Welcome to our first chat of the University calendar! We start with UXIR - University Mixed Indoor Regionals. There are seven regions to cover, and our writers will be having the lowdown on each of them.
|Scottish Mixed Regional Champions: Glasgow|
|Yorkshire & East Midlands Champions: Huddersfield|
Yup, but three quite strong women: Elly White, Tanya Fozzard, and Isabella Barber-Lowell.
They scored more points than them?
At Div2, I can see Hallam breaking top four. York will need to up their D, but certainly have potential. Three in the top ten, two in top eight, one in top four.
Women: Alice Hanton- Leeds, Tanya Fozzard, Isabella Barber-Lovell- Huddersfield, Monica Persson- Nottingham, Zarah Dixon- Sheffield
Shout-out to Loughborough ladies Grace Wilkinson, Kathryn Styles, Sarah Lacy and of course Rupal Ghelani for being absolutely insane on and off the pitch.
All Star Squad: to be honest, I've only just started playing competitively and so haven't built up that name base yet so I'm just gonna shout out some amazing women players I saw at the weekend: Jo Lewis (Cardiff), Emily Stratton (Aberystwyth), Immie Wong (Swansea), Ophelia Byrne (Birmingham 1)
|South East Champions: Oxford|
Also wanted to add that Oxford Brookes actually ran all their offense through Erin McGready and Danni Barriball, and they were the only two players on the team who had been to a tournament before. With more experience on the rest of the team perhaps next year, those two could really carry the team even further.
|East & London Champions: Imperial College (their third team also won spirit)|
Similar to @gyanhan's point - the top teams all had really strong women and played through those women.
