Long unbeaten streaks are a common theme among many of the team’s ranked in this season’s 11th New England Hockey Journal Prep School Coaches Poll.
A week without game action nearly cost Salisbury the top spot, but the winners of four straight games were able to hold off a No. 2 Kimball Union team that has not lost in over a month and remain at the top of the poll for the 10th time in 11 weeks.
There is very little change throughout the rest of the poll with Dexter Southfield moving into a third-place tie with St. Sebastian’s. Both of those teams are in the midst of at least 10-game unbeaten runs entering the stretch drive of the regular season.
In addition, Deerfield did make a one-spot jump to the No. 8 position this week, while Westminster is back among the ranked teams for the second time in four weeks as it is in the midst of a six-game unbeaten streak that has spanned throughout February.
