The 2020 VC Cup was a huge success and no doubt thanks to the huge presence from our Athletics club members running in three different teams! Out club president, Gillian Hagenus, representing the Faculty of Arts carried her team to victory across the line this afternoon with excellent form and pace.
The Sciences team was almost made up entirely of AUAC members with Sarah French, Stella Batelann, male staff member and, Alex Begbie (run in that order) all running excellent times achieving 2nd place overall, it was a surprise to all that they didn't take the trophy.
The rest of the club members had some outstanding runs, notably Angus Haines, Vice President running the second leg and moving his teams place from 7th to 1st, overtaking everyone, but his team ultimately finished in 6th place. Mark Pace shot out, running the first leg for ECMS lead the pack for quite some time and got his team off to an excellent start.
We also had committee members Belinda Rutherford and Peter Baker-Hutton as well as a few other club members supporting from the sidelines. Everyone was blessed with perfect weather and an excellent atmosphere provided as usual thanks to the outstanding work done by the AU Sports office.
