    The Glenwood boys basketball team withstood a two-hour road trip, a bus breakdown and a late rally to post a 53-48 victory over Kuemper Catholic on Friday.

    The Rams (2-1 overall, 1-1 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) were delayed en route to Carroll on Friday afternoon with mechanical problems on the team bus. After a short delay waiting for a replacement bus, the Rams arrived on time.

    “This was a good win,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte. “Anytime you can win at Kuemper its a good win. So with all that happened, this was a solid win for us.”

  • Hamburg stops East Mills

    A 13-6 run to open the third quarter proved the difference for Hamburg in a 49-38 Corner Conference girls basketball victory over East Mills on Friday.

    The Wolverines (0-5 overall, 0-1 in the conference) started off the game scoring the first seven points but were out scored 20-2 to finish out the opening frame.

    Jensen Duysen scored 15 points and Gabbi Sowers 14 to lead East Mills.

  • Cyclones escape Glenwood with...

    The Glenwood girls basketball team’s 44-43 loss to Harlan will go down as a game of missed opportunities.

    With just over 15 seconds left in the game, the Rams (2-1 overall, 0-1 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) had the ball in a 43-43 game against the state ranked Cyclones. But a missed layup and a foul with just over a second left before the game would have gone in to overtime, allowed Harlan to escape on a free throw by Jordan Brelje, 44-43.

  • Glenwood boys can’t...

    Coming into their Hawkeye 10 Conference opener against state ranked No. 7 Harlan, Glenwood boys basketball coach Curt Schulte said his team would have to be sharp in every phase of the game to have a shot at the upset.

    On Friday, the Rams struggled shooting the ball, struggled at the free throw line and struggled to contain the Cyclones’ offensive penetration. In other words, the Rams were decidedly not sharp and it showed in a 71-42 loss to the Cyclones before a reporter-estimated 1,000 at the Glenwood gymnasium on Friday.

  • Rams fourth at Harlan’...

    Nate Harms and Colin White won individual titles and Glenwood placed fourth as a team at the Dan Hill Invitational Wrestling Meet in Harlan on Saturday.

    ADAIR-East Mills has made a living off of big plays this season.
