DeKalb bowlers raise money to keep program successful
For the DeKalb boys bowling team, bake sales and 50-50 drawings are almost as important as spares and strikes.
In their second year of existence, the Barbs aren’t receiving any funding from the school, so they have to pay their own way by holding fundraisers and working for tips at amateur bowling meets. While it can be a pain for high schoolers to give up their Saturdays, coach Ernie Pinne thinks working to earn money for lane time and equipment has its upside.
“I think it gives them a little more sense of pride and a little more work ethic,” said Pinne, who is volunteering for the second straight season. “They have some sweat equity in this, and I think that really helps.”
