Class AAA

1. Woodrow WIlson (23) —The Flying Eagles (6-4) finished the season with a loss at Capital. Now they'll have to wait on a possible playoff berth.

2. Oak Hill (22) — The Red Devils (6-3) could improve to 7-2 if the suspension of Elkins' wins is upheld. They appear to be in good position for a postseason spot.

3. Shady Spring (12) —The Tigers (5-4) continued to dominate Class AA opponents, beating Liberty, but they still don't have a AAA victory.

4. Greenbrier East (11) — Playing without their quarterback and top running back, the Spartans (2-7) suffered a loss to Princeton on Friday.

5. Princeton (7) — The Tigers (2-8) finished a frustrating season with a win over Greenbrier East on Friday.

Class AA

 4. Summers County (13) — The Bobcats (6-3) kept their playoff hopes alive with a win over Richwood. They'll finish against Valley on Friday.
