TORONTO, Ont. - The University of Toronto Varsity Blues soccer teams moved up in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) national rankings this week (Sept. 30.). The women climbed four spots to No. 4, while the men jumped two spots to No. 6 in the country.

Under the direction of interim head coach Eva Havaris, the Varsity Blues women’s soccer team has risen to the top of the CIS ranks and now holds the second best record in Canada. They have tallied 26 goals for while only allowing two against. This past weekend, the Blues crushed their opponents, recording 5-1 and 6-0 victories over the Trent Excalibur and the RMC Paladins, respectively. With a solid mix of veteran leadership and young talent, the Blues currently sit atop the OUA with a 7-1-0 record.

The Varsity Blues men’s soccer team also recorded two big wins this weekend, defeating the Excalibur 4-2 on Saturday and the Paladins 4-0 on Sunday.
