NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The state’s high school athletic association has voted to continue with the six-class system for football playoffs that has been in place since 2009.

The Board of Control of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association voted 5-4 Monday to continue to play in three regular-season classes with each of those classes split for the post-season through at least 2016.

The Tennessean reports that prior to the 2009 season, Division I football had been under a five-class system with schools in each of those classes grouped into eight regions.

The top four teams from each region advanced to the postseason.TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress said he knew the vote would be close.
