Nine OUA teams ranked No. 1 in latest CIS Top 10 rankings

OTTAWA (CIS) – The Trinity Western University Spartans are the new team to beat in CIS women's volleyball. A week after tying the UBC Okanagan Heat for No. 1, the Spartans edged their provincial rivals by a single point in the new national coaches' poll.

In other CIS sports, Saskatchewan (women's basketball / men's hockey), Ryerson (men's basketball), Guelph (women's hockey), Toronto (women's & men's swimming / women's track and field), Windsor (men's track and field), McMaster (men's volleyball) and Brock (women's & men's wrestling) all hold on to their pole position.

In women's volleyball, Trinity Western and UBC Okanagan are tied atop the Canada West standings with sparkling 17-1 records with six games remaining in conference play. The Heat drop to second place in this week's national rankings with 57.5 points despite a two-game sweep of No. 6 UBC this past weekend. The Spartans, who enjoyed a break in their league schedule, earned 58.5 points in the new poll.
