Hayden’s Friday night loss to No. 1 Dayspring Christian didn’t cost it a presence in the Denver Post prep football rankings released Monday afternoon. The Tigers dropped to seventh place, where they started the season. They’re the highest one-loss team in the poll and one of three top-10 teams that have lost a game.
Dayspring remains the top team, garnering eight of the 12 first-place votes. Akron is second and Hoehne is third, each grabbing at least one first-place vote. Elbert is fourth, Norwood is fifth and Haxtun is sixth.
Soroco, which received one point a week ago, had five in the new week’s poll, setting them essentially in 14th place.
