Gary Leake, president of the DAC, said he harbors no ill will toward MMA for leaving mid-year, but acknowledged others within the league do.
Leake said the conference received two sportsmanship violations complaints this year and has taken action to see to it that such instances don't occur again.

Current DAC president and Highland School athletic director Gary Leake said the conference has well-rounded schools with good reputations outside of athletics.
"We do not allow schools to make first contact and recruit athletes," Leake said.
Leake can't disclose which schools are interested and said there is a better chance of the league staying the same size or decreasing in the near future.Financial constraints, not a disenchantment with the conference, have led to three undisclosed schools to have informal talks with the league's administration in the past year about dropping out of the DAC.
"We are trying to determine where to draw the line," Leake said."We do have some very small schools in our conference that have had a hard time competing against bigger schools.When you have 13 schools, you are going to have that.Enrollment is just one of the factors that make this conference what it is."
According to Leake, the DAC has survived through good times and bad thanks to the leadership and the work that former president and current Emmanuel A.D. Allen Edgar put in after Westhoff.
Leake said the league can be one of the best private school conferences in Virginia, regardless of whether it grows, gets smaller or stays the same.And that has to do with the opportunities, not just the competition, that the DAC provides for member schools.
"It's more of an opportunity to participate," Leake said."...

Meet the Director: Gary Leake
In the winter of 1996, Gary visited Highland School to interview for the Upper School Athletic Director position.
"I am very proud of where our program is today as well as where it is headed " said Gary. "I view program success as a partnership between student athletes, coaches, teachers, parents and school personnel. We are not a win at all cost school, but have developed a method that emphasizes the quality of the experience over the quantity of wins and losses. I truly believe that through participation, Highland student athletes will have the opportunity to gain life long lessons in such areas as self discipline, work ethic, character, time management, commitment and personal training habits."
Gary graduated from Shepherd College in 1985, where he was an All Conference baseball player for the Shepherd Rams. Within his 27 years of experience, he has coached 7 different sports, has worked in both public and private school systems and has served as an Athletic Director for 19 years. Gary has held an administrative position with the Delaney Athletic Conference for 12 years, the past 8 as the league's president. He is also the founder of the state's coed golf tournament and serves on several state committees. His wife, Renee was a former softball coach for Highland and his son Jordan graduated from Highland in 2011 as a letterman in both basketball and baseball. In addition, he has a niece Nicole, who graduated from Highland in 2012 and Caite, a current fourth grader.
