TOP 10 TUESDAY: New leaders in women’s hockey, men’s volleyball

U SPORTS Staff

The Montreal Carabins women’s hockey team and the Trinity Western Spartans men’s volleyball squad are the new teams to beat in their respective sports.

The Carabins (6-2-0), took over the No.1 ranking following a 4-3 overtime victory over then-No.5 Concordia, while the Spartans (7-1) conceded only a single set in back-to-back victories at Saskatchewan. Montreal visits crosstown rival No.4 McGill Thursday before hosting Carleton on Saturday. Trinity Western heads into a bye week.

In other U SPORTS rankings, UNB (men’s hockey), Carleton (men’s basketball), Laval (women’s basketball) and Calgary (women’s volleyball), UBC (men’s and women’s swimming) 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.
