Last Tuesday, the Virginia High School League (VHSL) unveiled its first weekly Power Ratings of the 2023 high school football season.
In the first set of the VHSL power ratings, the Alleghany Cougars were ranked sixth in the Class 3, Region C. Meanwhile, the Bath County Chargers were ranked third in the Class 1, Region C.
This week, there was no change to the ranking of either school’s program.
Despite a 47-0 victory over Carroll County last week, Alleghany remained at the sixth spot, while Bath County who also had a 47-0 win over Auburn, they remained at the three spot.
However, should the season have ended today, there opponents would be different than they were following the first week of the ratings. As mentioned last week, that will change each week with each win and or loss for all schools in each class and region.
If the season did end today, Alleghany as the 6th seed would travel to play the 3-seeded Spotswood Trailblazers (Valley District). The Blazers are currently riding a six-game win streak and moved up one spot in the ratings which had belonged to Rustburg the week before. Liberty Christian and Turner Ashby remain at the top two spots.
Bath County as the 3-seed would host 6-seeded George Wythe. Last week the 6-seed belonged to Fort Chiswell. All three top seeds remained the same in the region as Grayson County stayed at the top, while Narrows remained at two, and the Chargers at the three.
There’s still plenty of football left to go, but it’s that time of the year where placements are constantly changing up and down.
