The South Carolina High School League voted Wednesday to approve Dorman High School's bid to send their boys basketball team to the Geico High School Nationals tournament in New York City in April.

Current by law article 4 section 6 of the South Carolina High School League states that "No participation will be allowed in an out of state game that is construed as a post season or bowl game."

A petition accumulated over 4,000 signatures from people backing the team's bid to travel to New York to participate in the national tournament.

The petition stated that this is the first time in SC basketball history to have a high school team presented with the chance to play in this national competition and about how what a major opportunity it would be for the players.

The league met Wednesday in Columbia for an appeal meeting, and after Dorman presented their case, the vote was 17-0 in favor of allowing the team to participate.
