Columbine has joined CHSAANow.com's hockey ranking this week at No. 10.

The Rebels are 5-4-0 this season, and played No. 1 Ralston Valley tough in a 1-0 loss last week.

Ralston Valley remained in the No. 1 spot, a place it has occupied since the start of the season. But Regis Jesuit has started to encroach on that territory.

Both teams are 7-0-0, and Regis received three first-place votes to Ralston Valley's four. The Raiders beat Columbine 8-2 last week.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association. Polls are released each Monday.
