While the team at the top remains the same, there has been some considerable shuffling in this the first in-season HNIB News Boys Prep Top 15.

Avon Old Farms (9-0-0) was our pre-season #1, and after sweeping four games at its Christmas Classic, the Winged Beavers remain there. They are off until a January 7th matchup with Taft.

With ranked teams knocking each other off withh regularity in the early-going, Cushing (5-0-3) jumps up to #2. The Penguins are coming off a win at the Groton/Lawrence Holiday Tournament and getting ready to host the Watkins Tournament next week.

#3 Salisbury (7-2-1) had a pair of early-season losses to Taft and Kent, but the Crimson Knights went 3-0-1 at the Flood-Marr Tournament and look ahead to a date with Brunswick on January 6th.

A big mover since the pre-season is #4 Nobles (6-1-1). The Bulldogs are off to an exceptional start that has included wins over Kimball Union and Dexter Southfield. They will face Williston next on December 30.

And how about Milton Academy (6-1-1)? The Mustangs check in at #5 after not being ranked in the pre-season. They won the Flood Marr championship, allowing just two goals in four games. Up next is Belmont Hill on January 5.

#6 Kimball Union (7-4-0) stumbled a bit at Flood Marr, losing to Nobles, and then Milton in the final. On the horizon for the Wildcats in the True Prep Cup and a date with Culver Academy on January 6.

Also making debuts in the rankings this week are #9 Tabor (6-1-1) and #10 Tilton (9-1-0).
