Colorado Academy remains the No. 1 team in the CHSAANow.com field hockey rankings, but for the first time this season, the Mustangs walked away from a game without a victory in hand.

But they remain undefeated.

Golden battled Colorado Academy to a 1-1 tie, which helped the Demons climb back into the rankings at No. 3.

Palmer Ridge remains in the No. 2 spot and Regis Jesuit and Cherry Creek finished at No. 4 and No. 5 to round out this week's poll.

The ranking, voted upon by coaches, is the official poll of the Association. Rankings are released each Monday during the season.
