  • 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.

    That’s when the Knights sprang to life.
