The Starkville Oktibbeha School District boasts a winning tradition where our coaching staff and nearly 600 student athletes expect excellence every day, in every field of play. This same excellence demonstrated on the field or court extends to the classroom. All 25 SHS varsity sports are honored as MHSAA Scholar Athlete Teams because they maintained a team GPA of 3.0 or higher. Each year, Yellow Jacket athletes take excellence to the next level, gaining athletic scholarships to continue their education at community colleges and four-year universities.

With students competing in 27 sports and 47 teams from 7th to 12th grade, the goal of Yellow Jacket Athletics is to deliver exceptional results by embracing a culture of engagement that creates value for our students, staff, and community while continuously improving our process.
