Brunel have won their first LUCA title to become Indoor Champions.
The west London university – known for its sporting excellence – is the first institution outside of the University of London to win the LUCA Indoor Championships. Most impressively, they did it with just 10 athletes.
Out of these ten athletes, nine scored LUCA points, with Remi Jessop leading the way with eight points across the 60 and 200m. Another win and four points came from Annika Teska who also broke a course record in the high jump with her 1.70 effort.
Brunel had been on course to win the championship throughout most of the day. But in the United Hospitals Championships, RVC and St George’s went into the relays both with a shot to win the old shield.
It was to be RVC’s day, the first time in the competitions 151 year old history. They pipped reigning champions St George’s by three points. Daniel Cork received the trophy on behalf of the club, a just reward for picked up 10 UH points and a new championship record in the shot put (15.29)
More to come.
