Three new teams stand atop this week's CHSAANow.com boys soccer rankings, meaning there's a new No. 1 team in each classification.

Boulder (Class 5A), Evergreen (4A) and KIPP Collegiate (3A) all now lead their respective classes.

In 5A, Boulder moved up due in part to former No. 1 Broomfield's loss to Mountain Range in overtime last week. The Panthers got eight of the 10 first-place votes to take over.

Fort Collins also moved up, to No. 2, as did No. 3 ThunderRidge and No. 4 Arvada West. Fairview rounds out the top-5. ThunderRidge jumped from No. 6 to No. 3 after an impressive week in which they outscored their opponents 11-3 in three games.

Broomfield fell to sixth, Cherry Creek is seventh and Rocky Mountain is up to No. 8.

Aurora Central and Far Northeast are this week's newcomers to the 5A poll, landing at No. 9 and No. 10 respectively.

The top seeds from last week's CHSAANow.com boys soccer rankings all fell out of place this week. In Class 5A, Broomfield was topped by Mountain Range in overtime making Boulder the new No. 1.

Former 4A No. 1 Cheyenne Mountain was upset at the hands of Pueblo West, which helped Evergreen shoot to the top spot.

The occupants of last week's 4A poll remain the same, but with Cheyenne Mountain falling out of the top spot, there was some shakeup in the order. Valor Christian jumped from No. 4 to No. 2 and Littleton landed at No. 6 this week, up two spots from their ranking last week.

After recording a 3-0 win over Kent Denver Thursday, the Kent Denver Sun Devils played Fountain Valley to a 1-1 draw, allowing KIPP to take over the top spot in 3A.

Other big moves were made in 3A as Faith Christian made the jump from No. 6 to No. 3. There were also three newcomers to the 3A ranks as DSST Stapleton (No. 5), Jefferson Academy (No. 8) and Fountain Valley — fresh off its tie with Kent Denver — (No. 10) all joined the poll this week
