    “I’ll coach Glenwood over here in the summer and then Bellevue East in the fall,” said, Horton who is replacing one-year head coach Mark Starner.

    The Rams (4-1 overall, 3-0 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) struggled to adjust to the Black Raiders’ offensive scheme in the loss.

    “Sioux City East played a formation that we were not used to seeing,” said Glenwood coach Amy Benson.  They did a really good job of using their outside defenders as an extra option on offense.”

    Glenwood coach Shane Keeling was encouraged by the play of his defense, posting their second straight shutout of the season, but still saw areas where his team needs to improve on offense.
