BLACKBERRY - CIS TOP 10 TUESDAY (#8)
Men’s volleyball remains No. 1, Women’s soccer No. 2

LANGLEY, British Columbia –
For Trinity Western there were no changes in this week’s CIS Top 10 compared to last week as the men’s volleyball team remained at No. 1, the women’s soccer team stayed at No. 2 and the women’s volleyball team maintained its spot at No. 10. The men’s soccer team and both cross country teams remained unranked.

After the women’s soccer team put together its fifth six-point weekend of the year, with wins over Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Spartans improved their record to 10-1-1 and only trail Montreal (11-0-1) in this week’s rankings. The women will wrap up their Canada West regular season this weekend on the road against Lethbridge and Calgary.

The men’s soccer team remained unranked after beating Saskatchewan 4-2 but losing to Alberta 3-2. With a 6-4-2 record, the Spartans sit in fourth in the conference and will also finish the Canada West regular season on the road against Lethbridge and Calgary.

Both the men’s and women’s volleyball rankings were unchanged from last week as Western Ontario was the only Top 10 team on either side to play this past weekend. The Spartans men (No. 1) and women (No. 10) will open up the Canada West regular season this weekend on the road against Saskatchewan.

After both the men’s and women’s cross country teams finished third out of four teams at the UBC Invitational at Jericho Beach this past weekend, both remained unranked. The Spartans will send Alison Jackson, Fiona Benson and Blair Johnston to the B.C. Championships this weekend in Aldergrove. The next race for the whole team will be the CIS Championships at Laval.
