Baseball is a game of failure.
This is no secret to anyone who knows the game; who h as been around it as long as Jerry Pomplun has.
Pomplun, who finished his 9th season as Broken Bowâ€™s Legion baseball coach this past summer, chalked up yet another successful season.
In a game full of failures, Broken Bow- the smallest school under the Class B roof,-has seen plenty of successes under Pomplun.
In his nine seasons, Broken Bow has been to the district championship six times, winning three of them.
A new season of league bowling is set to get underway. A meeting of the local Bowling Association will take place Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012, beginning at 7 p.m. at Pleasure Lanes in Broken Bow.
Broken Bow has made a number of hires and moves within its departments for this upcoming school year. Among them are Mike Miller, who will become the new head golf coach and Ryan Wetovick will be the new head coach of the boys basketball team. Miller will be assisted by Tim Johnson while Mike Buckles returns to coaching as the assistant boys basketball coach.
