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.
