There is some early season jostling for spots inside the statewide volleyball rankings but the second set of polls keeps four of the five number one clubs atop their respective class. The change is found in Class 2A where Wiggins jumps to the top spot. They moved past both Meeker and Denver Christian this week after finishing second at the Kit Carson Invitational last Saturday.
Below are the top 10 clubs in each class with a quick list of the next five. Rankings are presented by CHSAA and are based on votes from coaches throughout the state.

Also in Class 2A, Sedgwick County shot up seven spots to number two after beating a pair of ranked 1A opponents in Haxtun and Briggsdale. Preseason number one Meeker has yet to see the court and dropped to third this week. Holyoke and Limon are newcomers to that poll.
In Class 1A, Fleming is up one to second after winning the Kit Carson tournament title. Briggsdale is also up two and Haxtun up three despite the losses to Sedgwick County. Stratton enters the poll at 10th.
In Class 3A, the top three places are unchanged from last week. Resurrection Christian earned a first place vote and jumped from sixth to fourth. Alamosa enters at number eight.
In Class 4A, Thompson Valley, Thomas Jefferson and Niwot are all newcomers to the rankings. Another minor change saw Mead and Windsor exchange the third and fourth spot.
in Class 5A, there are no changes this week among the top six. Pueblo West enters at number 10 with Legend climbing two positions to seventh.
