In addition, Jack Bulebush bowled a game of 100+ pins over average in the roll-off (a career-high 211).  As the roll-off is bowling’s version of a playoff, games bowled there do not count toward regular season statistics.  In recognition of Jack’s postseason performance, he was awarded a vintage USBC 100-pin over average watch (donated by George Christian) during the banquet.
Sheffield Juniors were coached during the 2023-2024 season by Scott Martin and Mark Sembower.  Additional staff included Mike Kampmeyer (counter help, lane maintenance, coaching), Beth Martin (finance, league coordination/administration), and Debbie Thompson (snack salesperson extraordinaire).  And, of course, this youth league would not be possible without the continued support of Jeannie, Rick, and Zach D’Agostino at Sheffield Lanes.
Finally, the league would like to acknowledge the contributions of outgoing staff members Mike Kampmeyer (who has been involved with Sheffield Juniors for 23 years!) and Scott & Beth Martin.  Each of you has made a difference in the lives of so many of our local youth bowlers over your time helping out with this league.  Thank you!

Hello Hopewell! While I am not originally a Hopewell native, it has been my home for over 12 years. My wife and I have three beautiful children that all play Hopewell sports including baseball and softball. My wife and I are both active in coaching our Children's teams. I am a member of the Hopewell Youth Baseball Board of Directors and you will probably see me out at the fields at least a few days a week. Most recently coaching my youngest sons TBALL team.
