    I dont have any predictions, but I will add this. As far as distance goes, there appears to be a pretty even spread across all conferences. No one region is dominating right now, which i personally like to see

    Alright, BOLD PREDICTIONS TIME

    OUA:
    The Guelph Sprint Squad is looking dominant, and while Guelph doesn't have the middle distance dominance it once held over the OUA conference, 6/8 of the top guys 60m runners are currently at Guelph. That's a massively deep squad that will push points out of a bunch of events. The girls are doing similar things on their side.

    The real battle in Ontario will be between Toronto and Western for 2nd, and it may come down to whether or not Toronto's middle distance crew can pull out a good day in the relays. Western's stronger athletes are more evenly distributed throughout the events by comparison. Individual performances will matter more for Toronto, as Western has a slightly deeper squad with 17 more performances in the top 12 OUA Rankings than Toronto.

    AUS:
    Dalhousie seems to be the favourite for the overall AUS title, but it will be close fought with New Brunswick. AUS is one of the smaller regions which means individual breakout performances have larger impacts on the overall scoring. There are also events where there are currently very few listed performances. New entries in these could result in shifts in the overall rankings.

    CanWest:
    The rankings are showing what will be a tight showdown between Calgary and Saskatchewan out West next week, with a number of teams like Manitoba, Trinity Western, Alberta and Regina all within striking distance of a Male or Female Banner. Most events seem to be pretty tight and competitive meaning that individual breakout performances could see the rankings shifting quite a bit. CanWest will definitely one of the more exciting regions to watch!

    RSEQ:
    Laval is by far the favourite in this region, though the distance between them (us) and 2nd and 3rd is perhaps closer than it has been in recent years. UdeM and McGill look to be in a tight fight for 2nd and 3rd. I don't expect any crazy surprises with the results, the top teams are deep enough that individual performance variance won't affect the overall outcomes by large margins.

    Guelph strong in sprints/hurdles, middle distance, jumps, throws, multis and relays - both M and W

    Prediction - over half of the AUS track event records go down now that they finally have an up to date 200m track to hold conference champs at instead of the bush-league 160m ankle breaking 9 laps to a 1500m Moncton track.

    Your statement is pretty accurate concerning the female team. Using the actual RSEQ ranking, Laval would win easily (Laval: 239.5, UdeM: 140; McGill: 122.5; Sherbrooke: 117) mainly with the points brought by their throwers (45 points) and jumpers (46 points). The fight should be interesting for the 2nd and 3rd place.

    The fight for the 1st place on the men side should be a bit more exciting. With the actual ranking, Laval would win with 205.5 while UdeM would be in 2nd place (178.5) followed by McGill (148) and far behind Sherbrooke (85). While the margin is considerable between Laval and UdeM, athletes coming back from injuries could affect the results (ex: Jonathan Tedeschi for Laval, Clément Mougeolle/Brad Pai/Stephen Nziemi for UdeM, etc.).

    Laval is probably going to win comfortably both titles again this year with the help of the good depth they have in the different events. It will be interesting to see what happens in the coming years when UdeM and Sherbrooke realize that they need athletes in the different event groups to win the title.

    Guelph lacks depth in the 600m and will fall short of the 4x8 this year again, looking at results I don’t think the 4x800 will medal this year, 7:50 at best

    What none of you may know is that Dan Maguire of UPEI has actually been training in the Rift Valley for the last year (the reason for having no seed time) and is actually ready to take down the U Sports record AT AUS CHAMPIONSHIPS, AND THEN BREAK IT AGAIN IN EDMONTON, so y'all better watch out for him, he's ready to take on the country #GoPanthers #BDS

    Guelph has a runner who is about a second out of the USports medal rankings at this time but he has great upside potential and may peak at the Champs. Their 4x800 has a low 7:30 in them.

    McMaster men will walk away with a medal in every event from the 1000 to the 4x800. I put the over/under medal count at 5.

    Lucia Stafford isn't entered in any individual events according to the first draft list. She's only listed on the 4x800 relay. Brogan not listed anywhere at all.

    Fairly certain all you need is to have raced the event once to run it as OUA's. Doesn't matter now since she's not entered, but I believe she could have entered because of her early 3k

    By OUA playing regulations you need to run 2 OUA events (with one being in Canada) (to be classified as an OUA event there must be at least 2 OUA schools at the meet) to be eligible to run at the OUA champs.
