This week’s Magnificent Seven:


1. Vance (11-2). The Cougars put everything together in beating  West Forsyth on the road. They’ll need to do it again at Richmond Senior, the West Region’s top seed.


2. Myers Park. (12-1). The Mustangs couldn’t hold off Richmond Senior after taking a 24-13 lead in the third quarter. Still, it was the program’s best season in years.


3. Mallard Creek (10-1-1). Lost to Vance in the third round, but the Mavericks will likely return one of the county’s top programs in 2020.


4. Ardrey Kell (11-2). A 10-game win streak makes this the Knights’ best season ever.


5. Hough (8-4). Lost to Richmond Senior in the second.


6. Olympic (8-4). Lost to Hough in the first round.


7. Butler (8-4). Lost to Vance in the first round.
