Colorado Preps has released the Power Five rankings for week nine.  Here’s a look at Class 3A.
1.       Discovery Canyon
2.       Pueblo East
3.       Silver Creek
4.       Fort Morgan
5.       Lewis Palmer
Next 3:  Palisade, Holy Family, Rifle
Teams to watch:  Mead, Longmont, Conifer
Discovery Canyon’s late rally at Canon City on Friday kept the Thunder in the top spot and the rest of the top five in the same spots as a week ago.  The Thunder trailed much of the game but scored late to pick up a 35-34 decision on the road.  The remaining top four teams all picked up victories by double figures.  Outside the rankings, Holy Family made the most noise as they defeated Mead in a first place battle inside the Tri Valley.  That moves the Tigers into the next 3 list and drops Mead down into the teams to watch.
