Welcome to Custer County Athletics!
Statement of Philosophy
Activities are considered an integral part of the school’s program of education, which provide experiences that will help students physically, mentally and emotionally. The element of competition and winning, though it exists, is controlled to the point it does not determine the nature or success of the program. This is considered to be educationally and psychologically sound because of the training it offers for living in a competitive society. Student-athletes are stimulated to want to win and excel, but the principles of good sportsmanship prevail at all times to enhance the educational values of contests. We believe that participation in activities, both as a player and as a student spectator, is an integral part of the students’ educational experiences. Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the team, to the student body, to the community and to the students themselves. In their play and their conduct, students are representing all of these groups. Such experiences contribute to the knowledge, skill and emotional patterns that they possess, thereby making them better people and citizens.
Meet Activities Director, Dominick Vergara
I am delighted to begin my 2nd year at Custer County District High School. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to nurture and support a dynamic learning community that works collaboratively to strengthen the academic and social achievement of students and the relationship between home, school, and community.
Before coming to Miles City, I had the opportunity to spend 2 years as the Activities Director, Assistant Principal, and Health Enhancement Teacher at Elder Grove Schools (Billings, Montana), 1 year at Custer High School as the Athletic Director/Health Enhancement Teacher (Custer, Montana) and 3 years at Rocky Mountain College, as an Admissions Counselor. I began my teaching career at Thompson Falls High School (Thompson Falls, Montana) in 2008. I obtained my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership at Rocky Mountain College ('15) and another Master’s degree in Sports Management from Montana State University-Billings ('11). I did my undergraduate work at Black Hills State University ('08). My wife Katy, daughter Emily, and I are proud to be part of the Miles City community.
