Points: Teams earn points for each victory, the number depending on the classification of the opponent: AAA (12 points), AA (nine) and A (six). Teams also can pick up "rider" points -- one for each victory the opponents they beat notch against teams in their classification or higher.

Rating: A team's total points divided by number of games against VHSL competition.

Qualifiers: District champions automatically reach the playoffs. Power ratings determine the remainder of the four-team field in each division.
