Lady Royals softball team takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The BCHS softball team took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after Wednesday's practice.   They'd been challenged by the Dodge County Lady Indians softball team.  The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was started by a patient with ALS. It's designed to promote both awareness of the disease as well as raise funds.   While being videoed, people douse themselves with a bucket of ice water.  The video is posted to social media with a challenge to someone else.  That person can either accept the challenge, donate to an ALS Charity, or both.

To find out who the Lady Royals challenged, watch the video.
