School board considering adding three new sports offerings

Additional athletic opportunities will soon be offered in the Red Bud School District.

The Red Bud Board of Education first discussed the idea at their March meeting, noting that currently wrestling and bass fishing are only offered as club sports here and not official IHSA scholastic sports. They also discussed the idea of adding a bowling team. At that time, the board decided to have High School Athletic Director Kevin Cartee do a feasibility study and report back.

So at the board’s meeting on April 21, Cartee gave his report.
