News

Published: 7 Feb 2012

 

OTTAWA (CIS) - Three McGill teams are listed in this week's CIS Top 10 national rankings and there are new national leaders this week in Canadian Interuniversity Sport men's hockey and women's track and field.

 

In men's hockey, the Westerm Mustangs move up to No. 1 for the first time since 2001-02, a campaign that ended with their lone University Cup triumph. In women's track and field, the reigning CIS champion Windsor Lancers move up three positions to top the national rankings for the first time this season.

 

In other CIS sports, Regina (women's basketball), Carleton (men's basketball), Wilfrid Laurier (women's hockey), UBC (women's swimming), Toronto (men's swimming), Windsor (men's track and field), UBC (women's volleyball), Trinity Western (men's volleyball), Brock (women's wrestling) and Concordia (men's wrestling) all maintain their No. 1 status.

 

In women's basketball, the top-ranked Cougars (17-0) showed over the weekend why they've been ranked No. 1 the entire season as they swept a two-game series at home against No. 8 Alberta, 81-76 and 84-70. Regina, which has already secured first place in Canada West's Prairie Division, visits Lethbridge (6-12) Friday and Saturday, before closing out conference play at No. 3 Saskatchewan on Feb. 18.

 

In men's hoops, Carleton easily improved to 18-0 in league play with an 86-57 home win over Ottawa, last Friday. The Ravens, who have long clinched first place in the OUA East, visit RMC (0-18) and Queen's (2-16) this weekend, and will then wrap up the regular season at home against Toronto and Ryerson, on Feb. 17-18.

 

In women's hockey, Laurier (23-0-1) captured the OUA regular season title thanks to a 5-2 win over UOIT and a 7-0 shutout against Queen's. The Golden Hawks end league play this weekend when they host Brock (11-12-1) and No. 6 Guelph (18-5-1).

 

In men's hockey, Western (21-2-3) move up two positions to No. 1 thanks to a 5-1 victory over Waterloo and a 7-4 defeat of Lakehead, combined to one loss apiece last week by UNB, which remains at No. 2, and McGill, which drops to No. 3. The Mustangs, who have secured top spot in the OUA West standings, complete their regular schedule with tilts against UOIT (5-20-1) on Thursday and York (12-10-4) on Saturday.

 

In women's volleyball, UBC (17-1), which will finish first in Canada West, swept a two-game set against Brandon last weekend, 3-0 and 3-0. The Thunderbirds face a nice challenge on Friday and Saturday as they visit No. 5 Trinity Western (12-6) to conclude conference play.

 

In men's volleyball, Trinity Western (17-1) was impressive last weekend in a pair of road wins over No. 7 Calgary, 3-0 and 3-1. The Spartans can claim the Canada West regular season crown at home this weekend when they host No. 6 UBC (10-8) for a pair.
