LANGLEY, British Columbia – In an historic first, all three of the Trinity Western women’s teams that are currently in season find themselves ranked in the top two in Canada as the women’s volleyball and soccer teams are both No. 1 and the women’s cross country team is No. 2. On the men’s side, the Spartans volleyball team is No. 3 and the cross country team is No. 10.

In the season-opening poll for women’s volleyball, the Spartans (2-0) are No. 1 in the country after sweeping Thompson Rivers, 3-0 and 3-2, to start the season. This is the first time in program history that the Spartans women have opened the season at No. 1. The Spartans are back in action next weekend when they travel to Kelowna, B.C. to play No. 5 UBC Okanagan.

On the pitch, the women’s soccer team (9-0-1) remained unbeaten through its first 10 games after beating Victoria 1-0 and UBC 3-0. The Spartans, who are No. 1 for the third week in a row, wrap up their regular season schedule this weekend when they host Fraser Valley Friday before traveling to UBC Sunday.

The women’s cross country team moved up to No. 2 in the rankings, after previously being at No. 3, for the first time in program history after finishing first as a team at the Western Washington Classic in Bellingham, Wash. this past weekend. The Spartans will now prepare for the B.C. Cross Country Championships Oct. 25 in Abbotsford, B.C.

The men’s volleyball team (2-0) sits at No. 3 in the opening poll after beating TRU 3-1 and 3-0 to start the season. Like the women’s team, the men’s team plays at UBC Okanagan this weekend.

The men’s cross country team dropped to No. 10, after previously being ranked No. 8, after finishing fifth at the Western Washington Classic. Similarly to the women, the men will now prepare for the B.C. Cross Country Championships Oct. 25 in Abbotsford, B.C.

The men’s soccer team (3-5-2) is unranked after a weekend in which it tied Victoria 0-0 but lost to UBC 3-0. The team will finish the regular season this weekend when it hosts Fraser Valley Friday and travels to UBC Sunday.
