  • Rams rout Atlantic in twin bill

    Molly Bryan threw her first career no hitter and smacked a first inning homerun as the Glenwood softball team downed Council Bluffs St. Albert 10-0 in a five inning win.

    Bryan, a freshman, struck out eight and did not walk a batter in the win. She was also 3-for-3 at the plate with five RBIs.

    Nicole Charland added a double and a homerun and drove in two runs.

    “This is the hitting I’ve been waiting for,” said Glenwood coach Tim Stanton. “We’d been hitting good these last few games but our power really showed up this game.”

  • Rams improve to 9-0

    Michaela Moore scored three goals as the Glenwood girls soccer team remained undefeated on the season with a 5-0 win over Creston on Friday.

    The Rams (9-0 overall, 5-0 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) led 3-0 at halftime despite being without head coach Brad Silvey. Silvey, who had a prior commitment with his other duties as an assistant soccer coach at Iowa Western Community College, arrived at halftime to his team’s comfortable lead.

  • Glenwood second in triangular

    Glenwood girls golf team placed second in a two team triangular meet at the Glenwood Golf Course last Tuesday.

    Shenandoah placed first with a score of 214, Glenwood was second with a score of 240 and Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson was third with a score of 258.

    Medal honors went to Alex Curry from Shenandoah with a 39.

    “She played well today and made several good putts and up and downs for par,” said Glenwood coach Kathy Konigsmark.

    Runner-up and placing second was Thomas Jefferson's Emily Storey with a 47.

  • Rams third at Relays

    A good day for the Glenwood relay teams and a strong individual day from Lydia Bienlien helped lead the Glenwood girls to a third place at the Ram Relays on Thursday.

    The Rams' 76 team points trailed second place Harlan's 145. Atlantic was the team champion with 161 points.

    “Everybody did their part to make this a competitive meet,” said Glenwood coach Brad Rasmussen.

    Lydia Bienlien won a gold medal in the 400-meters, placed third in the long jump and ran the anchor leg of the Rams's second place finishing sprint medley relay.

  • The Running Mom

    Most mother's of four have little energy to crawl into bed after a typical day of being Mom. Kelly Knight on the other hand gets her four kids – ranging in age from 8 to 18 – off to school and her day has just begun.

    Knight is an Iowa Western Community College sophomore studying to be a paramedic. Oh, and she happens to be ranked nationally in the 3,000-meters for the Reiver track team.

    To say Knight, 37, took an unlikely path to college long distance runner is putting it mildly.

  • Glenwood drops second straight

    Rams drop second straight

    The Glenwood girls tennis team dropped its second straight dual on Tuesday with a 7-2 loss to Atlantic.

    Glenwood won its opening two singles matches with strong performances by No. 1 Alexa Bledsoe, who defeated the Titans' Laena Frederickson and No. 2 Lydia Sperling to defeated Megan Hoehns 8-4. But the two wins would be the Rams' only victories in the dual.

    The Titans won the final four singles matches and all three doubles matches.

  • Fuller's record-setting day...

    The Glenwood boys track team braved cold weather and a wet track to win a pair of gold medals at the Sioux City Relays on Saturday.

    The Rams' Johnny Fuller had little trouble adjusted to the cold weather winning first place in the 3,200-meters in 9:58.50. Fuller's time was a personal-best and 15 seconds better than the Glenwood sophomore record set in 1976 by Jim Whitcomb.

  • Rams dominate Kuemper 5-2

    For the second game in a row the Glenwood boys soccer team used an overpowering offensive game to score five goals, this time downing Kuemper Catholic 5-2 in Carroll on Thursday.

    The Rams (4-2 overall, 2-0 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) took some time to adjust to the Knights' “unusual” style of play, but once they did, said Glenwood coach Mike Artist, his team played well.

  • Rams fourth at Shenandoah

    The Glenwood girls golf team place fourth at the Shenandoah Open Golf Tournament on Thursday.

    Charley Arno placed tenth to lead Glenwood . Shenandoah's Alex Curry shot 81 for top individual honors.

    “This was the first time the girls played 18 holes,” said Glenwood coach Kathy Konigsmark. “They started getting tired on the second nine. Most girls shot a good round and the second round was worse.”

  • Rams stay perfect at 8-0

    The Glenwood girls soccer team finished 3-0 at the A-D-M Invitational Soccer Tournament this weekend in Adel to improved to 8-0 on the season.

    The Rams, ranked No. 11 in Class 2A, came out a little flat in the tournament opener, said coach Brad Silvey, but bounced back in a 3-2 opening round win over Hoover on Friday.

    “Our focus wasn’t there to open the game,” said Selvey. “Maybe it was being out of town or staying the night in a hotel, but we didn’t stay focused.”
