Playoff Outlook

  4. Purcellville: 14-21, with seven games remaining. Half a game ahead of Winchester, 3.5 behind New Market.
  5. Winchester: 13-21, eight games remaining, half a game out of the playoffs, and game and a half ahead of Front Royal.
  6. Front Royal: 13-24, five games left, two games out of a playoff spot. Can’t get to a top three spot, but can still grab playoff spot #4.


  1. Harrisonburg: 23-12, seven games left, half a game in first, have clinched a top three spot
