  • Carroll hands Rams loss on senior night

    Carroll hurler Julia LaRue struck out eight and scattered four hits in a 4-1 victory over Glenwood to spoil senior night in Glenwood Friday.

    “Compared to the first time we saw them, I felt like we walked into the box with a lot more confidence,” said Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton. “We put a lot of balls in play, it just seemed like we weren’t getting the timely hit we needed. We were hitting at people. Their pitcher threw well, harder than some (pitchers) we’ve seen and defensively they were just solid.”

  • Knights earn share of Corner Conference title

    Fremont-Mills dropped the opening game of a double-header to Stanton 9-7 but bounced for a 9-0 win in the nightcap to secure a share of the Corner Conference regular season title last Tuesday.

    The Knights (10-14 overall, 6-2 in the conference) will share the conference crown with Sidney (13-9 overall, 6-2 in the conference).

    The Vikings trailed 2-1 heading into the bottom of the third when they plated four runs to take the lead for good.

  • Strong pitching carries Glenwood to road win

    Pierce Harrington carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning in a complete-game one-hit victory for Glenwood in a 4-0 win in Creston last Tuesday.

    Harrington held the Panthers hitless through 6 1/3 innings before the Panthers’ Bryce Fitzgerald singled with one out in the seventh.

    As is the custom, Schultz didn’t say a word about a potential no-hitter to his senior right-hander as the hitless streak stretched into the seventh.

  • Biermann three-run homer helps Rams to 6-3 win

    Sydney Biermann’s three-run home run in the top half of the seventh inning put Glenwood ahead for good in a 6-3 victory over Council Bluffs Lewis Central Friday in Hawkeye 10 Conference softball.

    With the win the Rams (17-12 overall, 12-6 in the conference) secured a season sweep of the Titans.

    Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton said she had a feeling Biermann was due heading into her team’s final at bats.

  • Big fifth inning lifts Cowgirls to Corner Conference crown

    Sidney scored eight runs in the fifth inning to down Fremont-Mills 11-6 and win its third straight Corner Conference Softball Tournament title Friday in Sidney.

    The Knights (8-13) opened the game with a three-run first inning and starter Kendall Reed took the 3-0 lead and cruised into the fifth inning nursing a three-hitter. But the Cowgirls (11-9) got their offense clicking there.

    Jolie Sheldon smacked a bases loaded doubled to drive in three runs and Danica Lauman drove in two more as part of the eight-run fifth.

  • Glenwood miscues prove costly in 10-3 loss at CB Lewis Central

    Glenwood could not overcome stranding 12 runners on base and committing four errors in a 10-3 loss to Council Bluffs Lewis Central Friday in Council Bluffs Friday.

    The Titans slapped 10 hits while remaining unbeaten in the Hawkeye 10 Conference.

    “This was kind of typical for Lewis Central, they always hit the ball,” said Glenwood coach Kurt Schultz. “They had a couple big innings that hurt us and we had some miscues too that may not have shown up as physical errors but we didn’t get them out when could have.”

  • Knights rally for conference title

    For 6 2/3 innings, Donnie Weis and his Stanton teammates had Fremont-Mills’ number.

    Weis was masterful on the mound, scattering five hits and two earned runs while striking out seven Knights to take a 4-1 lead into the seventh inning. But the right-handed senior hit his pitch limit with two outs in the frame, forcing the Vikings to the bullpen.

    That’s when the Knights sprang to life.

    “There was ease in Casey’s manner as he stepped into his place, there was pride in Casey’s bearing and a smile lit Casey’s face. And when, responding to the cheers, he lightly doffed his hat, no stranger in the crowd could doubt ‘twas Casey at the bat.”

    Reading never occurred to Judith Oldham as a volunteer option.

  • Wolverines notch first win of season

    Kassidy Croghan tossed a complete-game three-hitter and East Mills cruised to its first victory of the season with a 10-5 win over Whiting last Wednesday.

    Croghan was sharp in the circle all night. The senior lefty fanned a season-high 13 and allowed just three singles in the win.

    Miah Urban and Emily Williams keyed an East Mills (1-11 overall, 0-6 in the Corner Conference) offense that matched a season-high in runs and finished with eight hits. Urban singled and tripled, scored two runs and stole three bases.
