Booster Club honors three coaches for outstanding contributions
On November 1, the KCD Athletic Booster Club and Club President Tom Crockett recognized three KCD coaches for their outstanding contributions during the 2018–2019 school year. John Bahe, Tim Rice, and Kevin Sample were given the Middle School Coach of the Year Award, Varsity Coach of the Year Award, and the Booster Club Service Award, respectively.
John Bahe, head coach of the 5th/6th grade football team, led last year's team to an undefeated season. Coach Bahe continued his success this year as his team won the Henry County League Championship. The football program will receive a $250 grant from the Athletic Booster Club on behalf of Coach Bahe.
Tim Rice is the head coach of the varsity boys golf team, which performed well all season long. Coach Rice led his team to an undefeated season in match play, an All-A region championship, and a fourth place finish at the All-A state tournament. The boys golf program will receive a $500 grant from the Booster Club on behalf of Coach Rice.
The Booster Club Service Award is one of the most prestigious awards given through KCD Athletics and is reserved for those who go above and beyond the call of duty in support of athletics at KCD. This year, the award was presented to Kevin Sample, who has served as a coach, a KCD Booster Club executive committee member, the coordinator of concessions, and as a do-it-all servant for the athletics program. “Our program could not be where it is today without the tireless and unselfish work of Kevin Sample,” stated Athletic Director Dr. Tim Green.
Congratulations to these individuals on their recognition. Thank you for your outstanding work and contributions to the Bearcat community!
