Brock pins down No. 1 women’s wrestling spot


Brock Badgers find themselves in a group of three new teams atop Canadian Interuniversity Sport national rankings this week.

The Badgers took over the No. 1 ranking in women’s wrestling, moving up from the No. 2 position. The Badgers’ men’s team maintained it No. 7 spot. The Badgers also jumped up two position to women’s basketball, moving into the No.6 slot.

McMaster Marauders best rankings were a pair of No. 8s in men’s swimming ( a drop of two positions) and men’s wrestling ( no change) while the women’s swimming team held the No. 10 spot, falling three positions from the previous week.

Joining the Badgers as newcomers to No. 1 positions are the Dalhousie Tigers, who dethroned Toronto in men’s swimming, while Regina Cougars rule in men’s wrestling.

McMaster does not compete in men’s or women’s hockey.
