Top Ten Update: Three Gee-Gees teams in Winter Sports Rankings

Wednesday October 30, 2013

Four uOttawa teams earned CIS Top Ten rankings this week as the first rankings for basketball were released. The Gee-Gees men’s team comes into the season holding the no. 3 spot in country while the women’s squad is the third OUA team in the mix, standing at no. 10. The women will face no. 1 ranked Windsor as part of the opening weekend of the regular season, which will also feature the Western Mustangs.

On the men’s side of the basketball poll, the weekend also shapes up for a top-ten battle as the Windsor men are ranked sixth, part of four OUA teams in the nation’s top ten.

Also this week, the women’s volleyball team moved up two spots to no. 8 in the closely-packed Top Ten. The Gee-Gees earned the boost following their 2-0 start to the regular season, registering straight set wins over Queen’s and RMC. Ottawa will face the only other Ontario member of the Top Ten, no. 4 York, on Sunday, November 3 in Toronto.

Despite their loss in the OUA quarter-final on Sunday, the women’s soccer team remained as a top-ranked team in the final Top Ten for that sport. The Gee-Gees fell from the number-one ranking to sixth place in the final coaches’ poll of the year.
