Broomfield has seized the top spot in the Class 5A CHSAANow.com softball rankings.

The Eagles notched wins over Greeley West and Fairview to assume this week's top spot.

A 5-2 loss to Rocky Mountain dropped former No. 1 Fossil Ridge one spot to No. 2. The Eagles and Sabercats will take the field against each other on Tuesday.

Cherokee Trail made a two spot jump to land at No. 5 and received a couple of first-place votes along the way.

At No. 10, Douglas County is the only new team in the 5A rankings.

Erie edged Valor Christian to hang on to the No. 1 in 4A after taking it from the Eagles a week ago.

Pueblo West jumped two spots to come in at No. 7 this week.

A trio of new teams broke into the 4A poll as Elizabeth lands at No. 8, Golden comes in at No. 9 and Ferderick rounds out the rankings at No. 10.

Strasburg hangs on to the No. 1 spot in 3A this week, but Rocky Ford made a two-spot jump to land at No. 2.

Lamar had the biggest climb in 3A, coming in at No. 6, up three spots from a week ago.
