Schools Squash Team Poll for the Week of Feb 11 1999

Reported 2.11.99 by Ron Beck

Squashtalk introduces the first-ever interscholastic teams poll

The SquashTalk Interscholastic Coaches Poll: Second Week - Boy's Poll

[ Last week's poll: Feb 4, 1999 ]

Much Movement in the SquashTalk Interscholastic Poll: SquashTalk has initiated the interscholastic teams polls as a service to the squash community. The first poll, posted last week, attracted a lot of interest and discussion. We have been able to include additional coaches in this second poll. With better information from the Connecticut and Philadelphia area teams, the new poll reflects a more accurate assessment of the New England with the Philadelphia teams' relative strengths. Also, some interesting results have caused some movement in the rankings. This week (2/11/99) we present the second boy's high school teams poll. This poll will be updated on a weekly basis until the end of the season. We have had a positive response from many of the high school coaches, and expect to have more coaches participating week-to-week, improving the accuracy of the poll. The first GIRLS team poll will be introduced before the end of this week. Your feedback is welcome!
