With a new season underway in earnest during the first week of April, New England Baseball Journal is pleased to announce the return of the weekly Prep School Coaches Poll.
A new season hasn’t changed the way things look at the top as defending Central New England Prep champion Phillips Andover retains its No. 1 spot. The Big Blue is one of seven teams that finished last season as a ranked team, while three have jumped into a top-10 slot after receiving votes in the preseason edition of NEBJ’s poll.
In addition, 15 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.
Those interested in participating can email Joshua Kummins (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
