Updated MIAA softball Top 25 poll
By Scott Barboza
While our top two squads remained steady this week, there was a whole lot of movement throughour our MIAA softball Top 25 poll this week.
Undefeated Central Catholic moved into the third spot, after New Bedford suffered its first loss of the season. It was a good week for the MVC overall as Dracut also hit a high point in the poll, hitting No. 6 after an impressive run at the Hudson school vacation week tournament, capped by a championship win over the No. 17 Hawks.
Somerset-Berkley, which knocked off the aforementioned Whalers, headlines the teams new to the poll this week. The Blue Raiders make their season debut at No. 15. Also breaking in this week were No. 24 Lynn Classical and No. 25 Bellingham.
The big mover of the week was Holy Name, which jumped up five spots to make its first appearanace in the top 10 this week.
