That’s what the Ishpeming School Superintendent is saying after dozens of people showed up early Saturday morning to shovel snow off of the football field before the Hematites hosted a playoff game against Breckenridge. Superintendent Carrie Meyer says the heavy snow that blanketed the field happened quick on Friday and they didn’t have much time to ask for help.
“On Friday, we saw the weather coming, and our athletic director, Terry Roberts, got out on the radio, and posted on Facebook, that we would need some help,” Meyer said. “Whoever could help, come with your shovels and blowers at 8 a.m. Well, people were excited to come and help that they were showing up at 6 a.m. It’s no wonder that we have so students who are so great, on and off the field, because these are the role models they have to look up to, each and every day.”
She says the Ishpeming Fire Department and local businesses also lent a big hand as the school hosted the playoff game Saturday afternoon. Breckenridge went back downstate with a 12-to-6 victory, ending Ishpeming’s perfect season.
