  • Tigers roll to 8-1 win over Rams

    Grant Nikseresht won the opening singles match for the Glenwood boys tennis team, and that was it as Red Oak won the five singles matches and swept the doubles matches for an 8-1 Hawkeye 10 Conference tennis victory last Monday.

    Nikseresht led wire-to-wire in his 10-6 victory over Eduardo Sokolnik, a foreign exchange student from Brazil.

    “Grant played a great match and was very calm as he picked up an important district win,” said Glenwood coach Jim Tucker.

  • Corning narrowly escapes

    Corning edged Glenwood 5-4 in a non-confernce girls tennis dual last Wednesday.

    Lydia Sperling and Jennifer Morgan won their singles matches 8-2 and 8-1 respectively.

    Sperling and Rams' No. 1 Alexa Bledsoe combined for a doubles win over Lindsey Bohannon and Tori Sorensen.

    In the Rams' other double victory, Shelby Cronk and Brittany Dedor combined to down Marian Evans and Shawnee Sproles 7-6 in a tiebreaker.

  • Ram defense tames Mustangs

    The Glenwood boys basketball team held Shenandoah to just two points combined in the second and third quarters en route to a 57-29 Hawkeye 10 Conference victory on Friday.

    The Rams (8-7 overall, 8-5 in the conference) held the Mustangs to 9-of-40 shooting from the field (22.5 percent) and forced 15 turnovers. Glenwood also held a 40-24 rebounding edge.

  • Knights run away from Wildcats

    TABOR - The Fremont-Mills girls basketball team used a 17-5 run over the final 4:12 of the first half to run away from Hamburg in a 57-39 victory on Friday.

    The Knights used its pressure defense to force 18 turnovers and confuse the Wildcat offense.

    “We ran a little bit of a zone defense tonight,” said Fremont-Mills coach Rod Williams after the game. “We mixed things up a little bit and I think that gave them some problems on offense.”

    Those problems and the resulting turnovers led to a steady diet of fast break points for the Knights.

  • Rams send three to state

    HARLAN - Tyler Maxwell, Joey Bryan and Colin White advanced to the state tournament and the Glenwood wrestling team placed third at the Class 3A District wrestling meet at Harlan on Saturday.

    West Des Moines Valley was the district champion, topping runner-up Council Bluffs Lewis Central 247 to 199.5 points. Valley had eight state qualifiers, including six champions. The Titans won three weight classes, and advanced eight to state.

    The Rams finished with 147.5 team points and had state tickets punched for Maxwell at 130 pounds, Bryan at 171 and White at 285.

  • Rams’ season ends in...

    Nearly 40 fouls and 45 free throws.

    Not exactly the picture of pretty basketball but it was exactly the kind of tough, defensive-minded game Glenwood coach Curt Schulte envisioned in his team’s Class 3A, District 15 match up with Creston, who split a pair of games with the Rams this season.

    Unfortunately the Rams’ offense got out of sync early with foul trouble to leading scorer Robby King and never seemed to recover in a 56-39 loss last Monday.

  • White places sixth at state...

    DES MOINES - Glenwood’s Colin White placed sixth at the Iowa State Wrestling Tournament on Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena.

    Waverly-Shell Rock was the Class 3A team champion with 146.5 points. Iowa City West was second with 138.5 points.

    Glenwood’s 11 team points placed them 35th in a four-way tie with Harlan, Mason City and Sioux City East.

  • Wolverines advance to semis with...

    MALVERN - In a near reversal of their eight-person match up on the football field last fall won by Cumberland-Anita-Messina 60-44, the East Mills basketball team ran away from the Cougars for a 60-46 Class 1A, District 15 victory.

    The Wolverines (12-7) forced turnovers on six of CAM’s first nine possessions and opened the game on a 10-2 run. East Mills coach Kevin Schafer felt his team’s quickness and early defensive pressure was the difference against the bigger Cougars.

  • Red hot Lewis Central too much...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Council Bluffs Lewis Central shot a blistering 61 percent from the field and outscored Glenwood 50-22 over the second and third quarters in a 79-42 Hawkeye 10 Conference victory last Tuesday.

    “They really shot it well,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte, whose team dropped its fifth straight game to end the regular season. “They got running on all cylinders and shot 61 percent for the game. Once they started hitting like that we’d have a hand in their face on defense and they’d still knock it down.”
