U SPORTS TOP 10 | MVB NO. 1, WBB NO. 9, WOMEN’S T&F NO. 10

LANGLEY, British Columbia – Trinity Western has three teams in the U SPORTS Top 10 this week, with the men’s volleyball team remaining at No. 1, the women’s basketball team moving up to No. 9 and the women’s track and field team entering the rankings at No. 10.

Following a weekend split with No. 2-ranked UBC, the men’s volleyball team (20-2) held its place atop the national rankings. With just two games left in the regular season – TWU travels to play Thompson Rivers Friday and Saturday – the Spartans hold control of their destiny, with a pair of wins this weekend securing first place in the Canada West standings.

On the basketball court, the Spartans women’s team moved up to No. 9 in the latest poll, which marks an all-time high in the program’s history. After a 16-4 regular season, TWU had a first-round playoff bye this past weekend and will now prepare to host Alberta in the Canada West quarter-finals, with the best-of-three series starting Thursday (7 p.m.) at the Langley Events Centre.

The Spartans women’s track and field team moved into the Top 10 for the first time this season after an impressive weekend in Seattle at the University of Washington’s Husky Classic and Indoor Open.
