ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Deerfield-Windsor School will not join its Macon rivals in GHSA.
The school's Board of Trustees voted this evening to stay in GISA.
a stunning decision since many felt Deerfield-Windsor would join Mount
de Sales, Stratford and Tattnall Square in moving to the GHSA in two
Parents and school officials though were concerned
about the fact there are no private schools currently competing in the
GHSA that are close to their campus.
"Some of the comments that
we heard from parents and from board members is that we are an
independent school, an independent college preparatory school, and that
we want to compete against other independent college preparatory
schools," DWS Headmaster Dave Davies said when reached by phone.
says the school will keep its study group on the issue intact, and he
hopes to convince some former GISA members who have jumped ship to
Here is a statement from the school:
consideration, the Deerfield-Windsor School Board of Trustees has voted
to continue our association with the Georgia Independent School
Association for athletic and literary competition for the next two-year
The Board considered all seventeen varsity sports, one-act
play, and literary competition in making its decision. Parents and head
coaches were surveyed, and a Study Group examined possible Regions and
Areas as well as our likely competitive situation in each activity.
Chair Mark Lane said, "Deerfield-Windsor is in a unique geographical
location for an independent school. Although there are numerous GISA
member schools nearby, the nearest GHSA independent school is 80 miles
away. We are a private school and believe that the GISA serves our
overall needs at this time. We will continue to monitor our competitive
situation over the next two years, and the Board will again consider
our membership in 2015."
DWS Headmaster Dave Davies commented
that, "we are concerned about all of the uncertainties in the GHSA at
the present time. The public/private split is less than a year old and
is tenuous at best, talk of a possible enrollment multiplier has been
considered by State legislators, and our Region cannot be determined. In
many of our athletic and literary programs, the level of competition in
the GISA is more than sufficient to challenge our athletes and
students. In those sports where we are more dominant, we will work
harder to find opponents, including those out of state, who will
challenge our teams."
