As we embark on a week of play late in the season, a lot of movement is taking place in the lower two-thirds of the rankings.

Most of the moves come out of Region 3-3A and 4-3A where it’s a wild, wild west in regards to playoff spots.  Although Sequatchie County and Notre Dame remain at the top in in control of the No. 1 seed for their respective regions, others in their district are struggling to get a grip on the shifting level of play.  One of note is Howard, who moves into our Top 15 for the first time this season. Tyner moves down to the lowest ranking it’s been since the start of the season.

And so we present our weekly GSV Power Rankings:
