This week's CHSAANow.com girls basketball rankings look mighty different than they did a week ago.

No, there are no new No. 1 teams in any of the five classifications. However, there were a number of big movers.

Included, in 5A: Lakewood going from No. 6 to No. 3, Mountain Vista from No. 9 to No. 4 and Cherry Creek from No. 8 to No. 6.

Lakewood has now won eight games in a row. Mountain Vista, meanwhile, beat then-No. 5 ThunderRidge last week.

Rock Canyon shoulders at least part of the blame for the shakeup. The Jaguars upset then-No. 4 Highlands Ranch last week as they went 3-0, and are now ranked No. 10.

Highlands Ranch tumbled to No. 9 after losing its third-straight game. ThunderRidge dropped to No. 8.

Regis Jesuit stayed atop 5A, and Grandview remained at No. 2.

The week's other big mover was Peak to Peak, which went from No. 9 to No. 4 in 3A. That ranking added three new teams this week: No. 7 Platte Valley, No. 8 Grand Valley and No. 10 Trinidad.

Other newcomers: No. 10 Palmer Ridge in 4A and No. 10 Heritage Christian in 2A.

Broomfield (4A), Holy Family (3A), Lutheran (2A) and Caliche (1A) all stay atop their respective polls this week.

Complete rankings for all classes are below.
