The 2004 Dorman team was highly successful, placing both an A and B team in the top 12 of the HSNCT

Though details do not yet exist, the team won the ASCN TOC. This was their second consecutive of what would be three consecutive championships in this tournament (which would prove to the the last in the history of that tournament), and the third of what would be four consecutive top-two finishes.

Their "A" team, which consisted of Cale Bonner, Jonathan Ross, Malcolm Neave, and Shelly Price finished in a tie for sixth at the NAQT HSNCT. The team finished 7-3 in the preliminary rounds, earning wins against notables such as Brookwood (365-215), Thomas Jefferson "B" (320-210), Central-Macon (295-130), and St. John's (390-290).

In the playoffs, Dorman opened by defeating Johnson Central, 380-250, and then Rufus King 470-220. In the third round, they suffered their second defeat to Maggie Walker, 250-400. In the consolation bracket, Dorman then eliminated its own "B" team, 440-115, before being eliminated itself in the fifth consolation round with a 295-320 loss to Detroit Catholic Central.

As noted, the "B" team, which consisted of Josh Arwood, Shawn Campbell, Tejas Doshi, and Vedhas Doshi had a successful run to the playoffs. After opening with a disastrous 2-3 record in the prelims (losses to Macon Central, TJ "B",and Cahrlottesville), the team put on a dazling comeback to win their last five games over distinguished programs such as Shady Side (220-215), Kent City (280-100), Mission San Jose (210-190), and Dunbar (240-150) to finish 7-3.

In the playoffs, the "B" team started with their second loss to Charlottesville (115-340). In the consolation bracket, the "B" team picked up wins against Russellville (210-170), and Dunbar (again: 265-195), before succumbing to their own "A" team, 115-440.
