Cornerstone Christian Academy was scheduled to join the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in a few selected sports this season, but the school has decided not to participate.
The Bulldogs were to join volleyball now and boys’ basketball this winter, but with a decrease in enrollment, the private school decided a move back to the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association would be best.
“We simply don’t have enough students to compete, so we felt it would be in the school, and our student’s, best interest to go back to the KCAA and compete with schools more our size,” said Julie McDonald, the school's athletics director. “We will offer a full range of sports again. We’re not planning on dropping anything.”
McDonald added that the school may look at a move to the KHSAA again later, but as of now, it’s not in the plans.
“If the school builds to a substantial number of high school students, we’ll look into it,” she said. “We checked with the KHSAA when we decided to pull out and made sure we weren’t burning any bridges. They assured us we weren’t and that we’d be welcomed back if, and when, we’re ready. Right now we just need to make sure we have enough students, there is no timeframe on moving to the KHSAA.”
