Clean Sweep

Victoria appears to have gone for quality over quantity at the 2013 University Games, with the Ultimate Frisbee team taking top honours.

As reported in Salient last week, the Ultimate Frisbee team were the sole competitors Victoria sent to the Games, held in Dunedin last week.

Previous University Games have seen Victoria send in excess of ten teams comprised of hundreds of athletes to travel across the country to compete. Despite the 2013 games being held in Dunedin, the remote location did not stop AUT, Auckland, and Massey from sending over four teams each.

This is the first year of the University managing clubs since it took over control from VUWSA. 2012 VUWSA Clubs Officer Reed Fleming believes the University has “failed” at University Games, despite providing a strong Clubs Week.

“If they are serious about clubs, and student involvement in co-curricular activities, they need to step up their game.

“The University clearly doesn’t understand how to engage with clubs. VUWSA had very good relationships with clubs and their members, and knew that just sending an email isn’t enough,” Fleming told Salient.

In other sporting news, Victoria’s rowing team competed in the New Zealand Universities Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro last weekend. Results were unavailable when Salient went to print.
