  • Wolverines notch first win of...

    Kassidy Croghan tossed a complete-game three-hitter and East Mills cruised to its first victory of the season with a 10-5 win over Whiting last Wednesday.

    Croghan was sharp in the circle all night. The senior lefty fanned a season-high 13 and allowed just three singles in the win.

    Miah Urban and Emily Williams keyed an East Mills (1-11 overall, 0-6 in the Corner Conference) offense that matched a season-high in runs and finished with eight hits. Urban singled and tripled, scored two runs and stole three bases.

  • Rams take two from Cyclones on...

    The Glenwood baseball team went on the road and earned a key sweep of a big rival Thursday.

    The Rams smacked 27 hits and got just enough pitching to overcome six errors to sweep Class 3A, No. 4 ranked Harlan 7-4 and 12-11 in Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball in Harlan. The sweep is believed to be the Rams’ first of the Cyclones since 2010.

  • Knights go 1-2 at Shenandoah...

    Fremont-Mills went 1-2 at the Shenandoah Softball Tournament Saturday at Shenandoah’s Sportsman Park.

    The Knights (6-10 overall, 3-1 in the conference) dropped a pair of decisions to Missouri Valley 9-5 and to Stanton 9-7.

    The lone win came against the host Fillies in a 6-4 Fremont-Mills victory. The host Fillies would go on to down Stanton 11-3 to win the tournament title.

  • Rams fall in T.J. Classic...

    After a pair of dominating wins to open the Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson Classic Softball Tournament, Glenwood’s bats went quiet in a 3-2 loss to Earlham in the championship game.

    The Rams (8-8 overall, 5-4 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) defeated Sidney 19-1 and Bedford 15-0 to open the tournament Saturday.

  • Glenwood smacks 10 hits in...

    Brooklyn Taylor and Sydney Biermann smacked three hits each for Glenwood in a 11-5 out-of-conference softball victory over Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson Friday in Glenwood.

    The Rams (7-4 overall, 3-0 in the conference) recorded 10 hits in all and got a complete-game victory from Biermann in the circle. Biermann scattered nine hits and struck out six in the win.

    “T.J. battled, which they have a tendency to do,” Stanton said. “They made Syd work, all through their lineup.”

  • Titans get by Rams in extra-...

    Council Bluffs Lewis Central took advantage of two walks, a hit-by-pitch and two hits to score four runs and rally in the eighth inning for a 10-7 victory over Glenwood in Hawkeye 10 Conference baseball in Glenwood Thursday.

    The Rams (3-4 overall, 2-3 in the conference) were tied at 6-6 heading into the extra-frame when Glenwood began to “unravel,” according to head coach Kurt Schultz.

  • Rams’ Schultz named All-District

    Glenwood’s Abi Schultz has been selected by the Iowa Girls Coaches Association for its all All-District Soccer Teams.
    Schultz, a senior, was tabbed for the Class 2A West first team selected by region coaches. Schultz scored one goal this season serving primarily as the Rams’ sweeper on defense.

    Council Bluffs Lewis Central led the way with five first team selections.

  • Smith, Taylor fourth at state

    Brielle Smith and Brooklyn Taylor are the highest placing tandem in Glenwood history at the Iowa State Girls Tennis Tournament.

    The Ram duo won their first two matches, reached the semifinals and went on to place fourth in Class 1A Doubles competition at the University of Iowa Tennis Center in Iowa City Thursday.

    Smith and Taylor, both seniors, opened up their state run with a bang, knocking off No. 3 seeded Kendall Evans and Josie Condon 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 in their opener to advance to the quarterfinals.

  • Titan surge ends Rams’ season

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - Maiah Williams’ goal that cut Council Bluffs Lewis Central’s lead to 2-1 in the minute was significant – in more ways than one.

    Firstly, it was the Rams’ first goal of any kind against Lewis Central in five seasons, which was good news.

    Secondly, the goal seemed to get the attention of No. 7 ranked and defending champion Titans’ on a windy night on their home field, which turned out to not be such good news for Glenwood.

  • Glenwood goes 1-2 at Harlan...

    A sluggish start and a slumping offense proved too much to overcome for Glenwood at the Atlantic Softball Invitational Saturday.

    The Rams (4-3) dropped their opener 7-0 to Carroll before downing Audubon 7-3 and then falling in the capper 6-0 to Harlan.

    The tournament was delayed by two hours due to rain and Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton said her team never seemed to recover.

    “We were never quite right,” said Glenwood coach Kylee Stanton. “We weren’t quite firing on all cylinders.”
