This season’s second installment of the New England Hockey Journal Prep School Coaches Poll features change at the top through a few weeks of regular-season action.
The latest poll saw a clear No. 1 among the coaches after Salisbury and Kimball Union finished last week at the top with 72 points apiece. This week, Nobles jumped all the way up from receiving votes to being ranked first after starting the season with four consecutive wins. Four other teams also received first-place consideration.
Brian Day’s Bulldogs are one of four new teams ranked this week, but it was Deerfield that made the biggest jump to being a ranked team as it did not receive any votes in the first ranking. In addition, a 4-1 mark has helped Andover receive top-10 votes for the first time.
The poll, featuring head coaches from around the region across all leagues, will be released each Tuesday afternoon during the season here on hockeyjournal.com.
