A successful fundraiser from the Marshalltown High School boys swim team meant their head coach Mike Loupee got a new cut for the new year.
The boys team raised $7,215 for new deck chairs for the MHS pool and new decks coats for the team, well past the goal Coach Loupee set at $3,000 to be able to cut his hair.
The money was raised in several different ways including working school concession stands, Pizza Ranch tip night, collecting change and donations from current Bobcat parents and former swimmers. Loupee had been growing out his hair for three years.
“It’s humbling that whenever there has been a need the Bobcat swimming family has always been supportive,” Loupee said.
