Update: Christ Academy Won't Play Football in 2012

Wichita Falls Christ Academy told other local athletic directors on Wednesday that they definitely will not field a team this fall.

Wichita Falls Christ Academy Head Boys' Coach Tommy Sugg told Newschannel 6 on July 30 that the Warriors would not be able to field a high school football team at that juncture, due to low numbers.

Shortly after that, he resigned at Christ Academy and moved to Grapevine Faith Christian.

Former assistant Larry Mauldin decided to revisit the decision on Tuesday (August 7), but the next day he informed AD's at Wichita Christian and Notre Dame that the decision would stand.

The Stars tentatively have set up a game at Rockwall Fulton on October 12th to replace Christ Academy on their schedule.

Notre Dame is still looking for a game on November 9th, and Athletic Director Kristin Berend told Newschannel 6 on Wednesday it would be a difficult process.

The Warriors have played three seasons since the school brought back football, most recently going 1-9 in 2011, their first year of TAPPS play.

The move does not affect Christ Academy's standing with TAPPS in other sports.

    Brazil fans have cheered their team in the first and only meeting with players before they travel to the World Cup in Russia, but many others also complained about the squad's lack of contact with local supporters.
