Games cancelled due to weather conditions are all but a thing of the past for Starkville High.
When the football, soccer, and track teams as well as the band take to its respective fields and oval, it will be on a brand new surface and it isÂ one that makes athletic director Dr.Â Stan Miller extremely proud.
â€śThis is an exciting moment for athletics as a whole,â€ť Miller said. â€śWhat this facility brings to us for the first time in many, many years is the opportunity to be flexible. We can host events. We donâ€™t have to cancel events. I canâ€™t say enough for Shaw, which worked so closely with us on this project to get us where we are today.â€ť
