Wheat Ridge has overtaken Pueblo East atop the Class 4A CHSAANow.com softball poll.

The Farmers, off to an 8-0-0 start, were No. 2 last week but moved up to No. 1 by virtue of a 6-0-0 week which included a 7-2 victory over Pueblo East, last week's top-ranked team.

Elsewhere, Douglas County went from unranked to No. 3 in the 5A poll, which also added Ralston Valley (No. 8) and Fossil Ridge (No. 9).

Strasburg continued to lead the 3A poll.
