  • Rams suffer first conference...

    The Glenwood boys soccer team suffered its first Hawkeye 10 loss of the season last Tuesday with a 2-0 setback to Harlan.

    “This was a tough match, they just out hustled us they won most of the 50/50 balls and they scored when they had to,” said Glenwood coach Mike Artist. “We had our changes but couldn't get one in. They just kept pressing the whole game, they made things happen the whole 80 minutes.”

    Artist said the shots on goal were about equal but his team got unorganized and when that happens, he said, things just didn't work.

  • Happy birthday, Glenwood Booster...

    As the Glenwood Booster Club prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary, Pat Ross, the booster’s club first president that many years ago, can still recall the very first purchase the fledgling club made in 1984.

    The 10-station, Universal Dynamic Variable Resistance weight machine cost $6,515, it required Glenwood Transit to ship all the way from Cedar Rapids and filled about a quarter of the weight room.

    But that complex piece of machinery isn’t really what Ross recalls most. How the club paid for it still makes Ross chuckle more than two decades later.
