Baseball rankings: Eads new No. 1 in Class 1A poll

It's still early in the 2016 baseball season, but there has already been some shakeup in the Class 1A CHSAANow.com baseball rankings.

Eads takes over the top spot in the state after a 1-0 start to their season. Former No. 1 Dove Creek, who has stumbled out of the gate fell to No. 2.

Cotopaxi and Manzanola played their way into the still young rankings, coming in at No. 6 and No. 9 respectively.

Nothing has changed at the top of the 5A rankings as Regis Jesuit and Cherry Creek remain the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in those rankings.

Columbine is one of two newcomers in the poll as they land at No. 8 with Ralston Valley, the other newcomer, joining at No. 9.

The top of the 4A rankings has the same story as the 5A poll. D'Evelyn and Lewis-Palmer remain the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the class, with both teams undefeated on the year.

Though, the 4A rankings did see more turnover this week than any other class as Silver Creek (No. 7), Denver North (No. 8) and Air Academy (No. 9) all broke their way into this week's poll.

And it was 3A who saw the least turnover of the week. Eaton still holds the No. 1 spot, but nine of last week's 10 ranked teams all stayed in the poll this week, although a few did jump up or down in ranking.

Buena Vista is the lone newcomer in the poll, coming in at No. 10.

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.
