Student passes are $20 and an individual pass is $30. Tickets for girls and boys basketball, swim meets, and wrestling matches are $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for students. Junior high and freshman games are $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for students. It was noted that senior citizen passes will no longer be sold; however, previously purchased ones will be honored. Angst asked that the motion on the senior citizen passes be tabled. “I think they should be brought back," he said. “If there's anything I've gotten static over, it is that," he said. “I'm not saying it should be free. Maybe they charge $10 a year or something," he suggested. The motion to table the senior citizen passes did not pass.
