TOP 10 TUESDAY: Tigers vault to No.1 in women’s volleyball for first time in program history

U SPORTS Staff

The Dalhousie Tigers are the new queens of the volleyball court.

The undefeated Tigers (16-0), who were idle over the weekend, claimed their first No.1 ranking in women’s volleyball in program history after previous No.1 Calgary (16-4) split a weekend series against unranked MacEwan – losing in a five-set marathon on Saturday. Dalhousie hosts Saint Mary’s and Acadia this weekend.

Meanwhile on the ice, the Montreal Carabins (13-3-0) return to the pole position after back-to-back victories over then-ranked No.4 McGill (11-6-0) and Ottawa. The Carabins host Carleton Friday before visiting crosstown rival No.6 Concordia (10-4-3) on Saturday.

In other U SPORTS rankings, Alberta (men’s hockey), Ryerson (men’s basketball), Laval (women’s basketball), Brandon (men’s volleyball), UBC (men’s and women’s swimming), Guelph (men’s and women’s track and field) and Brock (men’s and women’s wrestling) 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 men’s hockey, it will be combined with the results of the media panel balloting (each weighted 50%) to produce the final top 10. For more information, click here.
