    Good for Derby. She’ll probably turn them into a powerhouse.

      How do you turn a powerhouse into a powerhouse?

        The only thing that will stop Derby from continuing to be a powerhouse is splitting the school up. They're like Lawrence High in the early 90s.

          There aren't even any rumblings of a split are there? I know Derby has been very much against doing so for years.

          At some point, there will come a time that it will probably have to happen, but I think they can still keep carrying on for a while. Not sure at what point enrollment gets to a point where they just can't ignore it.

              Are those numbers lower than they were 50 years ago? When I was at East, I thought our graduating class was around 900 and the other two classes were a little bigger. I guess I could get my yearbook out and count the students.

              Edit: I guess our graduation class was less than 700, assuming everyone had their pictures taken.

                Are they? Hadn’t noticed. Guess I don’t follow those not in the GWAL.

                  I guess they've actually only won one state title, but they've been in the title picture just about every year in recent memory.

                    When I lived in a Dallas suburb, they built a 2nd high school. Instead of 2 4 year schools, they had 2 2 year schools so they could maintain their football team stocked with juniors and seniors.

                      Now hearing that she will not be the coach for 21-22 but will take over for 22-23. Couldn't get out of her contract and asst. coach will lead the team this year.
