Clyde-Green Springs football heads to Dayton

CLYDE — Athletic Director Ryan Greenslade led a discussion with the Clyde-Green Springs Board of Education Monday about traveling to Dayton to play a football game.

With the district now in Division IV in football, it is traveling farther for competition. A game with Belmont Sept. 27 was the topic. Greenslade presented a proposal for three charter buses to be used to transport the team to the game at a cost of $1,940 per bus. The tab is being picked up by the Flier Football Foundation and the athletic department. A couple donors have stepped up also.

A fan bus is being organized with a cost of $40-$50 per person.

Board members expressed concern about the how the costs look to voters because the district is attempting to pass a levy.

Board member Matt Jenne reported the district is talking with Energy Optimizers about cost savings for lighting.
