Holy Family has played its way back into the Class 4A CHSAANow.com girls basketball rankings.

The Tigers grabbed wins over Erie and Mead last week, earning them enough votes to be the only new team in the 4A poll. They're ranked No. 10 this week.

Pueblo South remains the top team in 4A and are still undefeated against Colorado teams this season.

Air Academy (No. 5) and Pueblo West (No. 6) each gained two spots from their position last week.

The 5A poll also had only one new team with Fossil Ridge breaking in at No. 9.

Grandview remains the top team in the class, perhaps even solidifying their position even more after a 70-55 win over No. 7 Cherry Creek.

Fruita Monument comes in at No. 6, two spots better than last week's rankings.

St. Mary's took 10 first-place votes to remain the No. 1 team in 3A, with Sterling still right behind the Pirates at No. 2.

Manitou Springs jumped two spots from last week, coming in at No. 10.

Faith Christian (No. 9) and Eaton (No. 10) are the two new teams to the 3A poll.

Paonia still stands as the No. 1 team in 2A thanks to an undefeated record.

Del Norte broke into the top-three, landing at No. 3, two spots better than their position last week. At No. 6, Swink also jumped two places.

At No. 10, Holyoke is the only new team in the 2A poll.

In 1A, Kit Carson is still at No. 1, but Fleming jumps a spot to come in at No. 2. Both teams are still undefeated.

Antonito (No. 3), Kit/Branson (No. 4) and Heritage Christian (No. 5) round out the top half of the rankings. Each of the top five teams received at least one first-place vote.
