With only three weeks left in the regular season, the push for the postseason is heating up quicker than usual, thanks to the truncated six-game schedule and the fact that four, and not eight, teams will make the playoffs.

Here's a look at the latest standings and analysis on what's ahead for your favorite team!



1) Oscar Smith: 28.0
2) Franklin County: 26.667
3) Thomas Dale: 26.0
4) Ocean Lakes: 23.333
5) Western Branch: 21.25
6) Grassfield: 20.333
7T) Landstown: 19.0
      James River: 19.0

ANALYSIS: Oscar Smith and Franklin County each remain unbeaten, as did Thomas Dale. The Ocean Lakes loss to Princess Anne Friday night gives the Knights breathing room between the #3 and #4 positions. The Knights could pick up some big points Friday with a win over Prince George. 



1) Hermitage: 27.333
2T) Midlothian: 25.333
      Highland Springs: 25.333
      Prince George: 25.333
5) Manchester: 23.667
6) Varina: 22.75
7) Deep Run: 22.333
8) Glen Allen: 20.5
9T) Douglas Freeman: 19.0
      Clover Hill: 19.0
11) Atlee: 17.667

ANALYSIS: As expected, Hermitage remains atop the region, but here comes Highland Springs, thanks to the win over Glen Allen. They catch both Midlothian and Prince George, who both played winless teams and won. Manchester can draw closer with a win over Midlothian. This game could end up being a must-win for either team's playoff hopes. Varina's bye comes at a bad time. Deep Run gets right back into the thick of things, if they can knock off the Springers Friday. Hermitage loses ground this coming week, even with a win over winless Henrico, unless Midlothian, Highland Springs and Prince George all lose.


1T) Monacan: 26.0
     King George: 26.0
3) Patrick Henry: 24.667
4) Louisa: 24.0
5) Powhatan: 21.333
6) Chancellor: 21.25
7) Eastern View: 20.75
8T) Dinwiddie: 20.333
      Hanover: 20.333

ANALYSIS: The King George win over Eastern View gives us the delineation: four unbeaten teams, then everyone else. Monacan joins the Foxes atop the region, while Patrick Henry and Louisa trail due to strength of schedule, or rather, lack thereof. This week, King George hosts Courtland, Monacan hosts hard luck Clover Hill, while Patrick Henry hosts Atlee and Louisa is at Fluvanna. The Chiefs and Patriots play Class 5 schools, so two bonus points are in play for both of them. Powhatan's triple-overtime thriller over Clover Hill keeps them alive along with Chancellor, the Cyclones, and we don't want to forget both Dinwiddie and Hanover, who likely need to run the table, and get some help (like Hanover defeating the Patriots a week from Friday).


1) Lafayette: 24.0
2) Phoebus: 23.0
3) Hopewell: 20.0
4) New Kent: 18.0
5T) Tabb: 16.5
      York: 16.5
7) I.C. Norcom: 16.0
8) Southampton: 14.5
9) Petersburg: 14.0

ANALYSIS: Hopewell, hopefully, returns to action going to Dinwiddie. A win their helps solidify their standing in the top four. New Kent's win over Poquoson Saturday was big. Petersburg isn't out yet, but needs to win out to have hope for the top four.


1) Goochland: 25.333
2) Brentsville District: 22.0
3) Independence: 19.667
4) George Mason: 18.667
5) Lightridge: 18.5
6) Skyline: 18.0

ANALYSIS: Goochland is comfortably in front here, but the Bulldogs won't slow down their intensity. Win out, and they're the top seed. It's in their hands.


1) Nottoway: 20.0
2) King William: 18.667
3) Poquoson: 18.0
4) Amelia County: 15.667
5) Bruton: 9.5
6) Windsor: 8.5

ANALYSIS: Nottoway finally gets to play, and takes over the top spot, for now, from 3-0 King William, who get the top seed in 1A, 3-0 King and Queen Central on Friday.


1) King & Queen Central: 17.5
2T) Rappahannock: 12.0
      Northampton: 12.0
4) West Point: 11.0
5) Mathews: 8.5
6T) Lancaster: 5.0
      Northumberland: 5.0
