  • Cowboys corral Knights

    The Knights (1-3 overall, 1-1 in the conference) got down early, trailing 19-7 after a quarter and never could catch up. Fremont-Mills had beaten the Cowboys 57-52 in the season opener for both teams on Dec. 1.

    Fremont-Mills was led by Derrian Bredberg with 11 points. Corey Morrical added nine and Nate Meier and A.J. Scarborough eight each.

  • 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.

    "We started out on a 7-0 run, but lost our composure and turned it over for easy points for them,” said East Mills coach Brian Bertini.

    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.

    Harms at 125 pounds and White, a heavyweight, both won all three of their matches in the tournament.

    Ram 119-pounder Sam Jameson earned Glenwood’s lone second place medal. Steve Gutschenritter (135 pounds) and Jon Williams (160) both earned third-place finishes.

  • Wolverines can’t find...

    The East Mills girls basketball team dropped to 0-3 on the season with a 68-24 setback at Underwood on Friday.

    The Wolverines struggled to find an offensive rhythm, turning the ball over 32 times and shooting 27.5 percent from the field (8-of-29).

    Jensen Duysen led East Mills with eight points and eight rebounds. Gabbi Sowers and Katie Sowers each scored four points.

  • Adair-Casey ends East Mills&...

    ADAIR-East Mills has made a living off of big plays this season. But it was the Bombers of Adair-Casey who lived up to their nickname, scoring three touchdowns in the final six minutes of the second quarter, then getting two long Taylor Wheatley to Gavin Walhovd third-quarter touchdown passes to score a 44-32 first-round Eight-man playoff victory Monday night.

  • Rams seventh at state meet

    FORT DODGE - Last year at the Iowa State Cross Country Meet Glenwood's Johnny Fuller placed 97th out of 121 runners.

    This year, the junior place third.

    Rams coach Todd Peverill thinks that’s an amazing turnaround this year at the Kennedy Park Golf Course in Fort Dodge, but finds it just as easy to throw out last year's performance by Fuller and his team.

  • Rams fall in substate...

    It was a bitter pill to swallow.

    Clinging to a 9-7 lead with just 40 seconds left to play, Glenwood saw its football season come to a heartbreaking end last Wednesday night at Ram Memorial Field, when Denison tailback Jesse Preul darted 58 yards for a touchdown, lifting the Monarchs to a stunning 14-9 Class 3A substate victory.

    “It was the big play,” Glenwood coach Brian Albert said. “If that would have happened earlier, we would have had time to rebound and recover.”
