    The Glenwood girls built a 33-22 halftime lead and hung on late in a 57-44 victory over Council Bluffs St. Albert in Hawkeye 10 Conference basketball Saturday.

    “I was pleased with how we played overall and being 1-0 in the conference is always good,” said Glenwood girls coach Brian Rasmussen. “I think catching St. Albert when we did, on back to back travel nights for them, worked out.

  • Glenwood gets a bounce back win

    Coming of its first loss of the season, Glenwood bounced back to put together it’s “most complete” effort of the season in a 61-43 victory over Council Bluffs St. Albert Saturday.

  • Knight’s get defensive in win over East Mills

    A smothering Fremont-Mills’ defensive effort limited East Mills to just nine first half points in a 47-23 Knight victory in Corner Conference girls basketball last Tuesday in Tabor.

    The Knights (2-0 overall, 2-0 in the conference) used their aggressive, often times full-court, man-to-man defense to make the Wolverines (1-2 overall, 1-1 in the conference) uncomfortable all game long.

    Fremont-Mills’ coach Brett Weldon said the defensive approach was something his team just started deploying this year.

  • Wolverines rally on road to down Fremont-Mills, 52-43

    It was win number three for East Mills and number 400 for Coach Kevin Schafer Tuesday.

    The Wolverines used a 12-2 second half run to rally past Fremont-Mills for its third win in as many tries in the 52-43 victory and, in the process, notched Schafer’s 400th career coaching victory.

    The game, which the Wolverines did not lead in until late in the third quarter, had the intense feeling of a January Corner Conference match up.

  • 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 used a 20-11 third quarter run to turn a 12-point lead into a rout and improve to 2-0 on the season with a 73-51 victory over Creston in a boys non-conference basketball tilt Friday in Glenwood.

    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.

  • Hot-shooting Yellowjackets sting Rams in opener

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

    The Yellowjackets knocked down 10-of-26 three-pointers and shot 18-of-25 at the free throw line in a 64-48 victory in Glenwood.

    For first-year Glenwood head coach Brian Rasmussen, the game felt and looked a lot like a season-opener for a team that’s still learning.
