LAS VEGAS -- Bishop Gorman High School is known for its top notch athletic programs. But there have been concerns the private high school gets unfair advantage in attracting the best student athletes.
There are efforts underway to level the playing field among valley high schools.
Year after year, Bishop Gorman ruled the fields in local high school sports. The question is: Are they playing fair when it comes to the way they attract and enroll their student athletes?
"They have more funding for their sports to get good kids," said former Palo Verde High School student Jessica Webb.
"I am not saying we suck because we are pretty good, but we are not Gorman good," said Durango High School sophomore Luis Untalan.
According the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association, or the NIAA, there's no proof that Bishop Gorman recruits student athletes. However, at a meeting Wednesday, the group addressed concerns of how tuition is funded for Gorman's star athletes.
"We hear things and don't know for sure," said Las Vegas High School Principal Debbie Crockett. She would like to see some transparency on how Gorman is attracting the student athletes.
Bishop Gorman did not send representatives to take part in the committee meeting though they were invited. The school sent out a prepared statement. It said, they did not want to take part in a process that would not be "productive, fair or acceptable."
The statement went on to say that Bishop Gorman High School is an NIAA member in good standing and always has been.
Faith Lutheran CEO Dr. Steve Buuck who was at the meeting said the discussion is important but it's not right to punish a school for its achievements.
"I think schools being great is good for all of us, it gives us a model to shoot at and beat them," Dr. Buuck said.
"I am proud of our team, they are doing good. We win some games, we lose some games. That's life, you know," said Durango High School freshman Leiloni Studamire.
The NIAA said it's not likely that Bishop Gorman will lose its membership with the association, but the committee will take a closer look at developing a more transparent process on how tuition assistance at private schools is funded.
