The combination of an early snow and a home playoff run by the Kiel High School football team meant the new turf field and the bleacher areas needed to be cleared of snow last Thursday afternoon ahead of Friday night’s game. With about five inches of heavy, wet snow on the field, District Administrator Brad Ebert put the call out earlier that day for volunteers from the community to come out with plastic shovels to assist, and about 50 people did so. “This is just another example of a community coming together for its student athletes,” Ebert said. “I am so proud of all of those that played a role in clearing the field. From ages 7 to 76, I think at the end of the night we all felt a sense of pride. I have lived here for a long time and I can honestly say that this type of response by the community does not surprise me. We will continue to do whatever it takes for our students to find success, because we are here for the kids.”
