Michaelmas 2014 wrapup

Michaelmas term has just ended and the students are about to go back home for Christmas. Here's a short summary of what happened in the last 8 weeks, in reverse chronological order.

ARU's Darkside took Indoor Cuppers with a nail-biting 6-5 win over Jesus. ARU also won the Michaelmas League to complete a mini-double. Congratulations to them and thanks to CLUDO Sam Mouat for a fantastic event.

At Men's (formerly Open) Div 1 Indoor Nationals, the squad couldn't quite continue last year's streak but reached a convincing 5th place under the captaincy of Chris Barnes and Rolo Turnell-Ritson.

SB Women's captain Helen Hambling took two teams to Regionals which ended up taking 9th and 17th, respectively. Certainly a lot of promise and the potential to upset some strong teams in the future.

Mixed Regionals saw the first team narrowly missing out on qualifying for Nationals with a 7th place finish. I'm sure Captains Charlie Daffern and James Richardson will be looking to replicate CUlt Mixed's success in the outdoor season.

The new regional system (for Men's and Women's division, Cambridge is now in the 'East&London' region) could not end the regionals dominance of the Open team though - it was the third straight win at open indoor regionals. SB2 performed very well and took 8th, making it the highest-ranked second team in the region.

It is worth mentioning that across all teams and divisions, our student teams were consistenly in the top third of the spirit rankings, with the Open second team even winning with an outstanding score of 14.40.

To demonstrate the results of our summer training, we ran a friendly Powerifting competiton which Matt Hogsden won very decisively, including a 155kg deadlift at only 72kg bodyweight.

At the start of term, we were well-represented at the Societies' Fair (this time with a much better spot next to the boat club) and held the traditional beginners' session each of which had a smashing turnout of over 50 freshers.

Finally, just before the start of term, CUlt Open went to Frankfurt to compete in the European Club Championships. Despite only managing to get 20th place, beating several highly ranked teams and getting second place in Spirit was the icing on the cake of a spectacular Open season, lead by captain Chris Tull.

Happy Holidays! I can't wait for 2015.
