Less than a week before high school football camps open up, the status of the Imani Christian football team is up in the air for the 2013 season.
School officials notified the WPIAL a few weeks ago that they would not be able to field a team this season. District officials in turn told the school that since schedules had already been distributed, they should do everything they can to field a team this fall.
Official word is expected on Monday, August 19th whether the Saints will fulfill their schedule.
If Imani Christian can not field a team, it becomes a scheduling conflict for the other eight teams in the WPIAL Class A Black Hills Conference because it would be almost impossible to fill that open date for Bishop Canevin, Brentwood, California, Carlynton, Chartiers-Houston, Clairton, Fort Cherry, Monessen and Serra Catholic.
