School board adds one sport, holding on others

Despite the storm and power outage on the evening of May 19, the Red Bud Board of Education still held their meeting. One of the biggest items at the meeting was the addition of an official school sport.

At their last two meetings, the board has discussed the fact that wrestling and fishing are club sports for the district, but not official IHSA scholastic sports. And in considering making those into official sports, they had also considered adding bowling.
