While the teams that occupy this week's CHSAANow.com field rankings might look the same, the poll saw plenty of shifting from only a week ago.

Like it has most of the year, Colorado Academy remains strong as the No. 1 team in the state.

After breaking into the rankings at No. 3 last week, Golden climbs to the No. 2 spot after beating St. Mary's Academy 2-0 and battling to a 0-0 tie with Cherry Creek.

That same tie also helped the Bruins jump from No. 5 to No. 3.

After falling to Colorado Academy for the second time this season, Palmer Ridge fell to the No. 4 spot this week.

Regis Jesuit fell one spot this week to come in at No. 5.

The ranking, voted upon by coaches, is the official poll of the Association. This will serve as the final poll of the regular season with the season due to end on Thursday.

A complete ranking is below.
