Colorado Academy and Chaparral are starting to get noticed at the right time.

The Mustangs and the Wolverines each won two crucial games last week and those wins were good enough to get them into the Class 5A CHSAANow.com boys lacrosse rankings.

Colorado Academy breaks in at No. 9 and Chaparral lands at No. 10.

An overtime win over Regis Jesuit ensured that Cherry Creek would remain the top team in the rankings. The Raiders stayed put at No. 3, with the loss not affecting their position.

In fact, the top five teams last week all held on to their spots this week.

The Dawson School is still the No. 1 team in 4A, taking eight of nine first-place votes.

Thanks to a comeback win over Golden, Windsor held on to their spot at No. 2.

Air Academy and Valor Christian each jumped two spots from a week ago with the Kadets coming in at No. 7 and the Eagles 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.
