University Wins Six Championships at Nationals Division 1 2018

4 October; Liam Petterson


The University continued to show it is one of Australia’s top sporting universities by winning six national championships at the 2018 UniSport Nationals Division 1 competition on the Gold Coast (formerly Australian University Games). Our premiers were Women’s Badminton and Men’s and Women’s Fencing, retaining their 2017 championships, as well as Men’s and Women’s Tennis, and Women’s Volleyball.

National runners-up were earned by Women’s Football, Women’s Surfing, Women’s Rowing and Women’s Table Tennis.

Third places were aplenty as Men’s Badminton, Women's Cycling, Men’s Basketball, Men’s Hockey, Women’s Swimming, and Men’s Table Tennis came home with a medal.

It was the first time in history that the University has won both the Men’s and Women’s Tennis championships in the same year. The Men’s team were led by Tyler Tranquille, who played the ‘match of his life’ to beat RMIT’s undefeated Jack Thiessen, according to the Tennis Club. Macey Ren and Stefani Stojic earned vital singles victories for the Women’s team, and also scored doubles wins with the help of Berlinda Lim and Monika Rajicic.  

There were several inspiring individual performances too, with Isabel Napier winning her 5th straight Women’s Pole Vault gold, and Lizzie Hedding earning a Women’s Long Jump gold as well as a silver in the Women’s 100m Sprint. Commonwealth Games gold medallist and Bachelor of Science student Jemima Montag stormed home to win gold in the 5000m Walk, and Kat Anderson won the Women’s 800m final and came third in the 1500m.

The University’s Female captain Ebru Efe earned a second-place finish after making the grand final with the Women’s Football team, which was unlucky to lose 3 – 1 to the previous eight-time champions the University of Sydney. Efe’s team scored 19 goals in five games, and only conceded its first goal in a 1 – 1 draw to UTS in the semi-final, before Efe scored the winning penalty in a shootout.

Fencing were utterly dominant, winning every team event and three of six individual events. Ned Fitzgerald won gold in the Individual Foil and Epee, as well as gold with the Sabre and Epee teams. His sister, Imogen Fitzgerald, won gold in the Women’s Individual Sabre and silver in the Individual Foil, as well as taking gold as part of the Women’s Foil team and silver in the Sabre team. 

No teams were relegated, meaning that the University should challenge for more national championships at the 2019 Division 1 competition. 

Attention now turns to the Varsity Challenge Cup Netball on Friday 5 October, where Melbourne will take on rivals Monash at 4:00pm at the Sports Centre Stadium, as well as the Australian Boat Race on 14 October against the University of Sydney on Darling Harbour.
