2nd in the conference! Your Cambridge Blues capped off their season with a second place finish in the BUCS Conference Cup Finals last Wednesday, March 11th. They officially ended their year with a 13-1 record, a league championship and a silver medal finish in the BUCS Conference Cup.
Congratulations to Oxford Brookes for their Cup win, and more importantly, to our girls for a great season! We can't think of a better way to send off 7 of our graduating undergraduates and graduates than having an undefeated league record and a second place finish in the Conference. Best of luck in changing the world, ladies!!! Thank you for such a great year!
UNDEFEATED IN THE LEAGUE
This year our Cambridge Blues finished 1st and undefeated in the BUCS Midlands 2B League. We are extremely proud of this wonderful result, which would have not been possible without the consistent effort from our team and coaches. The girls finished on top of the league with a 10-0 record. They are 13-0 in league and cup games, with a chance to bring home the Cup title back to Cambridge in their final game of the year!
HOME WIN FOR CAMBRIDGE BLUES
The CUWBbC Blues started their season off strong with a 59-29 win against Bedforshire on Wednesday 6th of November. After being granted a “win” in last week’s game due to forfeiture, the Blues were eager to put their hard work and training to the test on home court. Bedforshire, ranked first in the league, arrived at the Blue’s home court with just seven players, while Cambridge had a full bench of twelve. Coach Laura Wright, confident with the fitness and skills of her team, instructed Cambridge to run quick but thorough plays in attempt to tire out Bedforshire. The match finished at 59-29.
In the post-victory huddle, Coach Wright beamed proudly, and wryly asked the team if all of the sprints, skills, and drills that she’s put them through during the last 4 weeks has been worth it. Indeed, the Blues agreed, it has!
