The top pair in New England Baseball Journal’s Prep School Coaches Poll is unchanged.
Andover continues to hold the No. 1 slot after continuing its unbeaten run with two wins over archrival Exeter. The Big Blue is one of three teams atop the poll that gained at least 100 points in the voting, with St. Sebastian’s and Taft behind. Taft also boasts a no-loss record and reached double digits in the win column this past week.
Traditional regional power Salisbury makes its way back into the ranks. The Crimson Knights are in the midst of a five-game winning streak.
In addition, 14 other teams received top-10 consideration on at least one coach’s ballot. As a refresher, teams receive 10 points for a first-place vote, nine for a second-place vote, eight for a third-place vote, etc. Coaches from around New England serve as voting panelists for the poll, which is released each Tuesday during the season.
