Parents Working To Bring Back Barbour County Sports

Posted: Updated:

The Barbour County Board of Education tackled its budget Monday night while the Barbour All-County Sports Organization scheduled events to bring back middle school sports.

The organization has worked with businesses to generate the $34,000 the board needs to reinstate the coaches ever since it voted to stop funding middle school coaching positions.

Volunteers hope the board can find some money, but said they'll keep working regardless.

"We aren't planning on that. We're looking forward to raising the entire $34,000. If they come up with some, great, if not, then we'll still be OK," said BACSO's Lori Wetzel.

The organization's next fundraiser will be an elimination dinner this weekend at the Philippi City Building.
