  • Rams Reign

    The season before Curt Schulte took over as head coach, the Glenwood basketball team won just one game.

    Friday night - 12 years and a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears later - the Rams became state champions.

    A brilliant game plan that had Glenwood spacing out a taller, longer Oskaloosa team and challenging every shot defensively proved the difference as the Rams pulled away late for a 66-62 win before a reporter-estimated crowd of 8,000 at the Wells Fargo Arena in the Class 3A state finals.

    He enjoyed science and biology classes in junior high and high school, but as a child Robert Fryzek never envisioned a life devoted to practicing medicine.

    “When I was in the eighth grade, they had us write down what we wanted to be. I wanted to be a conductor on a train,” the 83-year-old and soon-to-be retired Glenwood physician recalled during a recent interview. “I was in the Boy Scouts for one year in the ninth grade. I only got one merit badge and that was for safety and health, so it must have been in the back of my mind.”

  • Rams take two from Cyclones on road

    The Glenwood baseball team went on the road and earned a key sweep of a big rival Thursday.

    The Rams smacked 27 hits and got just enough pitching to overcome six errors to sweep Class 3A, No. 4 ranked Harlan 7-4 and 12-11 in Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball in Harlan. The sweep is believed to be the Rams’ first of the Cyclones since 2010.

  • Rams’ Schultz named All-District

    Glenwood’s Abi Schultz has been selected by the Iowa Girls Coaches Association for its all All-District Soccer Teams.
    Schultz, a senior, was tabbed for the Class 2A West first team selected by region coaches. Schultz scored one goal this season serving primarily as the Rams’ sweeper on defense.

    Council Bluffs Lewis Central led the way with five first team selections.

  • Titans get by Rams in extra-innings

    Council Bluffs Lewis Central took advantage of two walks, a hit-by-pitch and two hits to score four runs and rally in the eighth inning for a 10-7 victory over Glenwood in Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball in Glenwood Thursday.

    “T.J. battled, which they have a tendency to do,” Stanton said. “They made Syd work, all through their lineup.”

  • Glenwood goes 1-2 at Harlan tournament state alive

    A sluggish start and a slumping offense proved too much to overcome for Glenwood at the Atlantic Softball Invitational Saturday.

    The Rams (4-3) dropped their opener 7-0 to Carroll before downing Audubon 7-3 and then falling in the capper 6-0 to Harlan.

    The tournament was delayed by two hours due to rain and Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton said her team never seemed to recover.

    “We were never quite right,” said Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton. “We weren’t quite firing on all cylinders.”

  • Titan surge ends Rams’ season

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Maiah Williams’ goal that cut Council Bluffs Lewis Central’s lead to 2-1 in the minute was significant – in more ways than one.

    Firstly, it was the Rams’ first goal of any kind against Lewis Central in five seasons, which was good news.

    Secondly, the goal seemed to get the attention of No. 7 ranked and defending champion Titans’ on a windy night on their home field, which turned out to not be such good news for Glenwood.
