Colorado Girls High School Swimming and Diving Rankings Posted Here - (1-15-2020)

Cherry Creek (5A), Cheyenne Mountain (4A), and Durango (3A) still remain the top teams this week, but the gaps are *VERY* close.  In 5A, Cherry Creek leads Fairview by 3 points.  In 4A, Cheyenne Mountain leads Mullen by 7 points, and in 3A, Durango leads Erie by 8 points!  It's great to see this title contention and just about anything can swing these into the other team's favor.

Colorado Girls High School Swimming and Diving Rankings Posted Here - (1-8-2020)

Cherry Creek (5A), Cheyenne Mountain (4A), and Durango (3A) open this season on top of their respective rankings, and in each class, it's still very competitive at the top.  With some good meets on the schedule over the next two weeks, you can expect the rankings to be very fluid (pun intended)!

Colorado Boys Swimming and Diving Psych Sheet Rankings (5-13-2019)

The Psych Sheets have now been posted and for the most part, teams have held to their post-league postions with a few minor exceptions.  5A looks to have a solid #1 in Cherry Creek with Fossil Ridge and Regis in pursuit, though they both are over 100 points behind.  4A also has a strong leader in Discovery Canyon, though Silver Creek is looking at trying to battle them for the title, though a 64 point gap will also not be trivial to overcome.  Good luck to everyone!  Schedule for the meet is here.  Tickets for the meet can be found here.

Colorado Boys Swimming and Diving Rankings Posted Here - (5-12-2019)

Post-League Rankings have some great swims (Miller - 5A 200 Free, Broomfield 4A Relays) but it also leaves several questions...

Can Regis make up a 90+ point gap between them and Cherry Creek?  Neither team went "Full send" in their league meets.  Last year Regis was 25 points behind Fossil Ridge in the same rankings to pull off a last-swim relay win to take the 5A title.

In 4A, Discovery Canyon, Greeley West, and Silver Creek have traded off the top relay spot all season.  Currently, Discovery Canyon has regained that position but realistically, any of the 3 have a chance.  A possible impact could be the choices that are made for events and if schools have others in what might be "weak" events.  The 200 IM and 500 Free look to have gaps in them because many of the current top 20 swimmers may not swim those events because they are seeded higher in other events.  This means that if schools are looking for "free points", they should look at moving kids into those events because they have a better chance to score than other events.  

Also in 4A... While Broomfield has the top spot in all 3 relays, it's with the same quartet of boys.  That's not going to work at State, so which of the 2 will they ride with, or will they split it up and try to cover all 3 with a couple of additional boys?  Mathematically, you can cover all 3 relays with 6 athletes, but individual event choices will probably come into play and may determine the final answer.

Colorado Boys Swimming and Diving Rankings Posted Here - (5-1-2019)

Week 5 of the boys rankings have little change with the exception of Rocky Mountain jumping from 8th to 5th in 5A.  In 4A, previous leader Greeley West has been dispatched to 3rd by Discovery Canyon (2nd) and Silver Creek (1st).  The 4A meet should be quite the event to see!  One note on 4A... This week's rankings is starting to show an impact of swimmers ranking high and then vacating events which means that events like the 100 Fly, 200 IM, and 500 Free could be carry impact for teams that have swimmers at state in those events who aren't currently ranking in the top 20 or even 30!  

No rankings next week as the B/C/JV athletes have their big league meets this week.  Tweet them out and mention @PrepSwimCO and we'll re-tweet it!  They've earned it!!!!
