With most of the top-ranked teams winning last week, there wasn't much change to the CHSAANow.com hockey rankings this week.

Regis Jesuit continued to lead the poll with eight of the nine first-place votes and 89 total points. Mountain Vista and Ralston Valley held firm as the Nos. 2 and 3 teams, respectively.

Here's what did change: Cherry Creek jumped Dakota Ridge for the No. 4 spot aby virtue of a 4-3 win over the Eagles on Saturday. Also, Doherty moved up to No. 9 this week.

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