Fossil Ridge Boys Hold Seat Atop Colorado State 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.

2016 State Champions, Cheyenne Mountain High School, still continues to look good sitting at the top spot in the fourth round of rankings.  The team sits at 308 points over 90 points ahead of second place, Thompson Valley who continues to sit in second place. Valor Christian, took a jump from 8th place and it now sitting at third place at 192 points.

The two-time defending state champions of 5A, Fossil Ridge, continues the streak of top rank with 309 points.  Fossil Ridge is over 90 points ahead of second place rank, Cherry Creek who sits at 214. Regis continues to sit at third rank with 190 points. Fairview High School sits at fourth place, moving up three spots from the last rankings.

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.
