  • Glenwood upset in district...

    The Rams’ reign has come to an end.

    A year after winning the Class 3A state championship, Glenwood struggled shooting the ball and couldn’t get the stops they needed in a district opening round loss to Creston Monday night.

    The Panthers got 24 points from Kylan Smallwood and 18 each from Cael Kralik and Brand Baker in the 66-47 victory to end Glenwood’s season. Creston will play Denison in Thursday’s district finals back in Glenwood.

  • Rams’ Mower fourth, Carter sixth...

    DES MOINES - Glenwood seniors Brett Mower and Noah Carter capped their wrestling careers with their first medals at the Iowa State Wrestling Tournament last weekend.

    Mower placed fourth at 182-pounds and Carter was sixth at 195-pounds in the consolation round Saturday morning at the Wells Fargo Arena.

    The Rams’ third state qualifier, heavyweight Hunter Haggstrom, also a senior, lost his two opening day matches and was eliminated at state on Thursday.

  • Scarborough’s free throw has...

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - There’s seven seconds on the clock, the score tied at 42-42 and Elle Scarborough had just missed the first of two free throw attempts.

    And Glenwood coach Brian Rasmussen wasn’t concerned at all.

    The Rams’ coach never doubted for a second Scarborough – a 68 percent free throw shooter – wouldn’t knock down the second free throw.

    And he was right.

  • Rams' Mower, Carter in...

    A pair of Glenwood wrestlers are guaranteed to medal after day two at the Iowa State Wrestling Tournament in Des Moines.

  • Rams’ Mower, Carter into...

    Glenwood’s Brett Mower and Noah Carter both won their opening round matches in convincing fashion on the opening day of the Iowa State Wrestling Tournament today at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.

  • Glenwood sends three to state

    Glenwood is sending three wrestlers to this week’s Iowa State Wrestling Tournament in Des Moines.

    The Rams’ 182-pound Brett Mower and 195-pound Noah Carter won their weight classes and heavyweight Hunter Haggstrom was second to punch their tickets at the Class 3A, District 5 state qualifying meet in Glenwood on Saturday.

    In Glenwood Saturday, Waukee qualified 10 wrestlers for state and was the district team champion with 253 points. Dallas Center-Grimes was a distant second with 177.5 points.

  • Rams rally once again for...

    Down 10, three minutes to go.

    No problem.

    The Glenwood girls, once again, proved their mettle and a propensity for big comebacks, rallying from 10 points down with three minutes to go force overtime and pull out a 73-68 win on the road at Denison Friday night.

    The Rams (15-4 overall, 9-1 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) trailed the No. 7 rated Monarchs (18-2 overall, 8-1 in the conference) for much of the game and found themselves trailing 60-50 with just over three minutes to go.

  • Fremont-Mills overcomes slow...

    A less that stellar first quarter that saw Fremont-Mills and Orient-Macksburg combine for eight points and 13 fouls gave way to a Knight rout in the second quarter.

    Fremont-Mills put up 29 points in the second frame and ran away for a 59-24 victory in the Class 1A, Region 7 opening round Thursday in Tabor.

    The Knights (13-9 overall, 10-4 in the conference) led 5-3 after that rugged first quarter. A defensive change up in the second seemed to ignite their offense.

  • Denison tops Rams for share of H...

    Big conference games don’t come much bigger.

    Glenwood went on the road to Denison with a share of the Hawkeye 10 Conference title on the line and came up short in a 64-51 loss in front of a raucous crowd Friday night.

    With the win the Monarchs (14-5 overall, 8-2 in the conference) share the conference title with Council Bluffs Lewis Central.

  • Ram Wrestling’s Finest Hour

    Bob Dyer had just ripped the seam of his pants.

    In front of 11,000 people.

    And he didn’t care one bit.

    The former longtime Glenwood wrestling coach didn’t have time to be embarrassed.
    “When I jumped in the air, I came down and split my pants,” Dyer recalled. “But I didn’t really care at that point – I was excited.”
