  • Titans end Rams’ season in...

    For the second time in eight days, Council Bluffs Lewis Central’s Ashtyn Miller seemed to have Glenwood’s number.

    The Titan hurler, who held the Rams to one run on four hits in an 7-1 victory June 29, was even better in Saturday’s Class 4A, Region 2 semifinals in Council Bluffs.

    Miller scattered four hits and did not walk a batter to shutout out the Rams in a 4-0 victory.

    As good as Miller was, Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton’s team wasn’t patient at the plate and it showed.

    Lexi Lander tossed a no-hitter and smacked a three run home run to lead West Monona to an 11-0 victory over Fremont-Mills in the Class 1A, Region 8 quarterfinals in Onawa last Tuesday.

    The Knights could never catch up to the hard-throwing sophomore. Lander finished with 10 strikeouts and walked just one in the five inning victory.

    Lander also went 2-for-3 at the plate with three RBIs and a run scored. Macie McCall and Kylie Henschen each added two hits.

    The Rams (5-11) got by A-D-M 10-7 and downed LeMars 6-4.

    “We had two pretty good outings from our pitchers, Eli Bales and Michael Radford. “It was somewhat different to previous games this week, but they both pitched really well for us Saturday.”

    Glenwood’s Avery Blasdel, Mia McCorkle and Kendall Bardsley all earned first team recognition on the All-Hawkeye 10 Conference Girls Soccer team released last week.

    The Rams trio was joined on the first team by Council Bluffs Lewis Central’s Grace Guidry, Isabella Smith, Alissa Pomrenke, Rachel Cushing, Mikayla McCart and Hadley Hill, Council Bluffs St. Albert’s Makenna Shepard, Teagan Blackburn and Ellerie Tarbox, Denison’s Alex Mohr, Harlan’s Kylee Hinz and Creston’s Kalan Bloodgood.

  • Glenwood bounces back from...

    Sydney Biermann and Erin Stanley each smacked home runs for Glenwood in a 16-6 softball victory in five innings at Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson Friday.

    The Rams (10-1), just one night after being no-hit in a 10-0 loss to Council Bluffs Lewis Central, were aggressive at the plate all night against the Yellow Jackets (4-4). After scoring five first inning runs, Glenwood added seven more in the fourth in  a game they never trailed in.

  • Titans down Rams in Hawk-10...

    Council Bluffs Lewis Central pitcher Jake Powell limited Glenwood to just two hits in an 11-1 Titan victory in Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball Thursday.

    Glenwood coach Kurt Schulz said he thought Powell threw well but the junior hurler was helped by his team’s lack of competitiveness at the plate.

    “He threw well but we didn’t swing well,” Schulz said. “I was little disappointed in our effort offensively.”
