Pre-Nationals Poll

Post by Victor Prieto » Sun May 24, 2015 3:14 pm

In January, Matt Weiner ran a poll of a panel of experts (high school coaches and tournament organizers from around the country and beyond). Enough panel members decided to continue with the planned pre-nationals and post-nationals poll. The results of the pre-nationals poll are posted below. As the SSNCT has already concluded, we opted to dispense with the small school top 10.

The full results can be found at this link. The top 25 schools have been posted below.
