  • Wolverine boys, girls split with Griswold on hardwood

    The East Mills boys turned the ball over a season-high 26 times, shot just 36 percent and yet, had the ball in a tie game with just :04 left.

    But another turnover ended the Wolverines’ hopes as Griswold withstood a late rally with a pair of free throws with .07 seconds left and pulled out a 48-46 boys basketball victory Friday.

    “We shot poorly and didn’t play well and yet put ourselves in a position to win it,” said East Mills coach Kevin Schafer. “We just couldn’t pull it out.”

  • Red Oak girls edge Glenwood, 49-45

    Kate Walker’s three-pointer with just over three minutes in the game lifted Red Oak to a 49-45 victory over Glenwood in Hawkeye 10 Conference girls basketball Friday.

    With 3:08 left in the game and the Rams (5-3 overall, 4-1 in the conference) up 43-41, Walker sank a go-ahead three-pointer to give Red Oak (7-2 overall, 6-0 in the conference) a 44-43 lead, which they would not relinquish.

    “It put the pressure on them to answer,” Red Oak girls basketball coach Dan Martinez said after the game.

  • Glenwood boys earn sixth straight victory

    Gage Shatava, Jacob Lewis and Brady Wheeler combined for 51 points for Glenwood in a 69-51 road win at Lourdes Central Catholic in Nebraska City Saturday.

    The Rams (6-2 overall, 5-1 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) jumped on the Knights early, leading 34-19 at halftime. Glenwood saw their lead swell to as many as 20 in the second half.

    “We got out and ran a little bit,” said Glenwood coach Curt Schulte. “We’re scoring a lot of points and our transition game has really been our strength.”

    A 21-14 loss to LSU in the Outback Bowl wasn’t the way sophomore Nate Meier and his Iowa teammates had hoped to finish their season, but the former Fremont-Mills football standout says the future is bright for the Hawkeye program.

    Iowa’s 8-5 record was a vast improvement over a 4-8 campaign in 2012 and Meier believes the Hawkeyes will only get better as they begin off-season preparations for 2014.
