Glenbrook To Apply for Membership to LHSAA
Written by Mark Chreene on June 3, 2020
In a letter from James Madden on behalf of the Board of Trustees at Glenbrook School, the school has announced plans to apply for membership with the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) by the 2022-2023 school year. In the letter, Madden cited the “onerous travel for our students, families, and staff” as well as another round of redistricting this fall in the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools (MAIS), which will possibly further increase travel required by the different school sports because Glenbrook will most likely be forced to move up in classification. Also noted was the recent popularity of 8-man football, which has eliminated a lot of the local schools that Glenbrook has historically competed with. Madden stated in the letter that remaining in MAIS “is no longer in the school’s best interest.” Madden also thanked Headmaster Darden Gladney and Athletic Director David Feaster for their help in guiding them through the transition.
The timeline for the application for Glenbrook to apply for LHSAA membership is:
- June 2020-Application decision made by the LHSAA Executive Committee.
- 2020-2021-Glenbrook School fulfills second and final year of commitment to the MAIS.
- 2021-2022-Glenbrook School participates in first year of membership under probation.
- 2022-2023-Glenbrook School is a full-fledged member of LHSAA.
