LANGLEY, British Columbia –
For the second week in a row, the Trinity Western women’s soccer team sits atop the Blackberry CIS Top 10 rankings while the men’s team remains third.

Both men’s and women’s Spartans squads have yet to play a game, but have maintained their respective national positions based upon last year’s season ending rankings.

Going back to the 2009 season, the women’s Spartans have now been ranked No. 1 in Canada for nine of the past 10 weeks and have been in the Top 10 for 15 straight weeks.

Both teams kick off their Canada West schedule this week as the men’s team visits UBC Friday at 7:00 p.m., while the women’s team is on the road for a pair of games playing in Lethbridge Saturday at 12:00 p.m. and in Calgary Sunday at 12:00 p.m.
