THE FAB FIVE

BECKLEY — Class AAA

1) Oak Hill (25) — The Red Devils (8-2) finished the regular season rated No. 9 after a win over Greenbrier East. They'll be at No. 8 George Washington to open the playoffs.

2) Woodrow Wilson (17) — The Flying Eagles (4-6) finished off their season with a win over Hedgesville. Woodrow won't be playoff bound, though, after falling short of the .500 mark.

3) Princeton (15) — The Tigers (6-4) finished with a win over Class AA James Monroe but fell just short of the top 16, missing out on a shot at a postseason berth.

4) Greenbrier East (13) — The Spartans (5-5) got back to .500 this year, but a blowout loss at Oak Hill kept them from their first playoff berth since 1998.

5) Shady Spring (5) — The Tigers (1-9) ended the year with a lopsided loss at Musselman. Their only win all season was a 14-7 victory at Independence.

Class AA

1) Bluefield (25) — The Beavers (8-2) fell just short in a showdown with defending state champion Wayne and ended the year rated No. 3. They'll host Ravenswood to open the postseason.

2) Summers County (19) — The Bobcats (9-1) will host a playoff game for the first time. They're ranked No. 5 and will welcome Ritchie County to Hinton to open the postseason.

T3) Nicholas County (13) — The Grizzlies (8-2) finished with a blowout win over Richwood and were No. 11 in the ratings. They'll hit the road to face Wyoming East in the first round.

T3) Wyoming East (13) — The Warriors (9-1) lost only to Summers County and finished the season rated No. 6. They'll welcome Nicholas County to New Richmond in the first round.

5) Westside (5) — The Renegades (5-5) finished an injury-plauged season with a win over River View to get back to .500. They'll miss the playoffs in Larry Cook's first year as head coach.

Class A

1) Greenbrier West (24) — The Cavaliers (9-1) lost only to Summers County and were perfect against Class A opponents. They're rated No. 7 and will host Notre Dame to open the postseason.

2) Valley (21) — The Greyhounds (10-0) completed the first undefeated regular season in school history by romping Gilmer County. They're rated No. 3 and will host Magnolia in the first round.

3) Meadow Bridge (15) — The Wildcats (8-2) lost only to Valley and Summers County. They're rated No. 11 and will begin the playoffs on the road at traditional power Moorefield.

4) Fayetteville (9) — The Pirates (4-6) ended their run through a brutal schedule with a pounding of Independence. They'll miss the playoffs, but they made major strides after going winless in 2012.

5) Midland Trail (6) — The Patriots (5-5) ended the season with wins in three of their last four games to get back to .500. They'll miss the postseason but can build on the late charge next season.
