Chatham High School traveled to Radford last weekend to compete in the Scholastic Bowl regional matches.

Chatham faced Radford High School, Gretna High School, and James River High School. Each team competed for a spot at the state competition, as only one team could move on.

Chatham first beat James River, then narrowly lost to Gretna. The team then went on to beat Radford High School, last year’s state champions.

Gretna lost to Radford in their first match, then beat James River in their final, leaving both teams with a 2-1 record.

The winner came down to points, with Gretna beating Chatham by only 35 points. Chatham received a runner up trophy while Gretna will move on to states in February in Jamestown, VA.
