BATON ROUGE - While high schools in Louisiana are grappling with the decision to separate playoff games between private and public school athletics, one school is already playing under similar conditions.

The Silliman Institute in Clinton is a member of the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools, and their school athletics compete against other independent schools in the association.

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association recently voted to separate high school playoff games into "select" and "non-select." They would compete against each other during the regular season, but split into the two divisions during the post-season.

News 2's Mike Steele will have more on how the system works for them tonight at 5 and 6.
