THE FAB FIVE

Class AAA

1. Woodrow Wilson (24) — The Flying Eagles (5-3) came up with a huge win Friday, knocking off Parkersburg to end a two-game losing skid. They'll head to Riverside on Friday.

2. Oak Hill (21) — The Red Devils (5-2) were shocked Friday when their five-game winning streak came to an end with a lopsided loss at Lewis County. They face another tough test at Bluefield this week.

3. Greenbrier East (13) — The Spartans (2-5) continue to pay the price of playing a difficult schedule. They lost to Hurricane on Friday, and they'll have to play at Huntigton this week.

5. Princeton (5) — The Tigers (1-7) got their first win two weeks ago, but they couldn't follow it up at Spring Valley. They'll face a difficult assignment at Cabell Midland on Friday.

Class AA

1. Bluefield (25) — The Beavers (6-1) won their sixth straight and scored 54 points in a win over Westside, the sixth straight game where they've scored at least 49. They'll host Oak Hill on Friday.
