GHSA Will Vote to Amend Bylaws on National Competitions

The agenda for the GHSA State Executive Committee Meeting has been released.  And the GHSA will, in fact, be voting to amend it’s bylaws to allow teams to compete in National tournaments after the completion of the season.  This change was brought about due to the controversy involving Wheeler High School’s basketball team being invited to a national competition in New York after winning the Georgia State Championship.  The GHSA initially denied Wheeler the chance to compete in this tournament because it is forbidden in the bylaws.  However, after a public outcry and charges of racism, the GHSA granted Wheeler a waiver allowing them to participate.   To avoid this situation in the future the GHSA will be voting to amend the bylaws permanently.
