U SPORTS Top Ten Tuesday

TORONTO (U SPORTS) – The Calgary Dinos (men) and reigning champion UBC Thunderbirds (women) begin the season as the top-ranked swimming programs in the nation.

For the Dinos – who claimed the team silver medal at last year’s national championship – it is the first No.1 ranking since March 1, 2011.
