  • Clarinda battles back to defeat...

                Glenwood won the first two games but couldn’t hang on for the win as Clarinda battled back from a 2-0 deficit to down the Rams 25-19, 25-19, 18-25, 22-25, 15-13 in Hawkeye 10 Conference volleyball last Tuesday.

  • Wolverines shut out Clarinda...

        Colby Jennings ran for four touchdowns and Austin Sommerla threw a touchdown pass for the East Mills football team in a 42-0 victory over Clarinda Academy on Friday.
        “We really played much better,” said East Mills coach Andy Irwin, a week after the Wolverines’ offense struggled in a 10-7 season-opening loss to Shenandoah. “The effort was there. We did a good job in blocking assignments, and guys who we had to sort of move around the fly last week due to injuries were more in position.”

  • Ram comeback comes up short

        A two-point conversion that would have tied the game with 4:36 and a fourth-down pass with 1:55 remaining both came up short for Glenwood on Friday as Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson escaped Glenwood with a 28-26 non-district victory at Ram Memorial Field.

  • Glenwood boys win Ram Invite

        The meet, delayed from the previous Saturday due to rain, saw the Rams run away from the field led by Fuller’s time of 18:06. Glenwood easily out-paced second place Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson 30 to 56 in the team point standings.
