Melbourne Misses the VC Title By One Goal 

17 May; Natasya Rallios 


The fourth annual Varsity Challenge saw over 750 spectators barrack for the University in a multisport competition against Monash University. The Varsity Challenge (VC) was designed for the two top sporting universities in Victoria to meet and compete in Australian University sport events.

Monash holds the overall record with 3 title wins to the University’s 1, after recently winning the 2017 VC trophy. This year, the University kept up heavy competition to try and keep the title, which it won for the first time in 2016. Yet, after a total of five legs that included head to head matches in Badminton, Table Tennis, Hockey and Touch Football, Monash regained the 2017 VC trophy with an overall result of 8 to 7 wins.

Melbourne went into the final leg of the competition on 3 May trailing Monash 7-3 and needed to win all five matches in Volleyball, Hockey and Mixed Touch to hold onto the trophy.

The University teams got off to a good start with the mens Volleyball team defeating Monash 2-1 and the womens Volleyball team winning 3-0. The mens Hockey and mixed Touch Football teams had the University beating Monash 6-5 and 2-1, respectively.

The title came down to the last match, with the audience sitting on the edge of their seats with a tight womens Hockey game. The last 30 seconds saw Monash score a lucky goal to beat Melbourne 2-1.

Varsity Challenge coordinator Thomas Lutwyche says there was a lot of University talent this year and tremendous support from coaches, staff and spectators.

‘There was a fantastic showing by our teams, with some quality sport on display played in a competitive spirit. We had a great turn out. The Varsity Challenge is a sporting event that we all look forward to every year.’
