  • East Mills off to 2-0 start

    The East Mills boys basketball team held their second straight opponent to abysmal shooting and fewer than 40 points in a 64-31 victory over Clarinda Academy Friday in Clarinda.

    The Wolverines, who improved to 2-0 on the season with the win, held the Eagles to 14 first half point while taking a 26-14 lead into intermission. The third quarter would see that lead balloon to 50-20 by the end of the frame.

  • Glenwood girls wins second straight

    Glenwood built a 38-21 halftime lead and cruised to a 67-52 victory over Creston in Hawkeye 10 Conference girls basketball Friday.

    “I thought we had a pretty good effort from start to finish,” said Glenwood coach Brian Rasmussen. “We really put our focus on the first four minutes and the last four minutes of each half. We wanted to set the tone and I definitely think we did that to open the third quarter. We’ve done that the last two games. It really set the tone for us to play our game the rest of the game. The girls did a nice job.”

  • Rams make ‘strides’ in 73-51 win

    Glenwood coach Curt Schulte, who was critical of his team’s defensive effort in the season-opening victory over Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson on Tuesday, said he saw his team improve from game one to game two.

    A red hot Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson shooting night and a slow start spelled doom for Glenwood in its girls basketball opener last Tuesday.
