Bloom Carroll’s Wade Bartholomew has reportedly told his players today (Wednesday) that he is stepping down as their head coach.
Lancaster Eagle Gazette Sports Reporter Thomas Wilson first reported the breaking story on his Twitter feed.
Bartholomew has compiled a won loss record for the Bulldogs of (68-25) in eight seasons with two straight state semifinal appearances, five MSL-Buckeye titles, and six playoff berths.
In his six post-seasons, his record was (11-6), but is (10-3) the last three seasons.
Bartholomew was quoted in The Lancaster Eagle-Gazette as saying he wants the opportunity to eventually coach at the college level. “I believe right now is a really good opportunity for me to maybe take a bigger job in Ohio, whether it’s high school or college.”
Prior to coming to Bloom Carroll, Wade Bartholomew also served as a head coach at Huntington and Gallia Academy, while also serving as an assistant at Logan Elm.

The Chillicothe Transit System will be implementing changes January 3rd, which include modified and expanded county service.
But along with that, an informational survey showed that many of those that weighed-in for public comments, also want to see the City of Chillicothe utilize a “historic downtown trolley.”
In late July, the Chillicothe Transit System began its experimentation of a Trolley car on loan through the Bloomberg-Harvard Innovation Track. Chillicothe was one of eleven cities across the country participating in the program as part of the Bloomberg-Harvard City Leadership Initiative.
According to an article on the website for The Centre for Public Impact, “The team came into the Track with a goal of making public transit more responsive to potential users, thereby attracting new riders throughout the city and leading to a new program of on-demand public transit. Over the course of the Innovation Track, Chillicothe zeroed in on two potential transit solutions: a dual fixed-route/on-demand public transportation system and a highly popular trolley. After prototyping these ideas with an astounding 400+ residents, the city is now advancing both ideas as pilots.”
