Four teams ranked in this week’s New England Hockey Journal’s Prep School Coaches Poll improved upon their status from the first ranking of February, but the top clubs in the region haven’t changed.
Salisbury and Kimball Union remain in the top two spots this week, but the Wildcats are in sole possession of No. 2 for the sixth time in 10 weeks this season after Lawrence was handed its first defeat against a rising St. Sebastian’s squad. The Arrows find themselves at their highest position of the season in the NEHJ ranks.
Nine of the 10 teams ranked last week earned their spots again. The lone change involves rivals Andover and Exeter.
Ten other teams also received consideration in at least one submitted ballot. Teams receive 10 points for a first-place vote, nine for a second-place vote, eight for a third-place vote, etc.
