  • Rams' Historic Season Ends...

    DES MOINES - Glenwood, so hot shooting the basketball in its regional championship win over Winterset last week, went ice cold in the second quarter of its opening round game of the Iowa Girls State Tournament Tuesday night and Davenport Assumption took advantage.

     

  • East Mills will play 11-man...

        East Mills football coach Kevin Schafer will have to dust off some 11-man playbooks.
        After five years of eight man football, East Mills is moving up to 11-man football and Class A for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
        “I bet you I threw all those (playbooks) away,” Schafer said. “I assumed we would probably always be eight man. But when we first switched over, I converted some of our 11-man stuff to 8-man, so some of it can be converted back.”

  • Treynor ends Knights' season

        The Fremont-Mills boys basketball team’s season came to an end on Thursday with a 54-45 loss to Treynor in the Class 1A, District 1 semifinals.
        The Knights (15-8) trailed 34-25 at the half but managed to rally in the third quarter behind a 10-2 run to trim the Cardinals’ lead to 36-35 heading into the fourth quarter. But Treynor (21-1) responded with a 10-2 run of its own to open the fourth quarter en route to the win.

  • Wolverines fall in district...

        The East Mills boys basketball ralled from 16 points down but came up just a little short in a 59-49 Class 1A, District 1 semifinals loss last Tuesday to Council Bluffs St. Albert.
        The Falcons, winners of three in a row, came out on fire, jumped on the Wolverines early, and lead 19-3 after a dizzying, fast-paced first quarter.

  • History in their Hands

        Seeing his team was swatting some butterflies and dealing with the nerves just prior to perhaps the biggest game of their young basketball careers, Glenwood girls basketball coach Barry Loeffelbein lofted a joke at his team.
        “What's blue and smells like red paint?”
        After a few dull stares, the coach replied, “Blue paint.”
         The team burst into laughter. Butterflies gone. Nerves restored.

  • Rams Punch Ticket To State!

    ATLANTIC - It had been 33 years since the Glenwood girls basketball had qualified for the state tournament. Not anymore.

    The Rams hit a season-high 12 three-pointers and had four girls score in double figures to outrun and outplay an upstart Winterset team, 71-46, in the class 3A, Region 8 championship to punch the school's first ticket to state since 1979.

    Glenwood coach Barry Loffelbein was at a loss for words after his
    team's 22nd win in 23 games this season.

  • Wolverines stop Walnut, 66-45

        Luke Schafer scored a game-high 31 points to lead East Mills to a 65-45 victory over Walnut in the Class 1A, District 1 quarterfinals on Thursday.
        The Wolverines (18-4) blew open the game with a 17-7 second-quarter run and put the Warriors away on a 21-10 third-quarter run.
        East Mills limited Walnut to 31.5 percent (17-of-54) shooting and held a 37 to 22 rebounding edge.
