Cody Officially Adds Softball as High School Sport

Written by on December 23, 2019

ACCORDING TO THE CASPER STAR TRIBUNE, A PUSH THAT STARTED IN THE FALL OF 2018 CAME TO FRUITION LAST WEEK WHEN THE CODY SCHOOL BOARD UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED ADDING SOFTBALL AS A VARSITY SPORT AT THE HIGH SCHOOL.

ATHLETIC DIRECTOR TONY HULT SAID THE INAUGURAL SEASON WOULD START SPRING 2021 AND INCLUDE 12 TEAMS, LIKELY SIX SPLIT INTO TWO CONFERENCES FOR AN ALL-CLASS SPORT, SIMILAR TO TENNIS. THE ESTIMATED FIRST YEAR COST IS $44,000, WITH SECOND YEAR COSTS LIKELY LOWER WITH FEWER SUPPLIES NEEDING TO BE PURCHASED.

THE COST IS OUTWEIGHED BY THE CODY GIRLS’ OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY A HIGH SCHOOL SPORT AND POSSIBLY EARN A COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP,” CODY PRIDE BOARD PRESIDENT ERIN EVANS SAID. “THIS PUSH HAS BEEN ASSISTED BY MANY IN THE COMMUNITY. AND THE GIRLS WERE ABLE TO LEARN HOW TO PARTICIPATE CORRECTLY IN THE PROCESS TO MAKE A CHANGE.”
