Another week of action means its time for another update to the Power 25. The private schools are moving to their postseason as the VISAA and DCSAA playoffs are this week. Congratulations to Gonzaga, the 2022 WCAC Champs. The Eagles snapped St. John's long stranglehold on the WCAC be rallying from a 1-0 Championship Series deficit to capture the crown. 

Hanover and Colgan have continued to roll throughout the back half of the season mostly unchallenged. Fortunately, with the playoffs around the corner, both teams should see some tougher opponents once we get into the Region tournaments. Colgan finished the season unbeaten in District play and the Sharks are the Cardinal District Champs.

Battlefield and Freedom (South Riding) finished tied atop the Cedar Run District and will face off in a winner-take-all tiebreaker game for the District Championship and the #1 seed in the Region. The Fairfax Class 6 Districts also have concluded their regular seasons and are into their District Tournaments, with Hayfield winning the National District, Chantilly the Concorde, McLean the Liberty, and Lake Braddock winning the Patriot District.

The VISAA State Tournaments get underway this week as we move towards Championship Saturday at Shepard Stadium this weekend. Cape Henry Collegiate, Highland School, and Walsingham Academy are the top seeds in the Division I, Division II, and Division III tournaments, respectively.
