Devils Lake eliminating 3 varsity sports

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP)--THE DEVILS LAKE SCHOOL BOARD HAS VOTED TO ELIMINATE THREE VARSITY SPORTS AND ALSO CHEERLEADING AT THE END OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR. KZZY RADIO REPORTS THAT THE BOARD'S MONDAY NIGHT DECISION TO ELIMINATE GIRLS' SOCCER, BOYS' AND GIRLS' GOLF AND CHEERLEADING CAME AFTER A FAILED MOTION BY BOARD MEMBER JEFF FRITH TO PUT THE PROGRAMS ON TWO YEARS OF PROBATION IN AN EFFORT TO INCREASE PARTICIPATION. THE BOARD EARLIER TOOK THAT ROUTE WITH WRESTLING AND GIRLS' HOCKEY. BOARD PRESIDENT STEVE HALLDORSON SAYS ELIMINATING THE THREE SPORTS AND CHEERLEADING ISN'T AN EASY DECISION, BUT IT WILL SAVE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT ABOUT $40,000 PER YEAR.
