• Futbol Club asks school district to sanction sport at HS level
BROOKINGS – The Brookings Futbol Club wants the Brookings School District to sanction soccer as a high school sport by the fall of 2014.
A representative for the club presented the request at a Brookings School Board work session this week and plans to formally ask for the change during a future regular board meeting.
Right now, high school soccer in Brookings is a club sport that uses the Bobcat mascot. Athletes and their families pay to play.
