Devils Lake cuts four school activitiesComments Off
DEVILS LAKE, N.D. – After months of debate, the Devils Lake school board voted Monday to cut four high school athletic programs.
The four activities being cut are girls soccer, boys and girls golf and cheerleading.
Officials said three of the programs were struggling, but one of them was well-supported.
“When you take something away from students it’s really hard,” said School Board President Steve Halldorson about the cuts.
Student board member and senior soccer player Mylasha Artis said she felt bad for her soccer teammates.
“To know that my younger teammates, peers aren’t going to be able to enjoy the sport that I love as much as I do, is really hard for me.”
Halldorson said shrinking enrollment made it harder to sustain sports teams.
“The student body is down 200 students, so that kind of plays into it too,” he said.
All the programs didn’t necessarily suffer from a lack of participation. Boys golf was eliminated along with girls golf so that Devils Lake would stay compliant with Title IX, which requires the same number of activities for boys and girls.
