Trapshooting, dance

The committee gave its support to fielding a trapshooting team as an official high school sport. Participation in the sport has recently been offered through the community education and has had strong participation. In the most recent spring season, Princeton’s club team finished 16th in the state among large schools, activities director Darin Laabs said. The committee also discussed outfitting the team with uniforms, like it would with any varsity sport. The discussion now moves on to the finance committee.
The formation of a dance team was not met with similar enthusiasm. The long-term dedication to a dance program was called into question, as was the failed attempts in the past to start up a dance program. The activities committee suggested a start-up program offered through community education. If the program succeeds at the community education level, the board could consider elevating dance to a varsity sport in the future. In the meantime, Laabs will schedule opportunities for a dance team to compete on an exhibition level at some future conference meets.

    Excellent news on the Trap Shooting side – the kids last year did a great job and we are looking forward to this growing in the district! As much as I would love to see a dance team I hope they are not discouraged and keep the dream alive by starting up a community education program and the school district and community continue to back them.
