  • 2017-2018 ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Glenwood's Andrew Blum

  • 2017-2018 ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: East Mills' Janette Schraft

    After winning seven gold medals at state track heading into one’s senior year, it’s easy to imagine the motivation to get better could wane.

    Not for Janette Schraft.

    Not even just a little bit.

    The East Mills junior, who placed second as a team all by herself at the state track meet this spring, never lacks for motivation. She’s spent this summer working out three to fours hours and running more than four miles per day, preparing for the Junior Olympics and the upcoming cross country season.

  • Knights’ season ends in regional quarterfinals

    Lexi Lander tossed a no-hitter and smacked a three run home run to lead West Monona to an 11-0 victory over Fremont-Mills in the Class 1A, Region 8 quarterfinals in Onawa last Tuesday.

  • Titans end Rams’ season in regionals

    For the second time in eight days, Council Bluffs Lewis Central’s Ashtyn Miller seemed to have Glenwood’s number.

    The Titan hurler, who held the Rams to one run on four hits in an 7-1 victory June 29, was even better in Saturday’s Class 4A, Region 2 semifinals in Council Bluffs.

    Miller scattered four hits and did not walk a batter to shutout out the Rams in a 4-0 victory.

    As good as Miller was, Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton’s team wasn’t patient at the plate and it showed.
