Re: Quaker Bowl--CANCELLED

Re: Early College at Guilford Invitational--The "Quaker Bowl"

Mr. Rodney: Your point regarding the bracketing at this tournament is well-taken. In looking back, it is pretty clear that Raleigh Charter A and Walt Whitman were the two best teams in the tournament, and that they ended up in the same preliminary bracket was unfortunate. I will say that I made sure...
