Levy lets Battle Ground schools relaunch middle school sports


BATTLE GROUND — Voter approval of a new replacement levy for Battle Ground Public Schools will allow the district to relaunch middle school sports with boys and girls basketball seasons in early 2022, followed by cross country, soccer and other sports in the spring.

Volleyball and track would be introduced in the next school year, followed by wrestling and football sometime in the future.

“The whole intent, here at the central office and by the board, was to provide opportunities for kids,” said Tom Adams, the district’s director of student services and district-level athletic director. “Our middle school kids don’t have those opportunities to participate in middle school sports like districts around us, and they haven’t for years.”
