Six teams win gold in Perth
5 October; Aaron McNaughton
The University of Melbourne continued to prove it is one of the country’s premier sporting universities by winning six National Championships at the 2022 Uni Nationals in Perth, taking the University's tally for 2022 to seven after Women's Freestyle claimed gold at Snow Nationals in early September, to claim third overall in the 2022 overall rankings. The seven titles mean the University claims the John Campbell Trophy as South Overall Champions.
Women’s championship teams were Badminton, Fencing, Hockey, Netball and Table Tennis while Men’s Table Tennis was the only men's team to take top honours.
National runners-up were earned by three teams – Mixed Lacrosse, Women’s Cycling and Women's Taekwondo.
Third place was collected by eight Melbourne teams in Open Sailing, Mixed Squash, Women's Kendo, Women's Touch Football, Women's Volleyball, Men's Badminton, Men's Hockey and Men's Taekwondo.
Leading from the front, University sport captain Gabby Coffey earned a gold medal as part of the undefeated Women's Netball side which dominated the competition, their smallest winning margin being the gold medal match which they won 60-48. The 2022 event was the first Uni Nationals since 2019, meaning Women's Badminton, Women's Fencing and Women's Table Tennis all defended their titles won on the Gold Coast in 2019.
The University was also honoured as the South Spirit Champion for the support and comradery shown by all athletes who represented the University in Perth.
