The latest batch of U SPORTS and Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) national rankings – the first of 2018 – were released Tuesday, and three Cascades teams maintained their positions.
For the fourth straight edition of the U SPORTS national poll, the UFV men’s wrestling squad is ranked No. 3. A Canada West conference rival, the Alberta Golden Bears, tops the ranking, while the Brock Badgers are No. 2. The Cascades are in Edmonton this weekend for the Golden Bears Invitational.
The Cascades women’s volleyball team, despite picking up a weekend win over the then-No. 2 Douglas Royals, remained at No. 7 in the CCAA rankings for a sixth straight week. The squad sits third in the PACWEST conference at 8-6 going into a Friday-Saturday set vs. the Camosun Chargers on the road.
The Cascades men’s volleyball team is ranked No. 14 for a third straight edition of the CCAA national poll. Their 8-6 record mirrors the women’s team, and they’ll look to tighten their grip on third place in the PACWEST this weekend at fourth-place Camosun.
