The regular season is only a few weeks away from reaching its conclusion, but the calendar hasn’t stopped the top teams in New England Hockey Journal’s Prep School Coaches Poll from piling up wins. Each of the top seven teams in the ninth NEHJ ranking of the season finished this past week without a loss, posting a combined 15-0 record.
While Salisbury remains in the No. 1 slot for the seventh straight week and eighth time in nine weeks, five teams improved their positioning from last week.
Lawrence continued its unbeaten season and moved into a second-place tie with Kimball Union. St. Sebastian’s earned its highest ranking of the season at No. 5 after dropping out for three straight weeks, while Exeter also makes a return to the poll for the third time in four weeks.
Nine 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.
