Lacrosse at Arabia Mountain in DeKalb?

While doing research on the Dunwoody lacrosse issue I took a glance over at the GHSA web site.  You can do the same.  Click HERE.

Look over on the right side of the web page where it shows the high schools and divisions.

Dunwoody parents and students were told self-funding was a no-no and that if they (the school district) allowed Dunwoody to have sanctioned lacrosse teams, then other schools would want teams and the county school district would be obligated to foot the bill.  Well, turns out, the Arabia Mountain High School (a beautiful campus with great academics) in south DeKalb is SANCTIONED already by GHSA.  They did not field a team, but they are sanctioned.  Arabia Mountain is only a couple of years old, so it's hard to believe someone (perhaps the person telling Dunwoody kids "No") was not aware of Arabia Mountain's sanctioned boys' and girls' lacrosse teams.

I have no issue with Arabia Mountain being sanctioned.  Hopefully they will have enough student interest next year to field a team.  The issue I do have is Dunwoody not being allowed to be sanctioned.

Look for Dunwoody lacrosse to get county approval within the next week or two.  Kids, practice this summer 'cause it looks like you'll be in Area 4 playing Marist and St. Pius X.
