      Valley school named finalist in national fitness challenge

      Fitness could pay off for a Rio Grande Valley school.

      As part of national recess week, Harvest Christian Academy in Hidalgo County is promoting health and fitness this week.

      The Turner Broadcasting Network named Harvest Christian Academy one of the finalists to win $10,000.

      The students are competing against other school across the nation as they play four-square simultaneously.

      "We have a good basketball team, but we don't have a gymnasium," said principal Marisa Boggs. "I don't know if that helped us to be chosen, but I hope so."

      TBN could announce the winner sometime Wednesday.
