Girls soccer rankings: Valor Christian moves to No. 1 spot in 4A

Valor Christian's hot start to the season has made the Eagles the new No. 1 team in the Class 4A CHSAANow.com girls soccer rankings.

They did get a little help from down the road as Cheyenne Mountain handed The Classical Academy its first loss, knocking the Titans out of the top spot.

Lewis-Palmer made up significant ground in the 4A polls as well, jumping from No. 9 to No. 2 and even receiving two first-place votes.

No new teams were added to this week's 4A poll.

Grandview remains the No. 1 team in 5A. The Wolves went 1-0 last week and remain undefeated on the year.

Cherokee Trail and Fairview make up the two new faces to the 5A poll, coming in at No. 7 and No. 9 respectively.

Colorado Academy kept a grip on its position as the No. 1 team in 3A. In fact, the top five teams this week all held on to their places from the previous set of rankings.

Denver Science and Tech - Stapleton (No. 9) and St. Mary's (No. 10) are the two new teams in the 3A poll.

Vail Mountain received every first-palce vote in the 2A rankings to hold on to the No. 1 spot. The 2A poll overall was unchanged from the previous set of 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.
