Girls soccer rankings: Wild 5A poll sees all kinds of change

When the dust settled on the first set of girls soccer rankings since the preseason, much had changed.

Ultimately, it was Columbine that emerged as the new No. 1 team in a transformed Class 5A poll that added three new teams, and also all kinds of tumult following an early two weeks where just about everyone was beat by someone else.

The Rebels, off to a 3-1-0 start, received just one first-place vote out of the 10 in the classification, but rose to the top with 84 overall points, ahead of new No. 2 Broomfield (four first-place votes, 73 points).

Mountain Vista dropped one spot to No. 3, Cherokee Trail jumped from No. 10 to No. 4, and Cherry Creek — unranked in the preseason — rounds out the top five.

Rocky Mountain was the lone team to hold its spot at No. 6, Regis Jesuit is up to No. 7, and newcomers Legacy (No. 8) and Ralston Valley (No. 9) joined the fray. Grandview, the preseason No. 1 which is off to an 0-2-0 start, fell to No. 10.

Each of the three No. 1 teams in the other classes held firm. Those are Valor Christian (4A), Kent Denver (3A) and Dawson (2A).

The 3A poll added No. 8 Manitou Springs and No. 10 SkyView Academy, but there were no new teams in 4A or 2A.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association.

New polls are released each Monday during the regular season.
