POWERADE Colorado Baseball Rankings: Week 1

After games ending Monday, March 26

It's always tough to really grasp what teams are truly top of their classifications early in the season, but we have forged ahead anyway in Week 1 of the POWERADE Colorado Weekly Rankings. The reason it's so tough is because many teams play unbalanced schedules. Take Regis, for example, which started its season with current No. 1 Cherry Creek and later plays top teams from Oregon and Arizona. Rocky Mountain, to its credit, has embarked on a tour of baseball-rich Arizona, playing some of the state's top teams. As a result, the records are skewed. But it's early, so we'll wait to see if those teams bounce back from some early adversity and get back on the winning side of things. In the meantime, there are plenty of teams getting things done at home, including a host of teams on the bubble who are just waiting for their chance to crack the top 10.

1. Cherry Creek (4-1) Last week: No. 4

2. Highlands Ranch (3-1) Last week: No. 1

Cheyenne Mountain (5-1) Last week: No. 3
