The Glenwood 7th grade teams hosted the Clarinda Cardinals last night.  In the 2nd game of the 8th and 7th grade double header.  Because of low participation there was only one game, won by the Rams 24 – 0.

The Rams deferred their choice to the 2nd half and held the Cardinals to a 3 and out.   The Rams then went on a 65 yard drive that ended with a 3 yard touchdown run by Cameron Martea (30) with 1:07 left in the first quarter.  2 point conversion was a 3 yard run by Eathan Eiseman (18) making the score 8-0.

In the 2 quarter the Rams found the end zone when Chase Razor (10) ran 16 yards, the 2 point conversion was fumbled into the end zone recovered by an unknown Ram making the score 16-0 with 3:04 on the clock.

The game was held scoreless by both teams in the 3rd and 4th quarters, until Razor ran for a 13 yard touchdown with 6:19 on the clock.  Eiseman ran the 2 point conversion in for the final score of the game. The Rams will host the Atlantic Trojans next week at 4:15.

The 8th Grade Football A Team lost their season opener to a good Clarinda Cardinal team.  The Rams fought through the first half trailing 12-16. The Rams scoring opportunities came on a Jack Johnson Kickoff return for a touchdown and touchdown pass from Korbin Pelzer to Pierce Dalton.   The Rams were only able to find the endzone one more time in the second half with another Pelzer touchdown pass, but this time to slot receiver Aaron Christian.  


The Rams were unable to stop the Cardinal running attack in the second half and finished the game in a 18-40 defeat.


The B Game the Rams were able to score twice on touchdown runs from Marcus Duran and Connor Wear, but would eventually fall to the Cardinals.




An electronic device has been found and turned into the office.  If you are missing one please stop by the office to identify and claim.

The MS Drama production Nov. 9, 2021: School House Rocks Live! Jr.

This energetic musical follows Mr/Ms Mizer, a young school teacher, who is nervous about his/her first day of teaching. He /she tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs such as "Just a Bill," "Great American Melting Pot" and "Conjunction Junction" bring his lesson plans vividly to life.


School House Rocks Live! Jr. has 8 lead roles (speaking and singing parts) plus a large chorus ensemble with opportunities for small solos and character roles. 

The two audition sessions for this year's show will be on Sept. 13 & 14.
