Fossil Ridge Boys Continue to Run Atop Colorado High School Rankings has released their fourth Colorado boys’ high school state rankings of 2017, and the top teams in both Class 4A (small schools) and 5A (big schools) have been dominant early in the season.

There has been little to no changes this week in the rankings, as most teams are focused on their B/C/JV athletes and their championship meets this past week.  There were a few dual meets, but not much has changed because of them.

2016 State Champions, Cheyenne Mountain High School continues to look good sitting at the top in the fifth round of rankings.  The team currently sits at 322 points, over 100 points ahead of second place Thompson Valley who sits at 209.

The two-time defending state champions of 5A, Fossil Ridge High School continues the streak of being the top rank, sitting at 300 points. They sit over 50 points ahead of second place Cherry Creek(231).

The team rankings are calculated like a championship swim meet, with adjustments for athletes ranked in more than two events so that the results are not skewed too much by one athlete or pool. Top 16 in each event score, and times are pulled from MaxPreps. Rob Nasser, the creator of and head coach of Mountain Vista High School (and formerly of Valor Christian High School), maintains the rankings. The 2017 Colorado Boy’s State Championship meet runs from May 19th and 20th. Class 4A will be held at USAFA, Colorado Springs, and Class 5A will be held at VMAC, Thornton.
