Fossil Ridge Boys Rank First In 3rd Colorado HS Rankings

  1 Olivia McLain | April 21st, 2017 | High School, News

PrepSwimCo.com has released their third 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 continues to look good with the top spot in the 4A team rankings.   The team sits a 332 points, over 150 points ahead of second place, Thompson Valley.  In the last rankings, Thompson Valley sat at 7th place, but took a jump to 2nd. Thompson sits just 80 points ahead between 2nd and 9th.

 

RThe two-time defending state 5A champions (2015, 2016) Fossil Ridge, continues to look very comfortable sitting in first in the Class 5A rankings with 332 points.  Fossil Ridge has been consistently at the top the last three rankings.  Following in second is Cherry Creek with 226 points and Regis in third with 221.

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 prepswimco.com 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.
