We're only two weeks into the WCSSAA and District 8 spring seasons and trends are already starting to emerge. Here's an early take and please keep in mind WCSSAA scores and standings are unofficial.
District 8 boys soccer
Absolutely nothing is settled in this league with St. David (3-0-1), St. Mary's (3-0-0) and Resurrection (2-1-0) duking it out for first and St. Benedict (2-2-0) close behind.
Key games next week both feature St. David, which tackles Resurrection on Monday and St. Mary's on Wednesday.
District 8 girls soccer
The same four schools are fighting for top spot with St. David (4-0-0) ahead of Resurrection (2-0-1), St. Benedict (2-1-1) and St. Mary's (2-1-0).
Next week's big games are the same as they are in the boys division, with St. David against Resurrection on Monday and St. David against St. Mary's on Wednesday.
WCSSAA girls soccer
Bluevale (4-0), Grand River (3-0-1) and Huron Heights (2-1-1) have been the top teams to date in the upper tier, while Glenview Park (4-0) is the only defeated team in the lower loop.
Grand River faces Bluevale next Thursday in a game that could decide first place in the standings.
Just like that, playoffs start the following week.
WCSSAA boys soccer
Eastwood (4-1) looks to be the team to beat in the Premier Division, although Sir John A. Macdonald (3-1-1) does have a 1-0 win over the Rebels to its credit. Bluevale (2-1-2) will see where it stands with games next week against SJAM and Eastwood. Cameron Heights (3-1-1) lost to Eastwood but defeated Bluevale and has a game next week against SJAM.
Preston (4-0-1) leads the First Division with Elmira (4-1) and Huron Heights (3-1-1) close behind. Huron Heights and Elmira meet next week as teams jockey for higher spots in the following week's playoff qualifying round.
Galt won a WCSSAA title last year out of the lower division so anything is possible.
WCSSAA girls rugby
KCI (4-0) leads the way in the top division, followed by Bluevale (3-0-1) and Waterloo-Oxford (3-1). Bluevale and KCI play Thursday afternoon in a game that will tell us whether two-time champion KCI is once again the team to beat.
Grand River (4-0) leads the lower division ahead of Elmira (3-1), Huron Heights (2-2) and Jacob Hespeler (2-2).
The Renegades have games remaining with Jacob Hespeler and Huron Heights.

Too early to tell, although it wouldn't be a huge shock to see WCI (1-0) and Preston (2-0) slugging it out at the end.
