Cherry Creek leads CO soccer teams in POWERADE FAB 50
By By Christopher Parish
After three weeks of the POWERADE FAB 50 Soccer Rankings, Cherry Creek continues to represent Colorado well in the national ranks.
The Eagles, ranked No. 11 in the nation, remain perfect at 3-0-0 following two wins last week — a 3-1 triumph over Fairview and a 1-0 win over Mountain Vista. Sophomore Jacob Hanlin has had the hot hand so far — he has three goals and an assist in the team's first three games. His brother Karsten, a senior, has yet to record a point but is one of the state's best players.
ESPNHS has also put together state rankings for some teams, including Colorado. According to soccer expert Sheldon Shealer, the state's top three are as follows...
1. Cherry Creek (3-0-0)
2. Ponderosa (1-0-0)
3. Mountain Vista (1-0-3)
