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!!!!

Week 4 of the boys rankings following two bigger invites - Jeffco & Cherry Creek, have two big jumps in each 5A with Arapahoe moving up 4 places to 4th place from 8th and in 4A, Montrose jumps 5 spots from 9th to 4th.  Both teams were in the Jeffco Invite while Creek lengthened it's first place margin over Regis and Greeley West and Discovery Canyon are in a near tie at the top of 4A.

Week 3 of the boys rankings looks to have brought both 5A & 4A into a much more competitive battle at the top.  Greeley West has re-emerged on top of the 4A rankings over last week's leader Discovery Canyon by 22, while 5A still has Cherry Creek on top but Regis has shrunk the lead from 100 points to 27.

Week 2 of the boys rankings and we are now starting to see some of the faster swimmers coming in and impacting the rankings after many were sitting out until sectionals or only did 1 or 2 meets prior to their sectional meet.  The dual meet between Regis and Cherry Creek (CC won - 176.5 to 138.5) resulted in them being launched into the top spot in 5A by 100 points, while Discovery Canyon jumped from 3rd to 1st in the 4A rankings after a successful meet at the Cheyenne Mountain Invite.

Colorado Boys Swimming and Diving Rankings Posted Here - (4-3-2019)

First rankings of the season bring a dramatically different - and familiar landscape...

Regis is the familiar atop the 5A rankings, though only by a handful of points ahead of a rising Cherry Creek team, and Greeley West is the new team to sit atop the 4A rankings with a 70 point cushion over last year's champion Windsor.  

These be the rules...

  • A team scores points just like a championship meet by placing an athlete or relay in the top 20 and points are awarded in that fashion.
  • Adjustments have been made that account for athletes ranked in more than 2 individual events so that the scores are not skewed from one athlete/school. Adjustments have also been made for the "rule of 4" that mandates that only 4 competitors from the same school can score points in each event.
  • The main reason for this is to hopefully generate more publicity for all of the kids who have worked so hard for it and swimming and diving in general.
  • This is geared more for prediction of how the state championship meets will turn out, rather than how a dual meet against two teams will fare.
  • Times/scores have been pulled in only from data submitted to MaxPreps.  If you do not see times in there that should be, then you most likely did not submit them.  This should help to motivate people/coaches to submit them in a timely manner.  (Hint: Submit your meets to MaxPreps ASAP)
  • An exhaustive listing of all submitted times is located at
Enjoy & Have a great season!!

Colorado Girls Swimming and Diving Psych Sheet Rankings (2-5-2019)

The Psych Sheets have now been posted and the change from Top-16 scoring to Top-20 may come in to play when it comes to the upper middle rankings in each division.  The top spots look to have a wider margin of a lead, but as we have always seen, having a team land in finals rather than consols a few times and the picture changes dramatically.  Also DQ's on relays are nearly fatal for any team trying to climb into the top 10.  Good luck to all of the girls this weekend!!

Colorado Girls High School Swimming and Diving Rankings Posted Here - (1-23-2019)

Some small moves in each division mostly from the last invitational at Jeffco this past weekend.  Evergreen (3A), Arvada West (4A), and Chatfield (5A) moved up as a result.  5A looks to be Fairview's to lose right now, while 4A (Rampart & Cheyenne Mountain) and 3A (Pueblo County, Evergreen, & Kent Denver) will be a much more competitive meet.  

No rankings next week!  Next rankings posted on Sunday, February 3rd with Psych Sheet rankings immediately after they are available February 4th or 5th.

Colorado Girls High School Swimming and Diving Rankings Posted Here - (1-15-2019)

Same leaders on top, but 4A is VERY close and several changes in all 3 divisions among the top 10 after several big invitationals this past weekend (Smoky Hill, Grand Junction, Mountain Range, Hornet/Pueblo County).  Teams will be wrapping up most of their dual meets and invitationals this week as they start into their championship phases of the season.  Several leagues will be hosting their JV/B/C league meets, so there will be one more ranking next week, and then the following rankings will include League Championships and then State psych sheets in rapid succession as we roll into the State Championship meets From Feb 7-9.

Fairview (5A), Rampart (4A), and Pueblo County (3A) still lead the rankings as we clear the halfway point of the season and we get closer to the League and State meets in a few weeks!  Fairview put a sizable margin between them and second place Cherry Creek, while Fossil Ridge has jumped back into the fray and is now 3rd after two recent meets that provided opportunity to show that they are still formidable even with a major departing class.  Rampart also put more distance between themselves and second place Cheyenne Mountain, while Pueblo County and Kent Denver remain closer with only 21 points separating them.
