Check out what the Cambridge teams have been up to this week, and vote for the Blues most deserving of TOTW!
CUET are now undefeated in their BUCS mini-leauge, having achieved a team win against the University of Derby. The team dominated the individual as well: not only did the team take the top four positions at Northampton but the individual Cambridge riders won every single match. This extraordinary result stands them in good stead for the upcoming varsity match and the BUCS regionals.
The Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club have been making waves on the river, with the two Eights boats winning their respective categories at the Quintin Head. The CUWBC 1st VIII won the Elite category, in a strong time of 10:52.6, placing them 33rd out of 227 eights, ahead of many men’s crews. What’s more, the 2nd VIII came second only to the Cambridge 1sts, beating every other university 1st boat.
CUAFC came out victorious in their mud/bloodbath against Oxford Brookes, giving them a valuable 3 points and putting them back at the top of the league. In a frantic game which ended 4-3, it was Herring’s second goal at 72 minutes which secured the win. Oxf*rd, also seeking promotion this season, will be shaken at this result, whilst the Light Blues can be heartened at this proof of their resilience.
Hare and Hounds
The Cambridge Hare and Hounds had one of the most successful years in the club’s history at their BUCS championships this weekend. Their silver team medal had the added triumph of putting them ahead of O*ford (3rd) in the biggest cross country race of the season.
