  • Glenwood cross country returning...

    For the second straight season the Glenwood boys cross country team is headed to the Iowa State Cross Country Meet.

    With a second place showing at Perry on Monday, after rain delayed Thursday’s originally scheduled district race, the Rams are one of three district qualifiers who will race this Saturday at the Lakeside Municipal Golf Course in Fort Dodge.

    Glenwood was the team runner up to district champion Boone. Dallas Center-Grimes was third. The top three teams at districts advance to state.

  • Players' Coach

    As a four-year letterman on the Wartburg College football team, Brian Albert rarely left the field.

    Over his career he started nearly every game, 14 of them on both offense and defense, led the team in tackles three times and rushing once, played on every special team and even called the defenses in the huddle.

    “I used to tell the coach coming off the field is more trouble than it’s worth, just keep me in,” Albert said.

  • East Mills shut outs Hamburg,...

    The East Mills football team sealed up the No. 2 seed in Eight man, District 8 with a 58-0 victory at Hamburg on Friday.

    But more importantly than that, said East Mills coach Andy Irwin, whose team had locked up its playoff status a week earlier, was the return of senior quarterback Jake Bolton. Bolton was limited to punting only in the previous three games while he nursed a right (throwing) shoulder injury. Bolton returned under center on Friday, played most of the first half, and completed 7-of-11 passes for 111 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Creston ousts Glenwood in...

    Creston ended the Glenwood girls volleyball team’s season on Monday in the first round of Class 3A Regionals 24-17, 15-25, 19-25, 19-25.

    In the first game the Rams seemed to be picking up right where they left off in a three-game sweep of the Panthers on Oct. 8 when they won the first one 25-17.

    Glenwood coach Kara Huisman thought her team moved the ball well and hit it well in the first game but had troubled sustaining that over the next three games.

  • F-M first at Corner Conference...

    The Fremont-Mills boys track team entered last Tuesday's Corner Conference Track Meet as the defending champions.

    And the Knights left that way for the second straight year after winning nine events and placing second or third in five more. Fremont-Mills ran away from the competition with 136 teams points, 28 points better than runner-up Clarinda Academy.

    The Glenwood boys track team earned 13 gold medals and four silvers to win the team title at the Red Oak Tiger Relays on Thursday.

    The Rams racked up a season-high 216 team points to easily out distanced second place Clarinda (66) and third place Red Oak (53).

    Ian Eflin took home four gold medals on the day winning individual golds in the high jump, 110-meters hurdles and 400-meter hurdles and running a leg of the Rams' shuttle hurdle relay.

  • Rams third at Dodge Park

    The Glenwood girls golf team placed third at the Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln Tournament at Dodge Park Golf Course last Wednesday.

    Konigsmark was extremely pleased with her team's performance.

    “This is the best team score we have had all year,” she said. “The girls are being competitive and have set their goals high.”

    Morgan Woodrum placed 10th overall for Glenwood. Teammates Charley Arno and Bobi Joe Rockwell were12th and 15th, respectively..

  • Rams seventh at Atlantic

    Justin Livingston of Winterset shot a 72 to garner top honors.

    Jake Schoening led Glenwoood with a round of 82.

    “A fantastic round for him,” said Glenwood coach Steve Sylvester.

    Glenwood 166,

    Clarinda 162,

  • Johnny's Quest

    If Glenwood long distance runner Johnny Fuller has any questions about what it takes to win a gold medal at the state track meet, he need look no further than Ram assistant coach Todd Peverill.

    Peverill knows a thing or two about state gold medals. As a gangly, long-haired senior at Waterloo East in 1979, Peverill blistered the Drake Stadium Track to a state-meet record of 4:13.65 in the 1,600-meters. It’s a record that stands to this day.

  • Glenwood girls send nine to state

    The Glenwood girls track team placed second at the Class 3A Regionals at Winterset on Friday with the Rams advancing in nine events to the Iowa State Track Meet this week is Des Moines.

    Atlantic ran away with the team title with 173 points to Glenwood's 121.

    “This was a very good meed, a lot of fun,” said Glenwood coach Brad Rasmussen. “I think what impressed me most about the meet was the crowd. They really got into cheering us on and I think that really helped. Having that crowd behind you really helps.”
