  • Strong pitching carries Glenwood...

    Pierce Harrington carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning in a complete-game one-hit victory for Glenwood in a 4-0 win in Creston last Tuesday.

    Harrington held the Panthers hitless through 6 1/3 innings before the Panthers’ Bryce Fitzgerald singled with one out in the seventh.

    As is the custom, Schultz didn’t say a word about a potential no-hitter to his senior right-hander as the hitless streak stretched into the seventh.

  • Knights earn share of Corner...

    Fremont-Mills dropped the opening game of a double-header to Stanton 9-7 but bounced for a 9-0 win in the nightcap to secure a share of the Corner Conference regular season title last Tuesday.

    The Knights (10-14 overall, 6-2 in the conference) will share the conference crown with Sidney (13-9 overall, 6-2 in the conference).

    The Vikings trailed 2-1 heading into the bottom of the third when they plated four runs to take the lead for good.

  • Carroll hands Rams loss on...

    Carroll hurler Julia LaRue struck out eight and scattered four hits in a 4-1 victory over Glenwood to spoil senior night in Glenwood Friday.

    “Compared to the first time we saw them, I felt like we walked into the box with a lot more confidence,” said Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton. “We put a lot of balls in play, it just seemed like we weren’t getting the timely hit we needed. We were hitting at people. Their pitcher threw well, harder than some (pitchers) we’ve seen and defensively they were just solid.”

  • Shen’s Doyle stymies Knights in...

    Blake Doyle tossed a four-hitter on the mound and drove in three runs at the plate for Shenandoah in a 12-1, five-inning victory over Fremont-Mills in non-conference baseball Friday night in Shenandoah.

    Doyle kept the Knights off balance all night. The sophomore struck out six, walked just one and scattered four hits in the complete-game victory. At the plate the sophomore singled to drive in three runs and drew a walk.

    Owen McCunn and Devin Morelock picked up two hits each for Shenandoah.

  • Knights rally for conference...

    For 6 2/3 innings, Donnie Weis and his Stanton teammates had Fremont-Mills’ number.

    Weis was masterful on the mound, scattering five hits and two earned runs while striking out seven Knights to take a 4-1 lead into the seventh inning. But the right-handed senior hit his pitch limit with two outs in the frame, forcing the Vikings to the bullpen.

    That’s when the Knights sprang to life.

  • Glenwood miscues prove costly in...

    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.”

  • Big fifth inning lifts Cowgirls...

    Sidney scored eight runs in the fifth inning to down Fremont-Mills 11-6 and win its third straight Corner Conference Softball Tournament title Friday in Sidney.

    The Knights (8-13) opened the game with a three-run first inning and starter Kendall Reed took the 3-0 lead and cruised into the fifth inning nursing a three-hitter. But the Cowgirls (11-9) got their offense clicking there.

    Jolie Sheldon smacked a bases loaded doubled to drive in three runs and Danica Lauman drove in two more as part of the eight-run fifth.

  • Biermann three-run homer helps...

    Sydney Biermann’s three-run home run in the top half of the seventh inning put Glenwood ahead for good in a 6-3 victory over Council Bluffs Lewis Central Friday in Hawkeye 10 Conference softball.

    With the win the Rams (17-12 overall, 12-6 in the conference) secured a season sweep of the Titans.

    Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton said she had a feeling Biermann was due heading into her team’s final at bats.

  • Rams deal Atlantic first Hawk-10...

    Glenwood is right back in the Hawkeye 10 Conference chase.

    After an inconsistent start that saw them open the conference slate 5-4, the Rams have won six in a row, including Thursday’s big sweep of conference-leading Atlantic.

    The Rams (15-8 overall, 11-4 in the conference) went on to the road and took 6-4 and 10-8 decisions from the Trojans (21-5 overall, 12-4 in the conference) to push them into third place in the standings and give them momentum in the downhill stretch of the season.

  • 13-run fourth inning carries...

    Cade Van Ness hit two three-run home runs in a 13-run fourth inning and Michael Radford tossed a four-hit complete game for Glenwood in a 15-4, five-inning victory over Atlantic in Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball Thursday in Atlantic.

    The Rams (11-7 overall, 9-3 in the conference) sent 16 batters to the plate in the decisive fourth inning.
