Edgewood board votes to stay in AISA

Edgewood Academy’s Board of Trustees voted on Tuesday that the school’s athletic program would stay in the Alabama Independent School Association.

In an 8-5 vote, the board chose to stay in the association without comment. Edgewood joined AISA as one of the charter members in 1969.

Athletic director Bobby Carr had formed a special committee to investigate the idea of  Edgewood moving into the Alabama High School Athletic Association beginning next school year (2016-17). The committee provided a letter stating that it had met with officials from both associations as well as school officials from programs that had made the switch in the last several years. Those schools included Prattville Christian Academy, Faith Academy in Mobile and Mobile Christian Academy.

Carr was in favor of the move and was disappointed in the decision.

“The vote didn’t go the way I would have liked but apparently God has other plans for me and this program,” Carr said. “I have to do what’s best for my kids. I’m going to give my best to these guys because they deserve the best.”

Reports that the players and coaches chose not to practice in protest of the decision were incorrect. Carr said his team practiced at 6 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

“We’ve got only so many practices left so we need to get ready for Escambia Academy,” he said.

Members of the board and the school’s administration withheld comment.
