The N.C. Independent Schools released its high school football playoff pairings Sunday, and they looked a lot different than in past years.
The state association did not use predetermined classifications, instead reseeding all teams into three Divisions for postseason play.
Two Mecklenburg County teams that have traditionally been in Division I will drop down into Division II: Charlotte Country Day will play at Metrolina Christian Friday. Charlotte Latin will host Wake Christian.
