Volleyball rankings: Chatfield takes over No. 1 spot in 5A

For the second-straight week, there is a new team on top of the Class 5A volleyball rankings. Chatfield has taken over.

The Chargers, now 8-0, went 2-0 last week with wins at Rocky Mountain and Green Mountain.

Legend took over the top spot last week, then was swept by Lewis-Palmer, the top team in 4A, last week.

With the loss to the Rangers, the Titans fell to No. 2 this week. Legend and Cherokee Trail each only fell one spot to second and third, respectively. The biggest jump in 5A came from Brighton. The Bulldogs went from unranked to No. 10, and have now raised to sixth.

Newcomers to the 5A include Lakewood at ninth and Columbine at No. 10.

The top five teams in 4A went unchanged and the overall poll itself remains relatively unscathed from last week. It did welcome two new teams in Berthoud at ninth and Holy Family at No. 10.

St. Mary's joins the 3A poll at ninth, thanks in part to a big win over Manitou Springs at the Bishop Machebeuf Tournament over the weekend. The Mustangs dropped to fifth as result to the loss against the Pirates, as well as a loss to Resurrection Christian. Defending champion Eaton remained the top team in 3A.

Resurrection Christian continues to cruise this season and was a unanimous pick as the top team in 2A. They the only No. 1 team this week to receive every first place vote. The bottom of the 2A poll looks vastly different this week with the addition of the Colorado Springs School (eighth), West Grand (ninth) and Swink (No. 10).

Idalia hangs on to their place atop the 1A rankings after an impressive 4-0 week. They're joined in the top 10 by Nucla and Briggsdale.

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