Mens 1st basketball rounded off a commendable season with a comfortable 94-54 win away to Worcesterjoe cook/varsity

As the BUCS season moves into its final throws, and with the quite real possibility of no arranged sport anywhere around the land for the foreseeable future, teams gear up for hard-fought cup final fixtures. In this, an oustanding tally of four Cambridge teams found themselves at the Conference Cup Finals over at UEA (11/03), all of whom had been relegated from Tier 1 in 2018/19 but had more than proved their credentials in Tier 2 this season.

Fencing M2, Basketball W1 and Lacrosse M1 all gained instant promotion back to Tier 1 at the first ask, whilst Netball’s fantastic efforts saw them narrowly pipped at the post to finish second. 

On Cup Final day, Fencing 2 were able to win gold medals after a very satisfying victory over Oxford 2nd who they had also faced over the weekend at Varsity. The other three put in equally valiant performances and were all able to bring silver medals back to the Fens.

Basketball – Men's 1st vs Worcester – Result: Win 

Men’s basketball were able to finish their splendid season with a win against Worcester to finish with a solid 4-6 win/loss ratio to record a 4th place finish and secure their place in Tier 1 for next year. A great campaign offers much to build on for the future in a hugely competitive league as the squad finished only behind the incredibly well-resourced outfits from Derby, Nottingham Trent and Nottingham. 


Ultimate Frisbee – Worcester vs Men's 1st – Result: Win

The Ultimate team managed to finish the regular league season on a high in this rearranged fixture deep into the West Midlands away to Worcester with a commanding 12-8 victory. The fixture list wasn’t kind to the team this year with a five-game season seeing them trek to Worcester, Birmingham and Warwick. Despite these pilgrimages, the team now progress to the Trophy Cup Competition scheduled to take place on 4th and 5th April.
