  • Fourth quarter run lifts Rebels...

    MALVERN - A 17-6 fourth-quarter run proved the difference for East Mills as South Page rallied from a seven-point deficit to post a 52-50 Corner Conference victory on Friday.

    The loss comes in what East Mills coach Brian Bertini calls his team’s most complete game of the year.

    “This was the first time all year I felt like we actually played to win,” said Bertini. “We played four quarters of basketball. The intensity was better, the execution was better. We got better shots. We just missed some opportunities.”

  • Wolverines too quick for South...

    MALVERN - The East Mills boys basketball team hit 5-of-7 three pointers and forced eight turnovers as part of a 24-8 opening quarter in a 81-48 victory over South Page on Friday.

    “I think we stunned them without depth,” said East Mills coach Kevin Schafer of his team's opening quarter. “They have a good starting five, but I could tell they didn't want to go to their bench, so we wanted to keep up tempo and use our quickness to wear them down. They tried to pack it in and play a zone to start it and thankfully we were hitting our shots that first quarter.”

  • Big run, defense stymies...

    The Denison girls basketball team opened the game on a 18-4 run and never looked back in a 56-40 Hawkeye 10 Conference victory over Glenwood on Friday.

    The Monarchs' quickness gave Glenwood fits on both ends of the court as they built a 34-17 hafltime lead. The Rams (5-5 overall, 3-5 in the conference) never got closer that 17 points the rest of the way.

    Chelsea Konfrst led Glenwood with 10 points. Morgan Lucy and Tori Kruse each added eight.

    Abby Mendlik led the Monarchs (9-0 overall, 7-0 in the conference) with 19 points. Amanda Eller added 13.

  • Rams win fourth straight

    Glenwood boys basketball coach Curt Schulte used two adjectives to describe his team’s 56-55 double-overtime victory over Clarinda on

    Saturday.

    “See-saw” and “nail-biter.”

    After battling for four quarters and two overtimes, with neither team leading by more than six points, Robby King’s rebound and layup with five-seconds left gave Glenwood its fourth victory in a row.

  • Glenwood goes 4-1 at Atlantic...

    The Glenwood boys wrestling team went 4-1 in a marathon day of duals on Saturday in Atlantic.

    The Rams earned victories over Clarinda (60-18), Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln (42-32), Treynor (54-18) and the host Trojans (31-30) and a loss to Dallas Center-Grimes (44-27).

    Glenwood coach Matt Dyer was happy to see his team get two conference victories over Clarinda and Atlantic on a long day of wrestling.

  • Glenwood girls can’t...

    The Glenwood girls basketball team couldn’t hold onto a 10-point halftime lead and missed six free throws in the final minute in a 33-31 Hawkeye 10 Conference loss to Clarinda on Saturday.

    The Rams held the Cardinals to just 13 halftime points in building their 23-13 lead but a dismal second half shooting the ball was the difference, said Glenwood coach Leon Portrey.

  • Glenwood gets dual wins over...

    With weather not allowing many teams to make the scheduled Atlantic Invitational on Friday, the Glenwood wrestling team traveled to Atlantic for a dual against Atlantic and Winterset.

  • Rams roll in 53-point rout

    The Glenwood boys basketball team shot a season-high 60 percent from the field and had four players score in double-figures in a 86-33 Hawkeye 10 Conference victory over Shenandoah on Friday.

    Glenwood coach Curt Schulte said the Rams (3-3 overall, 3-2 in the conference) may have had their best offensive night of the season with 83 points, it was the defense his team played that was the real difference.

  • Glenwood girls escape Shenandoah...
