Deerfield-Windsor forms GHSA study committee

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 

Deerfield-Windsor has formed a committee to look at whether the school should move to the Georgia High School Association in two years.

Headmaster Dave Davies says Deerfield-Windsor's decision will not be based on if two schools in Macon decide to leave  

Depending on whom you talk with, Deerfield-Windsor's decision on leaving the GISA is really not that hard.

"A number of people tell me this decision is a no brainer. The problem is it is split about 50/50. Some think it is a no brainer to stay. Some think it is a no brainer to go," said headmaster Dave Davies.

Some believe it is a no brainer for Deerfield-Winsdor to leave the GISA for the Georgia High School Association if Macon schools Tattnall Square and Stratford decide to join Mount de Sales in making such a move in two years.

Deerfield-Windsor headmaster Dave Davies says the loss of two or all three of the Macon schools will make it hard for the Knights to field competitive schedules and could increase travel for games.

"Because we have outstanding rivalries with them. It is a pretty comfortable trip up the road to Macon to play Mount de Sales, Stratford and Tattnall," said Davies.

Davies says of all the GISA schools considering moving to the GHSA, Deerfield-Windsor is in the most difficult position because there are no other GHSA private school members located near the school.

Another issue is the GHSA cannot guarantee which region Deerfield-Windsor would compete if they joined.

Something that could create issues for several sports that surrounding Class A public schools may not compete.

"We would have to look at which of the GHSA schools in southwest Georgia even offer tennis, swimming and wrestling. If they do not, what that would mean in terms of travel. It could actually increase the travel for those sports," said Davies.

The final decision may not be easy but the Knights do have options.

If Deerfield-Windsor does choose to join the GHSA, they can always come back to the GISA.

The deadline for schools to apply to the GHSA is April 1.
