Briar Woods (5C) and Independence (3B) each earned No. 2 seeds and will also host semifinal games.

Broad Run (4C) and Woodgrove (5C) are both seeded No. 3 in their regions, while Freedom secured the No. 4 seed in Region 5C. All three teams will play regional semifinal games on the road.

The VHSL will crown state champions in all six classifications for the 2020 season (played in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic). Loudoun is represented by playoff teams in Class 3, 4 and 5.
