February 12, 2013, Langley, BC (ISN) – With a pair of road splits against Alberta this past weekend, the Trinity Western women’s volleyball team remained at No. 2 and the men’s volleyball team moved up to No. 3 in the latest CIS Top 10.

After a successful weekend at the University of Washington’s Husky Classic and Open meets, the Spartans women’s track and field team moved up to No. 6. Both basketball teams and the men’s track and field team remained unranked.

In the final rankings of the season, the Spartans women’s volleyball team (19-3) stayed at No. 2 for the fifth straight week following a weekend in which they beat Alberta 3-2 Saturday and lost 3-1 Friday. The Spartans will open the Canada West playoffs at home Feb. 14, 15 and, if necessary, 16 against Calgary in the conference quarter-finals.

The men’s volleyball team (16-6) moved from No. 5 up to No. 3 after a weekend split, winning 3-1 Saturday and losing 3-1 Friday, against No. 1 Alberta. The Spartans will open the Canada West playoffs at home Feb. 14, 15 and, if necessary, 16 against Winnipeg in the conference quarter-finals.

The women’s track and field team moved from No. 7 to No. 6 following its efforts at the University of Washington Husky Classic and Open meets. The highlight was Fiona Benson (Dawson Creek, B.C.) running the 3000m in a school record and personal best time of 9:29.12, which put her third in the CIS rankings.

The men’s track and field team remained unranked despite a strong performance in Seattle led by Calum Innes who clocked a personal best and school record time of 8.13 in the 60m hurdles. Innes is now tied for second in the CIS rankings.

The Spartans pole vaulters and a few of their sprinters will compete at the Van Ryswyck Indoor Invitational in Kamloops, B.C. Feb. 15 while the majority of the men’s and women’s teams will prepare to compete in the Canada West Championships Feb. 22-23 in Regina.

The men’s basketball team (11-9) won its fifth and sixth games in row this past weekend, sweeping UBC Okanagan 73-68 and 71-69.
