NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WMC) - Fairley High School and Westwood High School were both present Thursday at the Control Board’s meeting for the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association.

The schools attended the meeting in Hermitage in hopes to appeal their restrictive probation status.

The board voted to remove the probation for both schools for the current season after both boys’ basketball programs were placed on a restrictive probation status for the 2019-2020 school year.

The TSSAA says the programs were on a probationary period following an “unsportsmanlike incident” during a tournament in January.
