Three new teams join 4A baseball rankings

Things got a bit crazy when this week's Class 4A baseball poll was released.

Three new teams — Pueblo West, Pueblo East and Mountain View — joined CHSAANow.com's ranking after going unranked in the preseason.

Pueblo West jumped all the way up to No. 3 following its 4-0 start which includs a win over then-No. 4 Palmer Ridge, as well as an impressive showing at a tournament in New Mexico.

Pueblo East is No. 5 this week, while Mountain View is No. 8.

Green Mountain remained No. 1 in the 4A poll. In fact, none of the No. 1s changed from the preseason, meaning Regis Jesuit (5A), Eaton (3A), Resurrection Christian (2A) and Dove Creek (1A) all held firm.

In 5A, Columbine joined the poll at No. 9. They were the lone newcomer to that ranking.

The 3A poll added La Junta (No. 10), while Dayspring Christian (No. 9) and Dolores (No. 10) are new to 2A. 1A added No. 9 Springfield and No. 10 Fleming.

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

Complete rankings for all classes are below.
