DANVILLE — The Danville Blue Devils can now add wrestling to their list of varsity sports.

The Danville school board approved a measure that will create a school wrestling team.

“This is a great addition to the school,” Danville athletic director Doug Selvey said. “It’s always a good thing when you can add a new varsity sport.”

In Monday’s meeting, the school board agreed to use funds from donations to purchase mats and equipment needed for wrestling. Many of the other things needed are already there, such as weights, gym space — and interested athletes.
