Fort Collins is continuing its historic climb up the CHSAANow.com hockey rankings. After scoring five goals in the third period to beat Liberty on Saturday, the Lambkins jumped one spot to come in at No. 2 this week.

It is the first year that Fort Collins has fielded a varsity team.

It sits right behind defending state champion Regis Jesuit who maintains its grip on the No. 1 spot.

Cherry Creek dipped one spot and comes in at No. 3.

Ralston Valley stays put at No. 4 while Valor Christian (No. 5) and Dakota Ridge (No. 6) trade spots from last week's rankings.

Monarch and Mountain Vista each jump one spot to come in at No. 7 and No. 8 respectively.

Resurrection Christian falls to No. 9 and Battle Mountain represents the only new team to the rankings, coming in at No. 10.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association. During the regular season, the poll will release each Monday.
