The Robert M. Beren Academy, an Orthodox Jewish high school, was expecting to have to forfeit their game against the Covenant School of Dallas, which was scheduled for 9 p.m. Friday. The school appealed to the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (Tapps), organizers of the event, but the association initially said it was unwilling to change the time of the game.
But on Thursday, Tapps announced it would allow the Beren Academy to reschedule the semifinal game as well as the final – if they win the semi.
The semifinal will be played at 2 p.m. Friday at Nolan Catholic High School in Forth Worth. The championship game would take place at 8 p.m. Saturday, according to Tapps director Edd Burelson, who confessed the changes were made after his organization had received hundreds of e-mails asking them to let the Beren kids play.Jewish Press News Briefs
