Dakota Ridge is making moves.

The Eagles joined the Class 5A CHSAANow.com boys lacrosse rankings Monday, taking the No. 10 spot.

But judging by their record, their climb is far from over. They remain undefeated heading into spring break and will see Lakewood and Boulder before a showdown with No. 4 Columbine.

The only new team in the 5A, poll Dakota Ridge is off until April 7.

Regis Jesuit took every first-place vote to remain the undisputed No. 1 team in the state. 

Thanks to a win over No. 5 Arapahoe, Cherry Creek jumped one spot to take over at No. 2.

Mountain Vista also jumped one spot from last week to come in at No. 3.

A week off didn't hurt Dawson as it was able to hold on to the No. 1 spot in the 4A poll. Valor Christian also held its spot at No. 2 despite a tough 8-6 loss to 5A's Lewis-Palmer on Wednesday.

Thompson Valley (No. 4) and Thomas Jefferson (No. 8) are both two spots better than they were in last week's poll.

At No. 10, Windsor is the only new team to break into the 4A rankings.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association.

During the regular season, new polls are released each Monday.
