There have been some major accomplishments in the past year for Starkville High athletics.
SHS athletic director Stan Miller also is excited about the future.
Miller and the Yellowjackets are focused on the move up to Class 6A, then there is the addition of several new coaches as well as the bringing in of a completely new sport.
Before SHS embarks on the new territory, Miller assessed the current state of the athletic program.
“Looking at the last two years, Starkville school district athletic program rates in the top 5 in the state,” Miller said. “There is no doubt and anybody you talk to will tell you where we are. We won the 5A All-Sports trophy last year. I love that as an athletic director because I look at it as not that I did it, but I’ve got tremendous athletes, tremendous facilities and tremendous coaches. There are schools that have great football or basketball, but we put the whole package on the table and I am real excited about that.”
