2023 Girls’s U Sports activities cross nation pre-season energy rankings

Fall is within the air, and meaning one factor: it’s time for our annual pre-season U Sports activities cross-country energy rankings.

Right here’s how the rankings work: if a staff is successful, they’ll climb the rankings. If a staff is dropping, they slide. We are going to replace the rankings each three weeks through the season within the ramp-up to the 2023 U Sports activities Championships on Nov. 12, from London, Ont.

We’re eight weeks away from the 2023 U Sports activities Championship, so listed below are the rankings of the highest 10 girls’s groups within the nation, along with a few athletes to observe for this season of their respective conferences.

10. Toronto Varsity Blues (OUA)

9. UBC Okanagan Warmth (CanWest)

8. Victoria Vikes (CanWest)

2. Western College (OUA)

1. UBC Thunderbirds (CanWest)

The highest-ranked UBC Thunderbirds are locked and loaded after a second-place end at nationals final yr behind Laval Rouge-et-Or, who received their second consecutive U Sports activities girls’s championship in Halifax. Laval has misplaced two of their top-four runners heading into the season, with 2021 U Sports activities champion Jessy Lacourse and Florence Caron graduating—two spots that can certainly be tough to interchange. The Thunderbirds have most of their staff coming back from 2022 (apart from the reigning U Sports activities champion Glynis Sim). The UBC Thunderbirds have a greater high six than every other program within the nation proper now, and they are going to be out to show that as they tackle #2 Western Mustangs and #3 Guelph Gryphons on Sept. 23 on the Western Invitational.
