U SPORTS TOP 10 | WVB NO. 3, MVB NO. 4, MT&F NO. 8, WT&F NO. 9

LANGLEY, British Columbia – For the second week in a row, Trinity Western has four teams in the U SPORTS Top 10, with women’s volleyball No. 3, men’s volleyball No. 4, men’s track and field No. 8 and women’s track and field No. 9.

After sitting atop the U SPORTS rankings for the last four weeks, the Spartans women’s volleyball team slipped to No. 3 after dropping back-to-back games against now No. 9 UBC.

On the men’s side, the Spartans come in at No. 4 after a weekend split with UBC saw TWU fall from No. 2 in the national rankings.

Both volleyball teams are on the road this weekend as they play Mount Royal Friday and Saturday in Calgary. The match-up on the men’s side features two of the top teams in the country, with the No. 3-ranked Cougars (13-3) taking on the No. 4 Spartans (12-4). The women’s match has the league-leading Spartans (16-2) against sixth-place MRU (9-9).

In track and field, the men’s team is ranked in the Top 10 for the third time this year, coming in at No. 8 this week, while the women’s team is in the rankings for the second straight week, slotting in at No. 9.

This Saturday will see the Spartans track and field teams compete in Harry Jerome Indoor Meet at the Richmond Olympic Oval in Richmond, B.C.
