OTTAWA (CIS) – The Toronto Varsity Blues and Windsor Lancers top the women’s and men’s national rankings, respectively, heading into this week’s CIS track and field championships at York University (Thursday-Saturday).

 

On the women’s side, Toronto goes in as the favourite ahead of Alberta, Guelph, Western and York. The Blues captured their first CIS team banner since 1998 a year ago.

 

In men’s competition, top-ranked Windsor also hopes to successfully defend its team title after being crowned on home turf last winter. The Lancers are joined in the pre-championship top five by Toronto, Guelph, Laval and York. 

 

In the only other Top 10 rankings this week, the UNB Varsity Reds were once again a unanimous choice for No. 1 in men’s hockey.

 

UNB is one of seven teams that have already qualified for the University Cup tournament in Halifax (March 17-20), along with StFX, Saint Mary’s, UQTR, Western, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The final berth will go to the winner of Saturday’s OUA bronze-medal game between Guelph and Carleton.
