It might be too early to say that Cheyenne Mountain is back at a championship level, but a 11-0 start to the season has certainly gotten the attention of voters across the state.

Fresh off a win over Falcon on Thursday and Canon City on Saturday, the Indians are the new No. 1 in the Class 4A CHSAANow.com baseball rankings.

The Indians only broke into the poll a week ago and after leaping over Northridge, Windsor and Ponderosa, they are looking closer and closer to being in championship contention once again.

Valor Christian made a decent jump this week, gaining three spots to land No. 4. 

Silver Creek is the only team to join the poll, coming in at No. 9

Lamar regains the top spot in the 3A poll after being overtaken by league rival La Junta last week. 

University gains some ground to come in at No. 3 as does Manitou Springs who jumps a spot to land at No. 5.

Eaton rejoins the top 10 this week, rounding out the 3A at No. 10.

In 5A, Rock Canyon holds on to the top spot in the poll. Mountain Range, however, made a four-spot jump to come in at No. 2.

Cherry Creek gets back into the top three, getting a few first-place votes in the process.

Fruita Monument (No. 8) and Legacy (No. 9) are the two newcomers to the 5A rankings.

Paonia held on to the top spot in the 2A poll, as did the top four overall teams from last week's rankings.

Rocky Ford is two spots better this week at No. 7.

Lyons is the only new team in the 2A poll, coming at No. 9 this week.

Holly also held on to its No. 1 ranking, hanging on to the top spot in the 1A poll. Eads (No. 2) and Fleming (No. 3) also held on to their positions from a week ago. 

At No. 8, Kiowa is new to this week's top 10, as is Granada who rounds out the poll at No. 10.
