Re: North Carolina 2020

Piedmont Invitationals is in 8 days!!! I can't wait. Does anyone have a list of teams attending? I especially want to know if WAAS is going, because I think they sent their B or C team to O'Neal. We (WAAS) are going, and we sent our JV team to O'Neal, :D I was wondering why WAAS only sent one team
