Friday afternoon Wichita Falls Nighthawks officials announced they are folding the team. The announcement was made on the team's Facebook page. The Wichita Falls Nighthawks played one and half seasons. Team owner and general manager Jerry Hughes writes on Facebook, "We have pushed along through some rough times and have made it through them all. The latest challenge has been to get past the obstacle of having to break contracts with players. This was a very hard thing to do because we have such great appreciation and respect for our athletes. These athletes have played their hearts out for this team, this city, and most of all for you great fans." The Nighthawks won a league championship in the team's first year last year. This season the Nighthawks competed in 5 games going 3-2. They did pick up a forfeit win. For a look at the Facebook announcement, click here http://www.facebook.com/wichitafalls.nighthawks?fref=ts
