New Armstrong school sports uniforms cost less than expected
Uniforms for the Riverhawks teams at Armstrong Junior-Senior High School will cost nearly $20,000 less than anticipated.
The Armstrong School Board on Monday is expected to accept an $83,000 bid from Dallas-based BSN Sports to supply customized blue, white and orange Nike uniforms for teams at the school, which will open next year. The district had expected to spend about $100,000 on the uniforms.
“It's always welcome to see something come in cheaper than expected,” school board President Joe Close said.
Buying the sports uniforms completes outfitting for student activities at the school. In May, the school board approved paying $62,184 for 120 marching band uniforms.
