Summary: Five of the six VHSL divisions are represented in the Piedmont District so because of that the district really won't crown a champion. The Bengals are in Division 4 and they graduated 21 seniors from last year's team that fell in the first round of the playoffs. The key players listed above are the team captains so they will be the team leaders who try to steer a young team toward victories.
