rebounds and three blocks to put the Viqueens in the regional finals and one game from a state tournament bid.

    “It feels good,” Subbert said after the game. “It’s been a long time since we’ve been to the finals. Just to get this far is a great accomplishment.”

  • Titans ends Rams’ season in...

    Council Bluffs Lewis Central girls basketball used a 13-5 third quarter run to pull away in a tightly contested Class 4A Region 8 38-32 semifinal victory over Glenwood in Council Bluffs Saturday.

    “It was a tight game all the way and very low scoring,” Glenwood coach Barry Loeffelbein said. “There was some good defense; neither of us could make shots and they got hot in the second quarter. We came back a bit but we couldn’t get shots to fall.”

  • Howell earns win at state

    The East Mills wresting team placed 69th at the Iowa State Wrestling Tournament last weekend.

    The Wolverines got a consolation round victory by heavyweight David Howell for their three team points. East Mills tied with Alta-Aurelia, Northrund Kensett, Sigourney-Keota, Southwest Iowa, Wayne-Corydon and West Sioux for 69th place.

    “I felt like we wrestled pretty well,” said East Mills coach Claude Lang. “Every match we wrestled was really close. We were one move away from winning just about every match.”

  • 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...

  • 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.

    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.”
