Cherry Creek, a program that has appeared in every girls lacrosse championship game in history, is the preseason favorite this season.

The Bruins, defending champions, received five of the six first-place votes and 58 overall points in the first CHSAANow.com girls lacrosse poll of the season.

With good reason, too: Cherry Creek returns its top five point scorers from last season's team, including Blair Sisk (47 goals, 11 assists) and Livvy List (38 goals, 16 assists).

Air Academy, a semifinalist last season, is No. 2 in the preseason ranking. Centaurus, last season's runner-up, is No. 3.

Arapahoe is fourth, and Chatfield rounds out the top five.
