TORONTO (U SPORTS) – A pair of gold medals by sisters Gabriela and Lucia Stafford have lifted the Toronto Varsity Blues back up to the No.1 spot in women's track and field in this week's U SPORTS Top 10 rankings.

Gabriela, a 2016 Olympian and Universiade silver-medalist, won the 3000-metre race while younger sister and rookie Lucia finished first in the 800 metres, as Toronto picked up five top-five finishes at the Spire D1 Invitational in Geneva, Ohio. The Varsity Blues host the Hal Brown meet on Saturday.

In swimming and wrestling, the UBC Thunderbirds and Brock Badgers remain on top following conference championships over the weekend.

In other U SPORTS rankings, Carleton (men's basketball), Laval (women's basketball), UNB (men's hockey), UBC (women's hockey), Manitoba (men's volleyball), Alberta (women's volleyball) and Guelph (men's track and field) all hold on to their pole positions for another week.
