For those of you looking for the women's mid-season rankings, I'm sorry to say that we're running a little behind schedule due to midterm season. Rest assured, we will make them available as soon as they as ready.

Fail. Midseason ≠ 2 days before OUA's.

1. Mac - Should be able to go toe-to-toe with Guelph. Carson and Coates are a most recognizable "C+C" duo since Cheech and Chong. And We'll find out for sure how they stack up against Guelph Sat. Sources tell us that depends on how good of a job they do at "keeping their hands off the sexy men's team" 2. G-Spot - Stirring the pot a little bit with this one. Lalonde + Seccafien are like the Lennon and McCartney of the team, and we hope the rest of the team plays a role more like George and Ringo than like Pete Best and Stu Sutcliffe. They're perhaps a bit deeper than Mac is but we feel this may only lead to a diffusion of responsibility, like with the case of Kitty Genovese. 3. Vic - The women’s team battle is shaping up like the US election: not too many votes for the third parties. Last year's ROTY Pennock and "Trendy" Trenholm have been MIA so far this season, but they've results as good-looking as the McMaster men's team otherwise (this is what happens when you outsource your data collection). They were lucky last year to end up where they did; this year they have more experience, but will they be able to put it to use? 4. McGrizzle - Our disdain for the men's teams from "La Belle Province" is matched only by our love of the girl's teams from that same place. Cummings, McCuaig, Porfilio are running well and Pfister is coming around as well. Like Pre, this team will run strong but ultimately finish with a depressing 4th. Oh well, there's always the after-party. 5. #StangBiddies - In the words of Rob Kitz and Jeff Barr, this paper tiger is lacking claws. Still they're deep enough that they should do reasonably well at Nationals. Otherwise, as coach Vigars so aptly put, "you'll all be pieces of sh*t". 6. U of T - Jewett is running's equivalent to a hole-in-one, and the Hennessys, as their namesake would suggest, have been knocking a lot of people off their feet. Should be good for 6th. 7. Sask - The Edwards sisters get a special mention being triathletes, but unfortunately for them London hasn't seen enough rain this year to flood over the Thames. The rest of the team has been running well collectively, so we might yet see something interesting out of them. Then again, interesting things don't often come out of Saskatchewan, and this time around will likely be no exception. 8. Queen's - Hulse appears to be following in the footsteps of her brother, in that she has pretty much dropped off the face of the earth. Staelhi is now not only the #1 contender for ROTY, but this team's new #1 runner, in front of fellow rookie Dunlap. "This team is so young, why they only just started walking a couple weeks ago," comments coach Boyd. "I feel more like a babysitter than an XC coach." Jokes aside, this team will be one to watch for in the next couple years.

@limestonemiler Ellen Pennock was 13th at the U23 World Triathlon Championships last week. Should be plenty of time for her to recover and race at CIS, if that's the plan.

@limestonemiler I could say the same to you... Midterms aren't that hard. Especially at Western.
