UKU Schools Championship and Junior (U20) Outdoor Nationals - Results

Airbadgers 1 U20

 

Last weekend, a record number of young teams descended on Birmingham to compete in UK Ultimate's largest ever Schools Outdoor Championships and the Junior (U20) Outdoor Nationals.

Huge congratulations to AirBadgers (St Peter's, Exeter) for a thoroughly dominant performance across all divisions - they continue to set the standard both on the pitch and also in the complex logistics of bringing 10 teams all the way up from the far south west.

In the Schools Y11 & Under division, AirBadgers 1 beat Flux 1 (Twycross House, Leicestershire) in the final, with Ethan Morrell of Flux taking the MVP award. The Spirit of the Game award, as voted by other teams, was won by Manor (York).

In the Schools Y8 & Under division, another AirBadgers first team claimed the trophy, this time over Evolution (Aylesford School, Warwick), with the MVP award going to Ethan Murray. Spirit of the Game in this division went to new entrants Gateways School.

In the U20 division, played over 2 days on full size pitches, yet another AirBadgers 1 team once again took home the trophy, avenging a pool play loss to Ocelots 1 (Bishop Heber HS, Cheshire) in the final despite the best efforts of MVP Max Craven of Ocelots. Spirit of the Game went to Ravens, one of 8 Schools teams who joined the U20 competition on the Sunday - the best placed of those additional teams being, once again, AirBadgers 3.

(The Schools divisions used a simpler system which just voted for the best teams!)
