Aston BUCS News - 22nd March 2017

BUCS

This week marks the end of the 2016/17 BUCS Season, as our teams played their final matches in their divisions. Our teams did not disappoint, with both the Mens Rugby and Womens Badminton clinching their respective league titles this week. 

We start this week with the Mens rugby firsts who clinched a dramatic Midlands 3A title on Wednesday afternoon. They were set to play Staffordshire University in their final match, however Staffordshire University were unable to put a team together for the match which meant Aston was awarded a bonus point win. This win put Aston level on top with 45 points, with their league rivals the University of Derby. With both teams having the same amount of points, the title was decided by points difference in the head to head matches between the two, with Aston narrowly coming out on top. Aston were crowned the Midlands 3A Champions.

Womens Badminton finished off their season with a dominating 8-0 win over the University of Bedfordshire. This win is the teams seventh straight victory in the Midlands 3A division which clinches them the league title. The team have been fantastic all season, with plaudits going to Monica and Tiffany who have not last a doubles match together all year. 

Mens Fencing are currently level on points with the two teams above them and just need to win their next match against the University of Leicester to clinch the title and promotion. The team is looking strong going into their final match, only losing one match all season after not being able to attend. The title would mean a lot to the club, as the teams founder Stan Bowley is set to finish his university degree this year.

Congratulations to Womens Badminton firsts, Mens Football firsts and Mens Rugby firsts who all clinched division titles, after performing fantastic this season #TeamAston
