TOP 10 TUESDAY: Queen’s, defending champion Guelph open at No.1 in cross country

U SPORTS Staff

The Queen’s Gaels (women) and reigning national champion Guelph Gryphons (men) are the top-ranked cross country programs to start the 2018 season.

The Gaels, who captured the team silver medal last fall in Victoria, kicked off their season on Saturday, winning the Queen’s Invitational on home course at Fort Henry Hill, the host of the next two U SPORTS national championships. The Gryphons meanwhile, won their 10th national title in 12 years last November, but first since 2014. Both teams head to London, Ont., for the Western Invitational this weekend.

In other U SPORTS rankings, Cape Breton (men’s soccer), Trinity Western (women’s soccer) and Ottawa (women’s rugby) remain national leaders for another week.

New this season, U SPORTS is implementing the ELO Rating System for the calculation of its weekly national rankings. Powered by RankR, ELO’s unique algorithm blends a statistical calculation with customized variables that is adaptable across a range of sports. For more information, click here.
