BE wrestlers get unscheduled trip

Expanding the campus of Utah State University in Brigham City will be of great benefit, not only to students who attend, but to the city as well.  Ron Frandsen, District business administrator, explained to the school board members the expectation of continuing the Interlocal Cooperative agreement with the Redevelopment Agency of Brigham City.

Five local entities are involved in the agreement, including the school district, Brigham City, Box Elder County, Mosquito Abatement and the Water Conservancy District.  They provide financial support for development of the Old Indian School property for USU expansion through continuation of the tax increment program.

Also included in the agreement is the proposal to use the majority of taxes paid by any future development on the property to help provide matching funds to construct the building.  Hopefully funds will be available through future legislature allotment.

Despite a district-wide policy stating otherwise, the Box Elder High School wrestling team will be taking a trip to Reno, Nevada, for a tournament there.

Policy 5323 concerning out-of-state travel limits high schools to two trips per year.  Box Elder high principal Darrel Eddington has awarded those trips to the Drama Club and to the orchestra.

Coach Mike Ripplinger called this team the best he has ever had and this trip would bring an opportunity for them to wrestle in front of coaches from colleges and a possibility for wrestling scholarships.
