Wrestling and football teams will now separate into public and non-public districts and regions, after a vote by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association, reported NorthJersey.com.
The football proposal, which passed 215-128, will now place all non-public schools into their own conference. The wrestling proposal passed, 216-121 and will now send all non-public wrestlers into their own four districts and one region, meeting with the public schools before qualifiers, said NorthJersey.com.
Many football coaches have supported this vote due to the fact that non-public schools can pool students from anywhere giving them an advantage, said NorthJersey.com.
