    VWR10: Attorney Kevin Martingayle, Roy Hill, Matt Keel and Andrew Farrar discuss a bill that could impact the VHSL

    The Virginia High School League is again under fire, this time coming from a Virginia Beach attorney who is seeking to make the voting procedure comparable to member schools. Attorney Kevin Martingayle is the father of several athletes, including wrestlers, and he's trying to get the word out about HB965, a bill that would force the VHSL to be more transparent and be subject to the Freedom of Information Act. On Episode 10 of the Virginia Wrestling Roundup, we'll talk with Martingayle, Hayfield head coach Roy Hill, Skyline head coach Matt Keel and VAWA Executive Director Andrew Farrar. We'll talk about how the bill could potentially impact sports in Virginia, especially wrestling and we'll give the listeners information on what they can do to get their local representative to support HB965.
