5A boys lacrosse poll adds three new teams

Three new teams dot this week's CHSAANow.com boys lacrosse rankings in 5A.

Joining are No. 7 Monarch, No. 9 Fort Collins and No. 10 Highlands Ranch.

Arapahoe stayed on top of the 5A ranking, while Regis Jesuit bumped up one place to No. 2. Cherry Creek is third, Kent Denver is fourth and Colorado Academy rounds out the top five.

There were no newcomers to the 4A ranking, though Aspen did make a large jump in going from No. 7 to No. 2 following a 4-0 start. That includes wins over preseason No. 10 Alexander Dawson and preseason No. 2 Air Academy.

Complete rankings for both classes are below.
