MMA Football Picked #7 In NEFC
It's a new look for the New England Football Conference and NEFC member Maine Maritime Academy. The league lost half of its teams at the conclusion of last season when most of the Massachusetts schools formed a new conference.
That new league is called the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference.
That leaves schools such Curry, WNE, MMA, Endicott, MIT, Salve Regina, Nichols and US Coast Guard Academy to make up the NEFC.
MMA in Castine is picked to finish 7th in the pre-season coaches poll. The Mariners suffered through an 0-9 season last year. Head coach Chris McKenney is in his 13th year and is the school's winningest coach.
The Mariners open the season at home this Saturday against Anna Maria College.
1. Endicott College 59 points (4)
2. Salve Regina University 53 points (3)
3. Curry College & WNE 43 points
5. MIT 34 points (1)
6. U.S. Coast Guard Academy 28 points
7. MMA & Nichols 14 points
