Coaches Poll: Sept. 16


Crazy, wild, movement across all of the rankings. It's a testament to how revealing the past few weeks have been on the course as we sift through Colorado cross country 2020 edition. 



At first glance: As mentioned above, plenty of movement... Mountain Vista remained on top of the boy's poll. But the story this week has got to be the ascension of the Heritage boys, who climbed five spots to No. 4. Newcomers to this week's poll were Fossil Ridge, Fruita-Monument, and Cherry Creek.

In the girl's poll the top three remained in the top three, though Valor Christian has taken over the top spot. Newcomers to this week's poll were Chatfield and Fairview.



At first glance: The Cheyenne Mountain boys remain on top - but not by much. Niwot came in just one vote back at No. 2.  The big mover this week was Centaurus, who leapt to the No. 3 spot.

The Niwot girls were a unanimous No. 1, once again. The story this week is the Thompson Valley girls, who climbed four spots to the No. 5. Newcomers to this week's poll include Lewis-Palmer and Eagle Valley. 



At first glance: We've got hot race brewing among the boys... The Classical Academy took over the top of the poll after beating Frontier Academy - though the two teams were only separated by one vote. There were plenty of big stories this week, as Holy Family, who leapt a staggering six spots to No. 3, Faith Christian climbed four spots to No. 4, and previously unranked Gunnison stormed the poll to land at No. 5. 

Additional newcomers to the poll this week were Jefferson Academy and Resurrection Christian. 

On the girl's side The Classical Academy remains on top of the poll, while Basalt climbed to the No. 2 spot. The big jump this week came from Aspen, who climbed three spots to No. 5. Newcomers to week included Liberty Common and Frontier Academy.



At first glance: There was plenty movement around the boy's poll this week, but not on top - Heritage Christian remained No. 1. Behind them, however, was another story. Rocky Ford made a big jump this week to No. 3, while Yuma, St. Mary's, and Thomas Maclaren jumped into the rankings.

On the girl's side of the poll Buena Vista was a clear No. 1 following their impressive performance at the Cheyenne Mountain Stampede.
