Every No. 1 team in the CHSAANow.com volleyball rankings held their position, but there was still plenty of new looks near the top of each class.

In Class 5A, Chatfield remains undefeated at No. 1, but they have company nipping at their heels. The Mountain Vista Golden Eagles made the jump from No. 10 to No. 2 following a sweep of 4A's Ponderosa, a team that many would call one of the best in the state, regardless of classification.

Undefeated Prairie View and Bright both join the rankings this week at No. 8 and No. 9, respectively.

In 4A, Lewis-Palmer has yet to relinquish the top spot this year, but now it has Colorado Springs-area rival Cheyenne Mountain right behind them at No. 2. The Indians looked impressive during a 3-0 sweep of Doherty this week and will get their shot at the Rangers later this season.

Ponderosa fell two spots following its loss to Mountain Vista.

New to the 4A poll this week is Elizabeth, who comes in at No. 10.

Eaton continues to remain dominant in the 3A rankings, even taking down last week's No. 2 Platte Valley early last week.

Undefeated Alamosa breaks into the 3A rankings this week, jumping all the way up to No. 7.

Resurrection Christian says firmly in the No. 1 spot in 2A. One team did break their way into this week's poll as Vail Christian lands at No. 9.

The No. 1 team in 1A is still Idalia, who has yet to lose this season. McClave played its way into the 1A rankings this week, landing at No. 9.

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