2009 The British Universities Pool Championships

 

 

TEAM CHAMPIONS 2009!
SINGLES CHAMPION 2009: Louisa Gill

 

The BUCS 2009 Championships took place over two days in Coventry this year with 18 teams and 58 players from 10 Universities taking part.

We had three teams with a total of 11 players. The event was very intense and somewhat nerve-wrecking however all of us girls kept it together really well to secure yet another double BUCS victory, winning both the team event and singles event!!
 
All three of our teams made it to the quarter finals where OXFORD 3rd was unfortunate enough to be drawn against Warwick 1st, the team that carried on to play OXFORD 1st in the finals. OXFORD 2nd made it to the semi-finals only to be knocked out by their own OXFORD 1st. OXFORD 1st swiftly took the win against Warwick 1st in the finals, making OXFORD the team champions for the 5th year in a row!   
 
In the singles championship events, 4 of our girls, Jojo, Louisa, Ceri and Rachael made it into the quarterfinals. Jojo played Louisa in the semi-finals for a spot in the finals, and Louisa took the opportunity winning 3-1. Louisa’s last couple of frames against Kate Hillman (Cambridge 1st captain) in the finals involved possibly the most amazing tactical shots played at that entire event. Oxford members looked on nervously as Louisa kept her nerve and Kate lost hers. Louisa showed great strength and pulled off a close 4-3 win!
 
 
WELL DONE to everyone!!
