The West Virginia Boys State High School Basketball Tournament turns 100 years old next week.
And for the first time ever, the event will feature Hurricane High School.
The Redskins held off pesky Logan on Tuesday night in a Class AAA co-regional final to earn the berth.
It took overtime for Lance Sutherland's crew to punch a ticket to the big dance.
Also from the area, Huntington High earned a spot in the AAA field of 2013 with a win over Nitro.
Other AAA winners were Beckley, Morgantown and Parkersburg South. Three games were postponed until Thursday due to weather.
Also on Tuesday, Marshall defeated Southern Mississippi 88-84. The Eagles had beaten the Herd earlier in the season, 102-46.
