Teutopolis Sports Backers presented a $10,000 check Tuesday, July 15 to Andy Johnson, Teutopolis High School Athletic Director. Presenting the check to Johnson, is Beth Hartke, President; Kevin Ruholl, Treasurer; and board members Theresa Bushur and Al Konkel. This money will be used to help in the renovations to the THS weight room. The roof over the THS weight room was damaged this past winter from the excess snow and ice. This caused pipes to bust and caused severe water damage to the weight room.

This donation will benefit all athletes, since all the athletic programs can utilize the weight room. The sports backers are gearing up for another year of fundraising, kicking it off with their annual family and business membership drive. Along with the Fall Men’s Steak Stag, and a new gun raffle will start later this fall. Any questions, or people who want to volunteer through sportsbackers, can email: sportsbackers@ttown.k12.il.us
