The Glenwood girls and boys swept the team titles at the 20th annual Co-Ed Ram Relays last Tuesday.


The boys more than doubled runner up Council Bluffs St. Albert in the team scores, 222 to 110. The Glenwood girls racked up a decisive 206 to 122 win over second place Shenandoah.

The win gives the Glenwood boys undefeated home meets in their careers.

“I’m very proud of our kids and especially our seniors,” said Glenwood coach Mark Starner.  “By winning the meet, they’ve remained undefeated at home throughout their track careers and how exciting for them on Senior Night to continue that string of wins.  They’ve worked hard to attain that goal.”

The Rams earned gold in the high jump (Mitch Bowden), shot put (J.J. Hahn), long jump (Gage Shatava), the 400-meter run (Derek Jones), the 110-meter hurdles (Dane Kruse) the 200-meters (Grant May), the 400-meter hurdles (Jones), the 800-meters (Jared Cook), the 4x100-meters, 4x200-meters, the 4x400-meters, the 4x800-meters, shuttle hurdle relays.

The Glenwood girls earned eight golds, including individual wins in the shot put (Cassie Kruse), the 100-meters (Kecia Caudill), the 200-meters (Caudill), the 400-meters (Molly Dean), the 100-meter hurdles (Miranda Ruth) and the 4x100-meter, 4x400-meter and shuttle hurdle relays.

“The Rams competed well and the performances were some of the best of the season so far,” said Glenwood coach Brad Rasmussen. “The coaching staff is truly proud of the team and we know they are coming together.  We still have our work cut out for us as we are coming towards the championship season.”

Glenwood hosts the state qualifying track meet for boys and girls at Ram Memorial Field on Thursday at 4 p.m.
