Going To Regionals

Yesterday, the John Battle High School VHSL academic team (of which I'm a member), came in 2nd at theDistrict competition at Holston High School. We'll be going on February 4th to some place near Christiansburg, Virginia called East Montgomery H.S., for the Regional competition. Wish us luck (in advance)!
