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."...

Gary Leake Director of Athletics - Former NBA player energizes Highland, 11 Feb 2005 [cached]
"The school support has been the best we've ever had," said athletic director Gary Leake, who has worked at Highland for all nine of its years.
Leake often gets the same question from parents concerning Jennings: Why would a former NBA player want to coach here?
Leake coached Jennings in AAU basketball 21 years ago.
Leake needed a coach, and Jennings wanted a fresh start close to his hometown of Culpeper.
"It was a no-brainer to bring him in," Leake said."It's been great for the kids.He brings a wealth of experience, and he's a great person."
Leake said Jennings is only required to work with grades 4-12, but can be seen showing the younger kids how to dribble and shoot.

"He is a clear-cut candidate for what we were looking for," said Gary Leake, Highland's athletic director.
Leake praised Edwards' efforts."He tried hard, but we did not have the funding to retain him.Our preference is to have coaches that are full-time employees.Waymond did a great job putting Highland girls basketball on the map."
As for replacing Allen, Leake is zeroing in on a candidate capable of continuing Allen's Highland legacy.
