Columbine, last year's Class 5A champion, returned to the girls soccer rankings this week.

The Rebels (7-2-0) are No. 8 in CHSAANow.com's 5A poll, and actually just won a title game rematch with Ralston Valley last week.

There was a lot of shakeup to the 5A rankings, including Mountain Vista's rise to No. 2 after beating last week's No. 2 Rock Canyon.

Grandview also made a big jump in going from No. 8 to No. 4.

Other newcomers this week include No. 9 Cheyenne Mountain and No. 10 Littleton in 4A; and No. 9 Middle Park in 3A.

A week after three new No. 1 teams dotted the rankings, all four top teams held firm in their respective classifications. Those are ThunderRidge (5A), Evergreen (4A), Colorado Academy (3A) and Front Range Christian (2A).

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

Complete rankings for all classes are below.
