Summer Collegiate Team Rankings

Cotuit Hangs On to No. 1 Spot,
Despite Logjam In Cape Standings

The Cotuit Kettleers have maintained their position atop Perfect Game’s weekly ranking of the nation’s top 30 summer-college league teams, even though they are having a difficult time shaking their closest competition in the Cape Cod League.

In all, five teams are within two points of one another atop the Cape standings, with Cotuit holding a slim lead with 20 points, based on 10 wins vs. five losses. Teams are awarded two points for a win and one for a tie. Chatham follows closely with 19 points, while Harwich, Hyannis and Falmouth all are at 18. All five teams are ranked in the top 17.

Cotuit has been the most dominant team of the five Cape teams with the league’s second-best batting average and earned run average overall, along with a decisive 72-43 run differential. The Kettleers have gotten dominant seasons from their starting staff with lefthander Alex Haines (Seton Hill, Pa.) and Jared Walsh (Georgia), and righthander Chris Ellis (Mississippi) allowing just two earned runs in a combined 44 innings of work. Haines hasn’t allowed a run in three starts, though doesn’t have a win to show for it.

Teams are ranked on the following criteria: won-loss record, league dominance, depth and quality of professional-level talent and the overall strength of the league, and must have at least a .500 record.
