  • Glenwood boys soccer state bound

        After his team scraped by Harlan 1-0 in a hard fought Hawkeye 10 Conference battle in April, Glenwood coach Mike Artist didn’t know what to expect from a Class 2A, Substate final match up with the Cyclones.
        Less than five minutes into the game, Artist had his answer. Trenton McNeel’s goal sailed through the net for a 1-0 lead to take the air right out of the unranked Cyclones’ upset bid over the No. 4 ranked Rams en route to a 3-0 victory that lands Glenwood into the state tournament.

        Ana Van Scoy played a tough match and won  her No. 1 match against Catie Faust, who previously had beaten Van Scoy in a super tiebreaker earlier this year at the Shenandoah Tournament. Van Scoy won that match 8-5 and went on to pair with Grace Newman for a 8-4 doubles win.

  • Glenwood boys soccer rebounds...

        The Glenwood boys soccer team rebounded from a lethargic early morning loss to Spirit Lake to win its final two games at the Waverly-Shell Rock Invitational on Saturday.
        The Rams (10-3) came out slow against the state No. 13 ranked Tornadoes in the opening round match. They trailed 1-0 at halftime but seemed to lose focus once they got down 2-0 in the 4-0 loss, said Glenwood coach Mike Artist.
