Bridgewater-Raynham starts the season ranked No. 1 in our statewide MIAA softball Top 25 poll.

The Trojans, who spent a good portion of last season in the top spot, lost just one game last season, coming in the Division 1 South final, look to take the next step forward behind a pair of All-State performers in pitcher Sarah Dawson and shortstop Madi Shaw.

Here are a couple other points of note:

South up for grabs: While B-R nabs the top spot to start, the Division 1 South race should be compelling throughout, with all of the three top teams in our poll hailing from within the district. Silver Lake is on the Trojans' heels at No. 2 while North Attleborough checks in at No. 3.

Third time's a charm?: Burlington begins the season in the Top 25 for the third straight season. The two-time Division 2 state finalists and North sectional champions are looking toward a third straight trip to Worcester State, but hope to come away with some hardware after twice being knocked off by Central champion Grafton in the state final.

The Red Devils start the season at No. 7, while Grafton enters at No. 13.
