BUTTS 2015 Leg 2: Loughborough

Posted by David Richardson on 25th November 2015

UWAC again enjoyed success on Sunday in both experienced and novice categories. The experienced team beat Loughborough, Birmingham and Derby to come first, and the novice team came a respectable third to Birmingham and Loughborough. The experienced team was again made up of Tom Hall, James Jeffs, Enrik Nako and Maddie Meatyard. The Novice team was made from Gillian Yu, James Holmes, Sean Aller and Ramazan Samat.

Individual results for the Sunday are gents experienced gold for Tom Hall, gents experienced bronze for James Jeffs, ladies experienced gold for Maddie Meatyard and ladies novice silver for Gillian Yu.

Combining the results from Nottingham Trent's leg (which was shot on the Saturday) shows that the Experienced team came 1st, clearing 2nd place Birmingham by 52 points (over their 1 gold lead from last week). The Novice team came 4th overall again, being bested by Birmingham, Loughborough and Nottingham.

For the boat race the Warwick A team planned to use their momentum from knocking Loughborough's A team from their undefeated perch. Loughborough used their home advantage and brought along their own ringer, beating Warwick A with a team size of 2. Loughborough and Warwick won't meet again until BUTTS Indoor Championships next term. Warwick B came 3rd place, and Warwick Novices came last.

Another well done to all archers who shot at the leg last weekend. We now have a few months until the next BUTTS leg which provisionally be on UWAC home territory.
