The VHSL has adopted a "30 Point Rule" which is to be used in all VHSL contests unless an entire District opts out.  At this time the only District that has contacted us and informed us they have opted out is the Beach District.  Thus we will assume that all of the other Districts are using the rule.   For games between non-district opponents the home team's district's policy should be used.  If Kellam plays at Maury the 30 point rule will be used but if Maury plays at Kellam the rule will not be used.  The rule is as follows:  Click here
