The top-10 team seem pretty set in hockey this season.

For the fourth consecutive week, no new teams joined the CHSAANow.com rankings, though there was some movement within the poll.

Dakota Ridge, which went 3-0-0 last week, jumped over Mountain Vista for the No. 5 spot. And Resurrection Christian, which went 2-0-0, moved into No. 8 ahead of Steamboat Springs.

Monarch remained the No. 1 team in the ranking, garnering five of the nine first-place votes. Second-ranked Regis Jesuit got three first-place votes, and No. 3 Cherry Creek got the other.

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