    Dylan Blankenship and Colin White of Glenwood were named to the Class 3A team. Blankenship, a senior running back, was fourth in Class 3A last season with 1,538 yards rushing and scored 16 touchdowns. White, a senior offensive and defensive lineman, was first-team all-Hawkeye 10 Conference last year on the offensive line.

  • Cyclones get two in ninth to end...

    For six innings, the Glenwood softball team outplayed, out hustled and out scored Harlan in its Class 3A regional quarterfinal match up on Saturday.

    It was the seventh inning that proved the problem as Harlan used two singles, a sacrifice bunt and Glenwood's only error of the game to score two runs in its final at bat to end the Rams' season with a 2-1 victory.

    Glenwood coach Tim Stanton was emotional after the game.

    “I don't think I can talk right now,” said Stanton, declining interview requests.

  • Ram Repeat

    Glenwood cross country coach Todd Peverill called his shot earlier in the week.

    “It'll come down to us and Kuemper,” he said.

    And the coach was right – the Hawkeye 10 Conference Boys Cross Country title did come down to his Class 3A No. 5 ranked Rams and the Knights. But even Peverill couldn't have predicted his team would win by the margin it did.

  • Knight offense stymied in 48-0...

    TABOR - The Fremont-Mills football team turned the ball over four times and could muster just 47 yards of total offense in a 48-0 loss to Treynor in Class A, District 8 football Friday.

    “We talk all the time, if we don't turn the ball over we have a chance to win ball games. It's been our M.O. all season, we've turned it over way too many times,” said Fremont-Mills coach Jeremy Christensen.

    Treynor (7-1 overall, 5-1 in the district) turned two of the Knights' four turnovers into first-half touchdowns and allowed just nine yards rushing on 22 carries.
