With our second-to-last week of fixtures completed, we held hope that our teams would be able to add to their successful seasons.
Our sporting week began with BNU Dance travelling to Kingston to compete in their second competition of the year on Saturday 4 March. It was a great day for our teams as they came away placing in all categories.
- Novice Ballet – 1st place
- Advanced Jazz – 1st place
- Novice Contemp – 2nd place
- Advanced Contemp – 1st place
- Street – 1st Place
- Wildcard – 2nd Place
- Trio – 1st Place
- Jazz Freestyle – 1st Place
- Contemp Freestyle – 1st Place
As well as coming away placing in all categories, our very own Zaya came away winning Judges Choice, capping off a well and truly successful day for BNU Dance.
Then we move to Sunday and Futsal where our team made the long journey to play Canterbury. They ran away with a massive 7-0 victory to accompany their 9-6 victory from the week before, also against Canterbury. With these results it puts them level on top of the league, however, due to their head-to-head against Portsmouth they finish second and narrowly miss out on promotion.
Men’s basketball last week beat Portsmouth away 55-68 to set up a grand finale this week against Goldsmiths, where a win would see them win their league. After a tough game where the lads played their hearts out they fell agonisingly short with a final score of 65-69. This left them 3rd in the league but, due to their superior bucket-difference, it could mean that they will get promotion.
Men’s football 1st team continued their unbeaten league run against Brunel, beating them 2-1 to cap off the title triumph and claim their place as BUCS league winners. Men’s football 2nd team closed their season off with a well-earned 2-2 draw and the 3rd team played West London under floodlights, but succumbed to a 3-2 loss.
Netball 2nd team took to the court last week in their penultimate fixture, unfortunately losing 49-56. Netball 1st team then had their game, and they completed their unbeaten league campaign with a comprehensive 68-38 victory. This week they went to Surrey to play in the BUCS Cup Finals Day against Portsmouth, but after doing so well during the match, they fell short at the end with a 49-43 loss. The Netball 1st team have done incredibly well this season and we're so proud to see them in the BUCS finals!
Women’s hockey rounded off their season last week with a 2-1 victory over Imperial, meaning they finish second in the league caping off a massive improvement from last year.
