Chatfield was the big benefactor of two Regis Jesuit losses last week.

The Chargers come into this week as the new No. 1 team in the Class 5A CHSAANow.com baseball poll. Monday they topped Arapahoe, and had a huge Thursday showdown with the then No. 1 Raiders.

Regis Jesuit was coming off a loss to Fairview and was looking to bounce back, but a seven-run sixth inning for the Chargers was good enough to get the win. As a result, despite losing to Bear Creek on Saturday, Chatfield sits atop the 5A rankings.

ThunderRidge made the most impressive jump of the week to land at No. 2. They were the No. 9 team in last week's poll.

Fort Collins has played well enough that it broke into the rankings this week at No. 9 respectively.

The 4A rankings also saw a new No. 1 team emerge as D'Evelyn reclaims the top spot that Silver Creek had taken a week ago.

There were two new teams in the 4A poll as Mountain View comes in at No. 5 and Pueblo Centennial rounds out the rankings at No. 10.

The Eaton Reds remain undefeated on the year and also remain the No. 1 team in the 3A poll. The top four teams from a week ago held on to their spot this week.

The Academy was the only new team to break into the 3A rankings, landing at No. 10.

Paonia swept all four games they played last week to hold on to their No. 1 ranking in 2A.

Front Range Christian, who remains undefeated on the year at 8-0, breaks into the 2A polls at No. 9. The Falcons were the only newcomer this week.

Holly is still the No. 1 team in 1A, getting five of nine first-place votes.

Fleming jumped two spots to land at No. 2 and Gilpin County is the only new team in the 1A poll, landing at No. 8.

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.
