  • Glenwood’s Smith wins Hawk-10 singles title

    Brielle Smith won the No. 2 single brackets and the Glenwood girls were third in the team standings at the Hawkeye 10 Conference Girls Tennis Meet last week.

    Due to rain and cold, the event, scheduled for one day in Denison, was stretched to two days with the finals wrapping up Wednesday in Red Oak.

    Red Oak won the conference title with 30 points and a pair of championships from Sophie Walker in the No. 1 singles brackets and from the No. 2 doubles team of Chloe Johnson and Kaylee Philby.

    With a school-record 16 event qualifiers this year after Friday’s state qualifying meet at Carroll – where the Rams won nine events and the regional title – needless to say, a scoreless finish on the blue oval at Drake this year appears unlikely.
