Girls basketball rankings: Centaurus, Windsor join 4A poll

It seems that the top girls basketball teams in the state have no desire to relinquish their spots in the CHSAANow.com girls basketball rankings.

After very few changes to last week's rankings, things are looking just as — if not more — consistent this week.

Highlands Ranch, Sand Creek, Pagosa Springs, Yuma and Sangre de Cristo all maintained the top spots in their respective polls and by decisive margins.

The No. 1 teams went a combined 9-0 last week.

The 5A rankings only saw two teams shift positions as Lakewood and Ralston Valley traded spots from last week. The Tigers come in at No. 5 while the Mustangs fall to No. 6.

The top four 4A teams continue to look good as they went a combined 8-0 in play last week.

Centaurus and Windsor were able to do enough to make their case as they break into the rankings at No. 8 and No. 10 respectively.

In 3A, it continues to look like a three-team race at the top with Pagosa Springs, Sterling and Manitou Springs locking up the positions they have held for pretty much the entire season.

Eaton made a two-spot jump this week to land at No. 4 and Monte Vista is the new addition as they come in at No. 9.

West Grand (No. 9) and Highland (No. 10) break into the 2A rankings this week. Cedaredge jumps one spot to take over the new spot. The Bruins remain the only undefeated team in the 2A rankings.

South Baca and Otis made up the most ground this week in the 1A poll with each team jumping two spots. Otis lands at No. 4 while Otis jumped up to No. 9.

There were no new teams in the 1A rankings.

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