Re: VHSL Scholastic Bowl: Regional Contenders

My Facebook news feed had told me that Rappahannock Co. won Conference 43 (Rapp River Conference), and the Rapp News tells me it was over the other Rappahannock -- the one in Warsaw, VA. How confusing.

The 1A East Regionals are at Colonial Beach on 2/1.
