Defending New England Elite 8 champion Williston has showed in the early going that whoever is planning to wrest that title away from the Wildcats has their work cut our for them.

In the first in-season HNIB News Girls Prep Top 15, Williston (7-0-0) takes over at #1, following an impressive four-game run at the Harrington Tournament. The Wildcats, one of two undefeated teams left, next see the ice on January 1 against Cushing.

The other unbeaten – Phillips Andover (7-0-0) – jumps all the way up to #2. The Big Blue took home the title at the Patsy Odden Tournament. Team depth will go a long way this year. They are off until a January 7 date with Choate.

Pre-season #1 Nobles (6-2-0) stands at #3. The ‘Dawgs were stunned on opening day by New Hampton, and lost to Williston at the Harrington Tournament. Next up is Dexter Southfield on January 4.

#4 Loomis Chaffee may only be 3-3-1 heading into holiday break, but two of those losses have come to Andover and Nobles. The Pelicans return to action January 6 when they travel to new #10 Milton Academy (5-2-0).

#5 Tabor (5-2-0) suffered a pair of early-season losses to Loomis Chaffee and Kent and drops a few spots. They get right back into the first on January 7 when the Seawolves get Williston.

Watkins Tournament champion Cushing (7-2-0) stays put at #6. The Penguins were very impressive in their tournament win and losses have come to Williston and Tabor. They are looking forward to another crack agaisnt Williston on New Year’s Day.

Other newcomers in the Top 15 this time around includes Westminster (5-3-0) at #11 and Worcester Academy (6-2-1) at #14.
