Regis Jesuit moved up to No. 2 from No. 4. Ralston Valley is fourth this week, and Rocky Mountain rounds out the top five.

Columbine bumped up one place from No. 7 to No. 6, Fairview went from No. 10 to No. 7 and Arapahoe held firm at No. 8.

5A's two newcomers this week are No. 9 Mountain Vista and No. 10 Dakota Ridge.

In 4A, Montrose remained at No. 1, and continued to be followed by No. 2 Windsor and No. 3 Valor Christian. Niwot made a big jump from No. 8 to No. 4, and Delta went from No. 7 to No. 5.

New to the 4A poll this week are No. 9 Lewis-Palmer and No. 10 Evergreen.

Holy Family continued to lead the 3A ranking, which added No. 6 Cedaredge, No. 7 Gunnison and No. 10 Bayfield.

The 2A poll added Sedgwick County at No. 8. Resurrection Christian stayed at No. 1.

In 1A, Stratton remained on top. That poll added No. 8 Peetz.
