    Try telling that to the two teams on the court.

    Class 3A, No. 6 Glenwood battled Nebraska Class B, No. 6 ranked Omaha Skutt Catholic for the better part of three and a half quarters before falling late in a hard-nosed, slugfest 67-58 loss in a game that had all the atmosphere of the post-season.

    The Glenwood girls opened the game on a 13-2 run and clung to its lead the rest of the way to grind out a 45-35 win at Creston last night in Hawkeye 10 Conference girls basketball.

    The Rams (6-12 overall, 4-5 in the conference) overcame some second quarter shooting struggles in the wire-to-wire win despite the Panthers cutting the lead to four points on two occasions.

  • Glenwood wins Hawk-10 title

    COUNCIL BLUFFS - The last time the Glenwood wrestling team sat atop the team standings at the end of the day at the Hawkeye 10 Conference wrestling tournament, most of its current roster were in kindergarten.

    On Saturday, those wrestlers grew up, with three winning individual titles, as the Rams snared their first conference title since 2006, out-distancing runner up Creston 237.5 to 201 in the team standings.

    For Glenwood coach Brad Asche the title was a long time coming.

  • F-M takes third at Corner...

    If you’d have told Fremont-Mills coach Steve Raymond his team would miss 17 free throws in the fourth quarter, he would not have given his team a betting chance of winning.

    Good thing Raymond isn’t a gambling man.
