UKU Junior Outdoor Nationals & School National Championships 18-19 - Results & Spirit Standings

Many thanks to all those who participated in our Junior Open Outdoor Nationals and School National Championships event at the end of June! We had 33 teams competing across 3 divisions, with fantastic talent and Spirit on display throughout!

 

In the Under-14 Division final, holders AirBadgers 1 (St Peter's School, Exeter) took on AirBadgers 2, with the school's first team running out comfortable winners. A strong display in their round robin for 9th place saw Ocelots (Bishop Heber School, Malpas) take home the Plate.

The Junior Division played out via a 7-team round robin, with AirBadgers and Sussex Stingrays facing off in the final round as the division's only unbeaten teams. However, AirBadgers' dominant display, which had seen Tonbridge Boars (Tonbridge School, Tonbridge) as the only team to put more than 2 points past them, continued, ensuring that they would be taking the trophy back to Exeter for another year.

We continue to see the score reporting and use of comments improving at these events, with many teams taking the opportunity to provide others with valuable written feedback, and promote even better Spirit at future events. However, a small number of scores had to be removed due to not being valid. Often, this was because the score fell outside the 'normal' range, but was not accompanied by a comment to indicate that it wasn't submitted accidentally or without correct application of the criteria. Accurate Spirit of the Game scores are essential to supporting teams to continually improve their Spirit in games, so please take the time to familiarise yourselves with the submission rules and ensure all players understand the scoring criteria. If you have any questions on how to submit scores, or how to use the criteria, please speak to a TD.
