BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A proposal to once again combine schools for the Louisiana High School Athletic Association received more votes in favor of it but did not reach the two-thirds threshold for passage.

The proposal by Thomas Byler of North Vermilion was Item 12 on the agenda of the 2020 LHSAA Annual Convention.

The vote was 179-165 but was not enough required for a constitutional change.

Another proposal related to putting select and non-select schools together again also failed to reach the two-thirds vote.

The split between select and non-select schools took effect for the 2012-2013 season.
