Hockey is UAL's main success this season
As the Varsity Cup and the season’s end approaches, it has been a mixed year for the University of the Arts sports teams.
Our most successful sport this year has been hockey, the Men’s firsts have a 100% record in the League, and will be promoted as champions of their division.
The Women’s firsts are third in their league, and have narrowly missed out on promotion.
The Women’s seconds are top of their league, and face a final day shoot-out for the title, if they win, the Imperial Medic’s will need to win all of their remaining three games to deny Arts the title.
The Men’s second string are stranded in mid-table with two wins and three losses.
Netball has also impressed this year, the first team are sitting top of the league with six wins out of six and look set to be promoted as champions.
The seconds and thirds haven’t fared as well however, as both teams are rooted to the bottom of the table and have yet to win a league game.
The fourths have picked up one win this season, but still languish near the bottom of their league.
The Men’s basketball team have yet to pick up a win this season, and have suffered two heartbreaking defeats in overtime, they have picked up six points due to walkovers which have seen them avoid relegation.
The Women’s team have fared better, winning two and losing one of their games leaving them in third place, but need to win all of their remaining games to have a outside chance of promotion.
It has been a difficult season for Men’s football, the first team were in contention for promotion but have slipped out of the running and now lie in the relegation play-off position.
The second team is all but mathematically relegated, they need to win all three of their remaining games and make up a -29 goal difference.
The thirds have nothing left to play for this season, out of the promotion running and their league does not relegate a team.
The Women’s team have done better, winning two and drawing one of their games to give them a respectable mid-table finish.
The solitary Rugby Union team’s season has been disrupted by the weather, they’ve lost all nine of their league games, and need to win their last five to avoid relegation.
