The 7th grade volleyball team took on Red Oak last night at home.  


The A team lost all three sets but showed improvement from the first time playing the Tigers.  Last night they were led by Maddie S on the service line.  She went 8 for 9 with 1 ace.  Marley M, Maddie S, Olivia W, and Adalynn M each recorded a kill.  


The B team played solid volleyball but lost 16-25, 21-25, and 12-15.  They were led by Libby W and Payton S on the service line.  Addy T and Liv L contributed with many great passes.  


The C team lost their first two sets 8-15 and lost their third 2-15.  They were led by Lynnea L on the service line.  Audrey T and Kylie H were the best passers of the night.


The Glenwood 7th grade teams hit the road last night, to take on the Harlan Cyclones.  The A team lost 8-28, but the B team won 14-0.

 The young Rams had a good day moving the ball, unfortunately timely mistakes were the downfall of the Rams.  The Cyclones took advantage of 2 mistakes in the first half scoring on an interception and after recovering a fumble.  The Rams did manage to score just before the first half ended when Ben Carlo (2) hit Chase Razor (10) for a 16 yard touchdown pass, Eathan Eiseman added the 2 point conversion, making the 1st half score 8-14.

In the 2nd half the Cyclones added 2 more scores, making the final 8-28.

The B game was all Rams, with a 15 minute running clock 5th quarter, the Rams dominated scoring on both of their possessions.  The first was a 2 yard run from Grahm Newberry (42).  With Brandt Mower (14) scoring the 2 point conversion.  The second score was from a great run by Mower, weaving his way through an on slot of Cyclones scoring from 25 yards out.  The 2 point conversion failed, making the final 14-0.

The Rams will hit the road again, and play their final game of the season, in 2 weeks when they travel to Creston to take on the Panthers. 

The 8th Grade Football team hosted the Harlan Cyclones last night and fell short on the scoreboard in a tightly contested contest, 20-26.  The Rams would get on the board first when Scott Reed took the ball and scored on a 12 yard toss.   Jose Diaz's PAT kick was good to the Rams up 7-0 midway through the 1st.   The Cyclones would score the next two touchdowns to put the score at Half, 7-12 in favor of the Cyclones.    


Harlan would score early in the third quarter, but the Rams answered when Korbin Pelzer hit Pierce Dalton on a 44 yard touchdown pass midway through the 3rd quarter. Diaz's  PAT kick was good, making the score 14-20.   The Cyclones would score again late in the 3rd to make the score 14-26 at the end of three quarters of play.   The Rams started out the 4th quarter with fireworks as Scott Reed threw a 53 yard touchdown pass to Pierce Dalton to close the gap to 20-26.  Diaz's PAT attempt was wide right after an errant snap making the score 20-26 early in the fourth quarter.


The Rams defense would hold Harlan from scoring the rest of the quarter and would come up with a big turnover with 3:00 to go in the game.  The Rams offense would move the ball but would eventually turn the ball over on downs making the final score 20-26 in favor of the Cyclones.  The A team moves to 2-2 on the season and will play Lewis Central next Thursday at LC.


The 8th Grade B team moved their record to 3-1 on the year posting a 20-0 victory over the Cyclones.  Jaden Hill would get the scoring going right away with a 14 yard touchdown run over the left side, making the score 6-0 early in the game.  The PAT run was no good. The Rams would score two more times on long runs of Marcus Duran's 44 and 43 yard carries.  Shane Pratt would score the PAT on the final touchdown to make the final 20-0.  The Rams B team defense smothered the Cyclone offense both on the ground and in the air.   Ian Connell intercepted a Cyclone pass in the second half that sealed any Harlan scoring threat.  The Rams will travel to Lewis Central next Thursday to take on the Titans.
