A suburban Fort Worth teen is waiting to find out if she will remain suspended from the Burleson High School drill team because of language posted on her MySpace page. Dallas Fort Worth television station KTVT reports 16-year-old Lindsey Wessel received an e-mail from school officials indicating she was suspended from the drill team.

A statement from the school district to radio station KRLD-AM said Wessel had received "eight demerits for the language used on the site."

Wessel's mother, Alicia Smock, appealed the one-game suspension during a meeting Tuesday with school district officials.

Dallas Fort Worth television station KXAS reports school officials said their final decision will be made by 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Burleson is 12 miles south of downtown Fort Worth.
