Lent 2015 wrap-up

Lent term is notoriously busy for Uni Ultimate players and this year was no different. Trainings were attended, tournaments were won, Oxford was beat, injuries were suffered, banter was exchanged.

Let's start with College League.
Jesus beat Penguins in a close final to take Lent league. Congratulations. Instead of the traditional cuppers tournament at the end of term, CLUDO Sam Mouat organised the inaugural Hat tournament for college league players. 45 players signed up individually and were divided into 5 teams at random. Team 'Dragon' took the title. Cuppers will be back at the end of Easter term.

Moving on to the Uni teams.
Right at the start of term, the SB Open squad was looking to build chemistry early at Winter League in London. This seems to have paid off as the Open Firsts have a flawless run in the outdoor season so far. At Varsity, the Cambridge vs. Oxford battle ended tied at 4-4, with Cambridge taking all four Open games while Oxford won the three Women's and the alumni game. The three-pint-challenge title remained unclaimed. We will be back in Oxford next year seeking to take all the various trophies back to Cambridge. A week after Varsity, we hosted Regionals for 17 open and 6 women's teams. There were four bids to nationals on the line for the open teams while they women did not have to reach a particular place to qualify for nationals. SB Women only narrowly lost to the strong Sussex team in their final game to finish 4th. SB Open 1 cruised through the weekend with a 70-4 goal record overall. SB2 finished 7th after taking down nationals contender Brunel. They will be in the discussion for nationals next year. SB3 was ranked better than any (non-SB) second team at 12th. SB Mixed has just returned from mixed nationals and took an impressive 6th place. Now the students are impatiently waiting for the big show, the grand finale, the epic climax of the uni season - Open and Women's Nationals, which will be in Nottingham at the end of April and will include the Alumni Cup. Strange Blue will likely be represented in all three divisions.

Let's talk CUlt.

Next up: GB. I am very pleased to see a large group of Cambridge-based players in strong contention for the GB senior and U23 teams. Although rosters haven't been finalised, it is fair to say we have again proved that Cambridge is a powerhouse in the UK Ultimate scene when it comes to both numbers and top-end talent.

Happy Easter! See you next term,
George (President)
