The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association’s Legislative Council voted against a complete split of public and private schools within the Tennessee high school athletic organization at a meeting Wednesday, eliminating one of the five proposals the council was considering.
Here’s how the schools might be divided in the other plans still on the table. It might take a while for a final decision.
