  • Rams take title at Southern Cal-...

    Johnny Fuller led four Glenwood runners in the top 10 as the Rams took the team title at the Southern Cal-Lake City Cross Country Invitational last Tuesday.

  • East Mills runs past Sidney in...

    SIDNEY - East Mills coach Andy Irwin said it wasn’t the rain Friday night that diverted his usually pass happy offense into running the ball 27 times in the second half and passing just four times.

    Whatever the reason - and for the record, Irwin said it was mostly a halftime adjustment to emphasize the run in the second half - it’s hard to argue with the Wolverines’ success. East Mills rushed for a 168 yards and Jake Bolton threw for two scores all after halftime to hang on late for a 26-22 victory over Sidney in Eight Man, District 8 football on Friday.

  • Getting His Kicks

    Through four games of his senior season for the North Alabama University football team, placekicker Kenny Spencer is 5-of-7 on field goal attempts.

    In his one year as the starting place kicker for the Glenwood football team in 2004, Spencer, then a lanky 170-pounder better known for his play on the soccer field than the football field, was 5-for-7 on field goals for the entire season.

    Spencer, a 2005 Glenwood Community High School graduate has come a long way.

    Literally.

  • Glenwood stumbles at Creston

    Rarely does a team out yard its opponent, have less turnovers and win the battle of field position and not come out with the win. But that's exactly what happened on Friday as Creston knocked off Glenwood 14-6 in Class 3A, District 8 football action.

    “They made it a struggle for us,” said Glenwood coach Brian Albert, whose team dropped to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the district.

    The Rams got on the board first in the first quarter when Cole Darrow picked off Luke Eblen’s first pass of the game to set up Michael Lawler’s 24 yard field goal.

  • Glenwood still looking for first...

    Red Oak edged Glenwood 25-22, 25-23, 25-22 in a Hawkeye 10 Conference volleyball match to drop the Rams to 6-6 overall and 1-4 in the conference.

    The Rams never trailed by more than five points in any game and lost the match by a total of eight points.

  • Rams fall in home opener, new...

    On the night it unveiled its new gym in front of a near packed crowd, the Glenwood volleyball team rode that wave of excitement to a game one win but couldn't sustain the momentum in a marathon 25-19, 22-25, 21-25, 25-21, 6-15 loss to Harlan last Tuesday night.

  • Rams win in homecoming shutout

    “Was this a shutout?”

    That's how Glenwood football coach Brian Albert responded when asked when his team last posted a shutout.

    It's hard to blame Albert for being a little distracted. He’s got a little more on his mind after his team improved to 3-1 on the season and a 2-0 start in Class 3, District 8 with a 17-0 victory over Clarke-Osceola on Homecoming Night in Glenwood.

    Albert couldn't recall the last time Glenwood shut out an opponent or when his team last started a football season 3-1 but agrees the Rams' 2-0 start in the district is big.

  • Bolton’s five TD...

    Jake Bolton threw five touchdown passes and the East Mills defense posted its first ever shutout in a 60-0 eight man, District 8 football victory over South Page on Friday.

    East Mills coach Andy Irwin entered the game hoping his team could fine tune its pass protection against the 1-3 Rebels. And boy did they ever.

    “We had some trouble last week defending the blitzing linebacker against our spread and we wanted to sharpen that up,” he said. “I really thought we took care of some things in this game.”
