November 6, 2012, LANGLEY, British Columbia (ISN) – With both Trinity Western’s volleyball teams earning road sweeps of Regina this past weekend, neither team changed position in the latest CIS Top 10, as the women (3-1) remained No. 1 and the men (3-1) stayed at No. 2. The Spartans basketball, cross country and swimming teams all remained unranked.

The top-ranked Spartans women knocked off Regina 3-0 Friday and 3-1 Saturday as they have now won three in a row after falling to No. 2 UBC in their season-opener.

The men’s team made it a perfect road weekend for the Spartans as it won 3-2 Friday and 3-0 Saturday. Like the women, the men’s team has now won three consecutively after dropping the first game of the season to now-No. 6 UBC.

Both teams will be back in action Nov. 9-10 when they host Thompson Rivers University. The games will be streamed live on www.canadawest.tv.

On the basketball court, both the Spartans men’s and women’s teams dropped back-to-back games against UBC to open their Canada West seasons.

The Spartans women (0-2) fell 60-54 to the No. 10 T-Birds Friday and 75-52 Saturday while the men (0-2) lost 91-84 Friday and 77-66 Saturday to the No. 2 T-Birds. Both teams will be back on the court No. 9-10 when they travel to play Northern British Columbia. The games will be streamed live on www.canadawest.tv.

The Spartans cross country teams were off this weekend as they prepare for the CIS national championships, which will be contested Nov. 10 in London, Ont.

Trinity Western’s swimming teams competed at the SFU Clan Cup this weekend and were led by Nick Welychko, who had a team best third place finish in the 200m individual medley. The Spartans next meet is the Langley Olympians Swim Club Invitational, which runs Nov. 19-20.

Across the CIS, Guelph (women’s & men’s cross country), Toronto (men’s swimming), Windsor (women’s basketball), Carleton (men’s basketball), Trinity Western (women’s volleyball) and Alberta (men’s volleyball) all maintained their No. 1 status. Montreal was the lone team to shake things up at the top of the rankings in sports TWU plays as they overtook Calgary for top spot.

In cross country, Guelph heads to Saturday’s CIS championships in London, Ont., as the overwhelming favourite to once again claim the women’s and men’s team banners. The Gryphons have captured the last seven national titles in women’s competition and have won six consecutive men’s championships, both CIS record streaks.
