The Niwot Cougars are making sure they aren't forgotten when it comes to action on the pitch.

With impressive wins over Greeley West and Skyline, the Cougars made the leap from No. 6 to No. 2 in this week's Class 4A CHSAANow.com soccer rankings.

They weren't able to over take The Classical Academy, who held on to the No. 1 spot after claiming it last week.

Skyline was the lone addition to the 4A polls this week, coming in at No. 10. At 12-0-1, the Wolverines even earned a first-place vote this week.

There were no new teams that made their way into this week's 5A poll. Broomfield remains the No. 1 team in the rankings and Cherry Creek made the biggest movement, jumping two spots from No. 10 to No. 8.

Kent Denver is still the unanimous No. 1 team in 3A. Vail Mountain made the jump from No. 4 to No. 2 thanks to wins over Moffat County and Colorado Rocky Mountain.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association. These are the final boys soccer rankings of the season with the state brackets due to be released next Sunday.
