The Trophy is in Town Thanks to Ram Basketball

For the first time in Glenwood’s history the state basketball trophy has found a resting place at Glenwood High School’s trophy case. Glenwood was by far one of the most impressive teams that stepped in Wells Fargo a week ago.The Rams defeated three teams that each had a potential division one player on their team. On their way to the state title Glenwood defeated #5 Norwalk 67-58, #1 Cedar Rapids Xavier 69-63 and #3 Oskaloosa 66-62. Glenwood’s crowd was praised all week long for their following in Des Moines. Seniors Andrew Blum and Nate Mohr were both awarded First Team All-State. Andrew Blum was named tournament MVP in Class 3A. The week will go down as one of the best in Glenwood’s history without a doubt.

 

I apologize for the lack of coverage over the last couple of days but my wife and I were lucky enough to bring our son Henry Allen Tucker into the world on Thursday just two hours before Glenwood’s semifinal game. Since then we have had a lot of sleepless nights but everyone is healthy and doing well. While I could write about the stories from last week for the 100th time, I figured it would be fun to look back at some of the moments throughout the year. Below are some of the articles I posted throughout the year that I think are fun to go back and look at now that Glenwood is STATE CHAMPIONS!

 

Enjoy!
