THE FAB FIVE

Class AAA

1. Oak Hill (24) — The Red Devils (4-1) jumped to the top of the list with a win over Shady Spring Friday. They host Point Pleasant this week.

2. Woodrow Wilson (21) — The Flying Eagles (4-2) ran into one of the state's top teams last week, losing to Cabell Midland, and they'll face another, Huntington, on Friday.

3. Greenbrier East (15) — The Spartans (1-4) were no match for Spring Valley last week. They'll try to break a skid Friday night at Nitro.

Class AA

1. Bluefield (25) — The Beavers (4-1) won their fourth straight Friday, downing Gate City (Va.). They'll face a test this week against River View.

T2. River View (16) — The Raiders (4-2) lost to Wyoming East Friday, but they can bounce back in a big way if they can knock off Bluefield this week.
