    I think Castlewood is an awesome school. I love it. Even though I'm from Haysi myself. They have a very good football team and I think that they probably have a good basketball team to. I would like to wish them good luck for their games against Haysi. Good luck! You will probably need it by the way they played Council on Saturday night in the Kiwanis Tournment.
