U SPORTS TOP 10 | MVB NO. 2, WVB NO. 2, MT&F NO. 6, WT&F NO. 10

LANGLEY, British Columbia – Trinity Western’s men’s and women’s volleyball teams moved up in the U SPORTS Top 10 this week, with both sides jumping up to No. 2 in the latest rankings, while the men’s track and field team moved into a tie for No. 6 and the women’s track and field team slotted in at No. 10.

Coming off back-to-back three-set wins over then-No. 3 Mount Royal, the Spartans men’s volleyball team climbed two spots to No. 2 and now trail only Brandon in the national rankings.

On the women’s side, a pair of wins over Mount Royal, coupled with the top-ranked Calgary Dinos losing, saw the Spartans move up one place to No. 2. TWU, who sat atop the polls for four straight weeks earlier this year, are only behind unbeaten Dalhousie.

Both volleyball teams are back on the road this weekend when they travel to Edmonton to play MacEwan Friday and Saturday.

In track and field, the men’s team moved up two spots into a tie with Laval for No. 6. The women’s team came in at No. 10, slipping one spot from last week’s Top 10.

This weekend, the track and field teams will compete in both Kamloops, B.C. at the Gary Reed Indoor Invitational and in Seattle at the Husky Classic.
