Starkville High School Athletic Director Stan Miller said there's no reason to appeal the decision by the Mississippi High School Activities Association to place the Yellowjackets in Class 5A, Region 2 last week.
said playing in a region including West Point and New Hope would have cut down on travel, but likes the way his
sports match up with future opponents.
"Looking at all of our sports overall we're going to compete very well in 5A and I'll be disappointed if we're not competing for the all-sports trophy a year from now," Miller
"I think what's going on with Neshoba
, Yazoo City and Canton is ideal," Miller
"I was fortunate at that time to be the principal (at SHS)," Miller
With Woody Barnett being Miller's
athletic director at Pearl
for six years, he
was looking forward to having the Pirates in the same region.
It would have also been a move of family interest as Woody's son Chris is in Starkville
"I would have loved to have seen that," Miller
