The Raiders received 11 of the 16 first-place votes in CHSAANow.com's poll, which was released Monday. They also had 139 overall points, edging preseason No. 2 Broomfield (130).

Broomfield lost in last season's 4A title game, and is making the move to 5A this season.

Grandview is No. 3, and No. 4 Highlands Ranch and No. 5 Fossil Ridge round out the top 5.

Also ranked in the preseason are No. 6 Lakewood, No. 7 Cherry Creek, No. 8 Rampart, No. 9 Horizon and No. 10 ThunderRidge.

In 4A, Valor Christian is the preseason No. 1. Pueblo South is No. 2, and defending champion Mesa Ridge is No. 3. Holy Family, winner of last year's 3A title which has moved up to 4A, is No. 7.

Sterling leads 3A's preseason poll. Pagosa Springs, last season's runner-up, is No. 2.

Yuma is the favorite in 2A. It was runner-up last season to Lutheran, which opens as No. 3.

Briggsdale heads the 1A ranking. Defending champion Norwood is No. 3.
