Centaurus' girls lacrosse team has toppled two No. 1 teams thus far this season. It follows that they should eventually get their turn at the top.

Well, that time has arrive. The Warriors (9-1) received six of the eight-first place votes in this week's CHSAANow.com girls lacrosse poll to move into the No. 1 spot.

Their latest victory over a No. 1 team came against Air Academy last Tuesday. Centaurus followed that with a 12-10 win over then-No. 7 Kent Denver on Friday.

Chatfield moved up one place to No. 2, while Air Academy dropped to No. 3 this week.

Arapahoe is fourth, and Cherry Creek fifth.

Rampart was the lone newcomer to this week's ranking, joining at No. 10.
