Valor Christian and Resurrection Christian have risen to the top of their respective baseball rankings this week.

Valor, No. 2 in the Class 4A preseason, bumped up one spot following preseason No. 1 Mountain View's 1-2 start. The Eagles received seven of the 11 first-place votes and lead this week's CHSAANow.com ranking. Mountain View slipped to No. 9.

Montrose moved from No. 4 to No. 2, Windsor is now No. 3 and Longmont -- which beat Mountain View twice -- is No. 4. Air Academy rounds out the top 5.

Falcon (No. 7) and D'Evelyn (No. 8) are newcomers to the 4A poll.

Resurrection Christian, meanwhile, takes over atop 2A. The Cougars got four first-place votes and edged No. 2 Lutheran by four overall points.

Denver Christian, the preseason No. 1 in 2A, dropped to No. 3. That ranking added Front Range Christian at No. 9.

The other No. 1 teams remained the same this week. Those are ThunderRidge (5A), Holy Family (3A) and Stratton (1A).

The 5A poll added No. 9 Dakota Ridge, which beat preseason No. 4 Cherry Creek last weekend.

New to 3A are Valley (No. 7) and Basalt (No. 10). The 1A ranking added No. 9 Dove Creek.
