Columbus Grove will not be adding girls soccer as a high school sport. The Putnam County Sentinel reports a motion was made by the school board to add the sport starting next fall, but there was no second. 12 residents came to the board meeting to support the measure, with four speaking in favor of it.
Paul Shank told the board 57 high school girls were surveyed on the subject. The survey showed 23 of the girls surveyed play a fall sport while 27 do not. Those not playing a sport were interested in playing soccer.
Crystal Dunlap also supported adding soccer. She told board members the program wouldn’t have taken away from the marching band, as soccer players could take part in both.
