Re: VHSL Results & Opinions

The Clarke County High School page indicates that George Mason won Region B, and Clarke Co. was the runner-up. For the record, this is the fourth straight year that the Bull Run District has dominated Region B and taken both spots (although Clarke finished in third in 2006 when Mason advanced with W...

I've been told by A.J. Collins that the Bull Run District is most likely going to send the top two seeds from the regular season to the Region B tournament and cancel the district tournament.
