My family and I moved from up North to NC. My oldest daughter goes to Holly Springs High School. She is a varsity track runner in her old school. She did everything she was supposed to for this school. However, the athletic director will not let her try out. I believe this is because we are not from the South. All I can say is if you are relocating, be careful in choosing the schools.
