One day after earning a berth to the Division I district tournament, Bellefontaine’s boys bowling team donned winter coats and grabbed shovels to assist a family in need Saturday morning.
In the aftermath of the winter storm that piled up nearly a foot of snow on the driveways and sidewalks of local residents, the Chieftain squad came together to shovel out the drive of Carolyn and Ted Hoy, who are the grandparents of BHS senior bowler Ryan Carman.
Assistant coach Robby Weikart was approached by a neighbor of the Hoys about the need for assistance with removing snow from the couple’s property.
“I knew exactly the group to pay it forward,” said Weikart.
Along with Reichert, fellow assistant coach Ian Salyer and head coach Tammy Overholser, team members showed up Saturday morning to clear the snow from the Hoys’ driveway and sidewalk.
The team said it was happy to have an opportunity to give back to Mr. and Mrs. Hoy, who have been gracious supporters of the BHS bowling team.
“They have supported the team all season,” said Overholser. “They have bought drinks before several matches and they have bought pizza for the team several times. All of the boys call them grandma and grandpa.”
