  • 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.”

  • Rams snag No. 2 seed

    Glenwood wrapped up its regular football season on Friday with a 35-0 victory over Winterset.

    The win secured the Rams (6-3) the No. 2 seed in Wednesday's substate game against Denison. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m. at Ram Memorial Field. Glenwood last made the playoffs in 1994, winning its opening two games over Oskaloosa and Pella before falling in four overtimes 17-14 to Spencer in the semifinals that season.

    On Friday, Glenwood overcame a slow start in muddy conditions to post its second shutout of the season and win its third straight game.

  • 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.
