Top Ten Rankings - Entering 9-28-17 Weekend Games

Matthew Hatfield, Publisher
Virginia Preps

It's time for our fifth change to the Top Ten Rankings here in 2017 as many teams have hit the midway point of the regular season.

All of the #1 ranked teams in the six divisions stay the same with the closest margin of victory being 14-6. However, a total of six teams dropped out of the Top Ten rankings. That includes a two-time defending State Champ and a team that lost in the State Final last December.

New to the rankings are six squads, five of which hold undefeated records. The other, Magna Vista, was ranked #4 back in the preseason.

Check out the latest rankings below, plus be sure to click the team links to see the Previews you might've missed that were rolled out during our Countdown in August for those that were in the Preseason Top Ten...
