Girls soccer rankings: New No. 1 teams in 3A, 4A

An overtime win over Colorado Academy was good enough to make Kent Denver the new No. 1 team in the Class 3A CHSAANow.com girls soccer rankings.

The Sun Devils dropped a game over the weekend to Smoky Hill, but in the voters' eyes they look to be the top team after taking down the Mustangs in a head-to-head showdown.

Fountain Valley and Sterling are starting to make some noise amongst the ranks and as a result, broke into the top 10 at No. 7 and No. 9 respectively.

There was also a new No. 1 team atop the 4A rankings as Lewis-Palmer assumes the top spot, edging out league foe Cheyenne Mountain.

Ironically, it was the Indians who helped the Rangers claim that spot as they won a 4-3 thriller over former No. 1 Valor Christian on Saturday night.

Cheyenne Mountain and Lewis-Palmer will square off Wednesday night at Don Breese Stadium.

The only newcomer in this week's 4A poll was Littleton at No. 10.

Grandview still has a firm hold on the top spot in the 5A rankings, easily fending off No. 2 Mountain Vista.

Rock Canyon made a sizable jump this week, landing at No. 5 which is up five spots from their No. 10 ranking a week ago.

The 5A poll welcomes two new teams this week as Rocky Mountain comes in at No. 8 and ThunderRidge rounding out the poll at No. 10.

Vail Mountain is still the No. 1 team in 2A as the entire poll itself went unchanged from a week ago.
