The top of the Class 5A and 4A CHSAANow.com boys soccer rankings have a new look to them this week.

With wins over Legacy and Salesianum (Del.) last week, Boulder is now firmly planted in the No. 1 spot of the 5A rankings, taking the spot of rival Fairview.

It was a 3-1 loss to the same Saleianum team that knocked Fairview out of the top spot and down to No. .3.

The No. 2 spot also has a new occupant as Cherry Creek climbs three spots to land right behind Boulder.

Grandview also climbed this week landing at No. 7 which is two spots better than a week ago.

Mountain Vista is the only new team in the 5A poll at No. 8.

Despite going 0-1 last week, Air Academy takes the top in 4A, unseating Pikes Peak Athletic Conference rival Cheyenne Mountain.

The Kadets lost to Pine Creek while the Indians were beaten by D'Evelyn.

Lewis-Palmer climbed two spots to land at No. 5, making three of the top five spots occupied by PPAC teams.

Niwot (No. 7) and D'Evelyn (No. 9) are the two new teams to this week's 4A rankings.

The only team to hold on to its No. 1 spot this week is 3A's Kent Denver. The top three spots in the 3A poll remained intact from a week ago.

Jefferson Academy is the only new team in the 3A poll, rounding things out at No. 10.
