Girls on the nationally ranked Myers Park High School basketball team say they’re disappointed they can’t play in a national championship tournament next month.  

Tuesday, the State High School Athletic Association Board voted unanimously to deny the team’s request to play in the Dick’s Sporting Goods National Championship in New York City.  Myers Park is ranked number 4 in USA Today’s national poll.  They finished the season 29 – 1.  Still, a state rule prevents teams from playing games after their season is completed.
