Fossil Ridge (5A), Rampart (4A), and Longmont(3A) lead the rankings to open the 2017-18 season with Fairview (5A), Cheyenne Mountain (4A), and Pueblo County (3A) following closely behind. While the top 2 in 5A have distanced themselves from the field by a wide margin and are 16 points apart, 4A and 3A are very close, with the gap in each case being 9 and 1 point respectively and the rest of the field is much closer the them as well.
The season also looks to be very competitive between individual event leaders with only a few cases of there being one person who is far ahead of everyone else. Exceptions to this look to be Fran Cable in 5A 1M Diving (40+ point margin), Colleen Gillilan in 5A 100 Fly (nearly 2 seconds), Cat Wright in the 4A 200 Free (nearly 3 seconds), Ella Kirschke in the 4A 200 IM (4+ seconds), Lillianna Brooks in the 3A 200 Free (4.5 seconds), and Sydney Silver in the 3A 100 Back (2.5 seconds).
