    April 25, 1984 (30 Years Ago)
    The Trimble County School Board voted last Wednesday to discontinue the varsity football program. Superintendent J.W. Sachleben said the decision was based on a lack of interest in football among the available male students and not enough numbers to play the game.

Two games were cancelled.
