CUB get their BUTTS kicked at Nottingham Trent21-11-2015
A rather sparse team of CUB archers made their way to Nottingham Trent on the 21st of November to shoot a Portsmouth in the second BUTTS leg competing against NTU, Nottingham and Oxford. Only 5 experienced archers and 3 novices made the trip to Robin Hood country.
Lydia Sinnett-Smith put in another good performance to take silver in the ladies' recurve competition in both the NTU and combined leg standings, again just behind Charlie Birch of Oxford. Antonio Rubino put in a strong performance to again take gold in the gent's novice recurve category with Alastair Houston making it a Cambridge 1-2. They each took 1st and 3rd place in the combined results.
The senior team of Lydia Sinnett-Smith, Jack Atkinson, Antonio Rubino and Liam Pattinson came 7th in the overall standings, well clear of Derby in 8th, whilst the novices, lacking a fourth team member came 8th overall.
In the overall standings the seniors are now 7th (though tied in 6th on leg points with NTU) and the novices fall from 2nd to 5th.
We hope to regroup over the vacation before many more competitions next term, hopefully fielding larger teams with a true reflection of our abilities. The overall standings haven't developed too much of a points gap yet, so watch this space.
