Mountain Vista may have just leapt over a huge mental hurdle. A win last week over Regis Jesuit helped the Golden Eagles take over the No. 2 spot in the Class 5A CHSAANow.com boys lacrosse rankings. 

Cherry Creek remains the No. 1 team in the poll, but a Mountain Vista win over Highlands this week could set up a No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown next week.

Beyond the shift in the No. 2 position, very few notable changes occurred in this week's rankings.

Kent Denver jumped a spot to No. 5 and Wheat Ridge also jumped a spot to land at No. 7.

No new teams broke into the poll.

Dawson held onto its top spot in the 4A rankings. Defending champion Valor Christian remains right behind the Mustangs at No. 2.

Aspen jumped two spots to take over at No. 8. 

Like the 5A rankings, no new teams joined the 4A top 10.

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.

Complete rankings for all classes are below.
